Thumbs up Thank You!

Greatings from Germany,

I also want to say many thanks for this nice meeting in Bulgaria!!!
I really enjoyed staying in the Moto Camp in Idilevo:
great presentation of journeys, lots of interesting people to talk to, good accommodation and compliments to the kitchen. ;-)

Analoli was our tourguide one day.The weather and a small problem on his bike, couldn`t stop him to show us some nice streets and spots arround Idilevo. Thank You Anatoli! Good job!

After the meating, I stayed there some days more and had later a crash with my bike (only 70km away from idilevo).
I am verry happy, because i am not serious injured.
Sam from canada has made some pics on his blog:
Journal - 2010

At this moment, it was a really good feeling to have friends arround the corner. Many thanks to Polly, Doug and Ivo !!! Because many thinks had to be arranged: talking to the police and making (and checking) some papers, carrying the bike back to idilevo, me to short visit to hospital, talking to the insurance-company, Anita takes care about my back, Andrew brought me later to the airport, and and ... Nice !!! I felt like home.

I am sure i will go back to idilevo in the future.
May be on my next trip to the black sea (turkey).

So ... if you traveling to bulgaria,
I can highly recommend the Moto Camp: http://motosapiens.org

Best wishes to all of you!
See you on the next meeting, when my bike is ready again.

I wish we could've made it. Maybe next year, it looks amazing. Also, I demand naked women. I've been to Bulgaria. A couple of times. I know they have naked women. Now where are they?!

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love.
