We are so excited to be in Bulgaria. a European country so rich in history and culture. Prehistoric cultures started developing Bulgaria during the Neolithic period. Can't wait to see the architecture, hear their music and taste the food!
It was a great first morning. We discovered a traditional breakfast dish of Bulgarian Fried dough, or Mekitsi. A delicious and decadent way to start the day in this beautiful country.
