A chronicle of Sharon and Eric's new life in Bulgaria.

Hi Ann

Yes we are renting and are paying 300 leva per month for a village house, plus bills and of course the wood for the winter. We have not registered with a doctor yet but there is one in Yambol that speaks perfect English. Erics meds cost him 1.14 leva for the month, they were around 9 lira in Turkey.

Here are some websites to look at.

Elhovo News


This site is really good for all things Bulgarian.

Have you registered with a doctor and how much do you pay for medication if your taking any? Thinking of giving it a try there myself if I can get all the info. Any good sites to look at?

Shirleys Bar, Dobrich (nr Elhovo-Yambol) Bulgaria
Due to unforseen circumstances, we will be closing as of this week. Day yet to be fully decided , however today will be our last Sunday trading. We are open from 4pm today for Sunday lunches. Many thanks to all our valued customers and friends who have supported us.

I hope they are both OK :cry:

Oh dear. Not the Bulgarian mafia pushing in I hope!

Bulgarian Mafia in a tiny little village Keith!!! don't be mad lol. No they are both doing well and no one has muscled them out. They are just persuing other interests. We have been this evening for their last day of trading and they are both very chilled and happy.

Steve, please say hi to Ozzy the next time you are over.

We are going to the village of Kalchevo 10 minutes outside Yambol. It has all happened very sudden but had a great offer for rental and a wee job so we are going to give it a go. The place also has a huge workshop for Eric to make his stuff and lock up all his tools. I will tell more when I get all the details. We love it here in Dobrich but it will good being so close to Yambol as it is a big town and there is loads to do. Looking forward to it all. Thanks for asking Glynn. x
