My 21st birthday is coming up on the 2nd September, and my present from mum was a surprise holiday. She booked this back in October, and she has done amazing to keep it a secret for so long. The surprise destination was…Bulgaria! We stayed in the Golden Sands area, but also made a trip to Varna too. Here’s some of the photos from our week.
As you can see the week in Bulgaria was filled with so much fun. Relaxing days on the beach and around the pool, jeep safaris, a trip to another city (Varna), mini-golf, shopping, and too many all-inclusive cocktails (and tequila!).
The highlight of the week had to be the jeep-safari which took us through the national park. If you go, be prepared to be muddy and being thrown around. Especially, if you have a driver like Yan who seemed to forget he had a brake pedal! There are an endless number of different views during the journey and at the different stops, like the never-ending field of sunflowers. Stops include a chance to try homemade hibiscus honey, cliff top photo opportunity at Kavarna, Balchik gardens, and lastly a traditional Bulgarian barbecue with their traditional dancing and music. The only down-side to the week was the unexpected weather, but this definitely didn’t dull our time there.
I can’t thank my mum enough for giving me such an amazing week!
