First choice: Bulgaria.


Oh man, over the past few days I’ve really been thinking about how exciting it will be to actually start REAL life. Right now I just feel like i’m playing and not really doing anything special, even though i’m in school more than I sleep. So I was day-dreaming in class today about being in a foreign country and how I would dress, and what my hair might look like. I MIGHT ACTUALLY GET A TAN!!! * I know this isn’t a reason why i’m going, just an added bonus* I can only imagine the different customs that our country has for instance:

Bulgaria is known for fire dancing! Dancing barefoot on hot coals… *My feet are very sensitive, walking on sand makes me wince so…probably not up for that. However, I won’t say that it couldn’t happen, it very well could.

Above is a picture of a street (small town) Bulgaria. I’m sure this wouldn’t be our nice bungalow, but isn’t it gorgeous.

I hear the food over there isn’t half bad either! We’ll see. I’m going to write about each country we’re interested in to help to compare them.

  1. Hey Char…Long time 🙂
    Just a tip about Bulguria..the tradtional Bulgurian cooking takes a little getting used to. The salads are FABALOUS but the rest of it can be..intresting. I know alot of my friends had no problem with it, but I got rather ill the last day there. But they do have AMAZINGLY cheap (and fashionable!) shoes and purses!! I’ll be in England next year, so if you and Colby need a place to crash, drop me a line!
