Burgas in Bulgaria 2014

Burgas in Bulgaria 2014 Spring.

Looking at going down there next year. As I've just come back from one of my trip's with in the last week. Rent a flat for two week and take that amount of time to go and come back. Two sharing will make cheap hotel's cheaper. But I'm not apposed to strapping a tent on the back of the bike.

I rode from Switzerland to Burgas (then onwards to Turkey) a couple of years ago. I spent 4 days in Burgas and found it to be a very pleasant and well-kept city.

I made a post here in the forum about my experience (generally quite good) of riding through Romania - here is a link to it: Notes from a September 2011 ride through Romania, Bulgaria, Turkey, and Greece.

I don't think I would feel comfortable camping out in Romania, though. There are a lot of people who are not doing so well (in other words, they have empty bellies), and that creates security concerns. There is also quite a problem with feral dogs in Romania, particularly in the cities. Bulgaria did not appear to me to suffer from either of these problems, and Burgas itself looked like a nice, prosperous, up-and-coming city.
