Our friend Dan, the best man in our wedding, came to Bulgaria to spend almost 2 weeks with us. We spent time in Bulgaria, visited a neat Bulgarian town, hit up Istanbul, and spent a weekend on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria. There was A LOT of driving!
We spent Dan's first couple days in Sofia. It literally rained every day. Because of this, we did most of our adventuring at night.
We had traditional Bulgarian fare his first night (forgot my camera that night), the second night we went on a pub crawl that takes you to Sofia's most unique places and the next night we made reservations at this "club" that was really no more than a dingy smokey bar (f you ask me.) The last night in Sofia we went to our favorite restaurant to pig out on Turkish food (again, forgot my camera.)
The photos below are only from our pub crawl night.
Matt rented us a $38/night suite at this hotel. It was definitely a pleasant surprise as well. Definitely not the Ritz, but could have been SO much worse.
Tomorrow I'll hit our Istanbul trip (driving there is Bananas!) and our Black Sea trip.
