Bulgaria: January 2018
First trip of 2018: Bulgaria! Almost the complete opposite from 2017's first trip, which was to tropical Myanmar, by contrast, Bulgaria was grey, cold, and overcast.
Explored both Sofia and Plovdiv, Bulgaria's capital and Bulgaria's second largest city, found ancient Roman ruins everywhere, hit a few restaurants, and tried not to freeze in the snow.
Day 1 - Whole day and more in airplanes and airports, as it's a two-stop journey on the cheap routings from this part of the world. Covers the morning of day 2, too.
Day 2 - Early afternoon arrival in Sofia along with plenty of exploring.
Day 3 - Exploring Plovdiv, Bulgaria's second largest city, in the morning, and more of Sofia in the evening.
Day 4 - Another long day of airport and airplanes on the way back.
