It is a long time since I made an entry here on the blog but, I have just returned from Bulgaria and I'll start on a simple Blog with some info for people wishing to drive Sofia/Burgas or visa versa.
Just some idea of driving time.
I left centre of Burgas at 2.00PM last week and drove all the way to Nova Zagora where we stopped at ''Happy'' for a late lunch at 3.30PM. So, 1 and 1/2 hour drive so far. Left at 4.45PM.
We then got to the next extension of the motorway around Stara Zagora at approx 5.15PM and drove all the way to Sofia at the 120Km per hour and got to Sofia Airport at approx 7.00PM.
So, driving time has improved dramatically and really now the only holdup is the section of road between Karnovat to Stara Zagora.
It is a lovely drive and especially from Stara Zarogra down to Burgas. The EU money is starting to roll in and you can see new vineyards; peach trees and miles and miles or wheat fields.
It was a pleasure to see and it is only a matter of time before large farmers from all over Europe start to buy farms in Bulgaria. ( we sell farms BTW!!!).
The drive is a bit tiring but nothing that will take you more than a good night sleep to recover. No fear in the driving as the roads are good and the signposting has also improved dramatically. Lots of filling stations with coffee shops along the way and, at this time of year, many many fruit sellers on the road with produce direct from their fruit farms.
Just writing this up as sometimes people seem to fear the drive from Sofia to Burgas and back.
Just leave plenty of time and take 1 long and 1 short break on the journey.
