Our time here in Bulgaria has been a very different journey than we are used to. We have had a few extra days in both Sofia and here in Plovdiv than we usually allow in a city and these places are very small in comparison to other cities. Plovdiv has a rich history as a passage for the Ottoman and Roman Empires. In the middle of the Main Street there is ancient roman amphitheater ruins and amazing old building facades. We have had a kebab a day in preparation for Turkey and enjoyed taking our time exploring both the new and old city. The weather has warmed up, we have gone out without scarves for the first time in 2 months and are very excited to get to Turkey tomorrow after a long evening bus trip.
