I had my bag with with my cell phone and laptop and thought to myself that the value of these gadgets is more of less equivalent of the average YEARLY salary of the folks around here. The vast majority of them work hard, very hard.
The inequality in this world is staggering.
I would never discourage anyone from any type of travel or exploring a foreign city but you’re honestly better off going camping in your back yard than going to Manitoba.
If I continue at this pace my brain is going to ooze out.
It’s expensive, does absolutely nothing and it’s very unsanitary. Why do tourists fall for this crap?
Weird vibe. It was full of douchebag/ufc/sketchy/ugly tattoo types. Good music, though.
We found this pretty restaurant completely surrounded by roses with great music, 60 cent 1/2 Liter beers and super cheap food. As always, free use of the swimming pool and even a ping pong table. We will come here often, it’s just down the street.
A deadly hurricane that not only hurricanes but also climbs, scratches, bites, argues with you, wants constant attention, moves things around, hides things and knows exactly when to scream for you, generally at around 3:45AM.
Well, we have TWO hurricanes.
Below are their “time out” buckets. Only effective for about 7 seconds. Still a nice, peaceful 7 seconds that I cherish greatly.
Today was a bit cooler and we spent the day drinking beers and reading our Kindles.
Imagine dealing with the government of Communist Russia in 1940…but with more red tape, more frustration, overwhelming backwardness and bizarre rules……but 10X worser.
Check out this sign.
Big city hike, shopping, pub hopping (sitting at one right now) and still dealing with government and customs paperwork. I’m hoping on getting a special import number that will allow me to receive big ticket items from outside the EU. The wheels are in motion.
More than 100+++ clubs within walking distance.
Amalia stayed home with the bad-cats.
What’s there to say, an incredible event. They played everything I wanted to hear, the beers were $1.30 (fuck Canada and $8 concert beers, fucking fuck asshole thieves), we danced and sang along.
The only small problem is they played a few too many slow ballads, if I go to a huge concert like this I WANT TO ROCK OUT!!!!!!
Spent the WHOLE day (we wake up at 8am every morning these days, too bright to sleep) walking around all the beaches, hopping between beach bars and restaurants and on top of it all, I got a gorgeous haircut from the most amazing lady ever. I hate getting haircuts as I can’t sit still for over 2 minutes but yesterday’s experience was the best one yet. Walking around with bottles of champagne and chatting up the locals was RIDICULOUSLY fun. Everyone is just so crazy awesome and cool around here, holy doodles!!!!!! I think, on average, we meet about 30 new friends per day.
Also, I’ve never been more tanned (tannder?) than I am today.
Cleaned the van from top to bottom, it’s extremely hot outside and I was gasping for air the whole time, the coldest day in the coming week will be 26 degrees.
Dropped the van off at the shop for an oil and filter change and she should be ready to roar later this afternoon.
Obviously knocked on the door and was greeted by a super cool and very friendly French dude who’s been traveling all over Europe alone for the last year.
We grabbed a beer at the restaurant next door and talked about our adventures for almost two hours. His views on the world were exactly like mine. We covered everything, from the stupidity of Polish people, the French government, the friendliness of everyone and the common challenges of living the nomadic lifestyle (finding WIFI, electricity, parking etc.).
For the duration of our heated chat he was my very best friend.
Check out his rig, pretty much as badass of a machine as you can get. It’s called the Iveco Daily 4X4. 3Liter common rail diesel, 4X4 chassis, air suspension, crazy high ground clearance, fully insulated for winter use, super pimped out interior, solar, countless batteries and gadgets. Hubert is planning on visiting Mongolia and is awaiting his paperwork and visa. Jealous doesn’t even remotely describe how I felt when talking with him.
Planning on purchasing one? The prices START, with very few options at $250,000 (yes..quarter of a million dollars).
Amalia and I are taking our van and heading West to explore a few Bulgarian cities early Sunday morning, can’t wait to live in the van again….even if it’s just for a few days. If it wasn’t for the kitties we would go for a much longer trip but they’re still too fragile to take along.
A regular can-sized beer is about 60 cents, shots are 55 cents.
Also, starting June 1st..it’s open 24/7. Brilliant for those 6AM cravings.
Also… Amalia has been working on a HUGE European photo project that will more than likely be posted on Flickr. We have boxes full of photos that still need to be sorted out, organized and dated.
The project will take another month or so. Ohhhh…we’re also writing a book.
At 1100 calories per teaspoon, it’s an delicious treat.
I would strongly suggest picking up some extra shifts at the sandwich store to get rid of this embarrassment.
I also want THIS really bad. Need to pay off some bills…then I get…maybe next week.
Furniture is coming soon (Sofia trip), a projector and a Kyle-trancelaser. Raving, imminent.
Also, expect an old-school Trance mix..soon.
Didn’t have any vodka mix so Amalia made delicious jam-water. She froze a mixture of strawberry jam and water and turned it into ice cubes.
It’s true. The condo is just an in-between living solution and in a few years (about 2, probably more) we will start building a super custom house that’s going to break all the rules of house building. We will buy a small plot near the water (in Sunny Beach) and build a tiny home that’s mostly kitchen with more outside than inside space. One bedroom, one bathroom, cat area, a two person 80’s music dance floor, hot tub and a huge garden.
It’s going to be really fucking cool.
Completely off topic : there is a restaurant that recently failed and the space was converted into a supermarket. They have a surplus gas stove that we’re hoping to buy. It’s a beast of a unit, commercial/heavy duty…just a freakkin’ monster (you could broil a large male bear in the oven). If we get it, it will replace the living room couch in our loft….we want it, but we have zero space for it…wish me luck..
It will be the exact opposite of this.
Also, I haven’t…….nor will I ever setup my voicemail.
