Drum Roll Please

Ta Da! I've just realised this is my 250th blog post! Doesn't time fly quickly when you're having fun? or at least it does when you're prone to waffling on in a blog.

Admittedly I haven't been blogging as much lately but there's only so many times you can write about the weather (oh and we've had more snow overnight!). But soon things will change, I'll be able to get outside more often and fingers crossed I may even be wearing my shorts in the next 6 weeks and can pack the winter wear away for at least 6 months.

There will be an influx of people to Bulgaria over the next few months, holidaymakers, sightseers and those looking to buy property. Property prices are still cheap and I'm always being asked to sell property in the village for the locals. Just this morning a woman stopped me and asked if I knew anyone looking for a nice house. 

There are literally thousands of houses and plots of land for sale in Bulgaria and almost as many estate agents too. It's really confusing and can be trying buying property here, especially as anyone can be an estate agent and there is no governing or regulating body controlling estate agents. Plus properties can be advertised with as many agents as the owner wants and not always at the same price.

Hopefully we'll get a bit more renovation work done this year and have time to sit back and enjoy life. I'm already looking forward to having another pig roast, spending evenings sat outside chatting and having a dip in the pool when it's really hot. But before all of that there's the yearly house taxes to pay, the company accounts to be submitted and a load of other things that can't be put off until another time.


  1. Hiya, Love your blog. Really interesting to read as My Mum left me and my brothers a property in the Rhodope mountains. Ive never been over there but planning a visit for this year. My Mum loved Bulgaria x

  2. Hello and thanks, I'm glad you've enjoyed reading my blog and hope you'll continue to do so.

    Bulgaria really is a beautiful country and I'm sure you will enjoy your visit.
