PostSubject: Fact finding mission   Wed Jan 25, 2012 12:02 am

First topic message reminder :

Hello,
After reading the good advice that we have already received on this forum our next step must be to come and have a look around. We understand and expect the 'rural' aspects that we will find as we have both traveled extensively in the past, we know it won't be like England.
It looks likely that my wife Nik will be coming out to 'check out' possible villages/areas within the next couple of months. Manchester is our nearest major airport so she will likely fly to Sofia then travel onwards to the area that we are most interested in (which we don't know yet..!!!). Are travel links good from Sofia? Are there any areas that aren't well served? Would it be worth hiring a car? Err....oh, thats it for now - drinky time.....

Cheers, Dave.

Good luck with your trip. I would definately hire a car to view in the villages and a sat nav or bulgarian map is a must. We have a truck sat nav which covers all of bulgaria in detail including the villages. Bought :Good luck:boff ebay for 55 pounds if your looking for one and a local map from the first petrol station we came to when we first arrived in bulgaria.

There are buses and trains from Sofia to ruse. We caught the train for 31levs each a couple of weeks ago. I would definately hire a car if you are interested in houses in the villages round ruse because the buses go near the villages but not into them all and it can be quite a long walk to where you want to be. Plus you'll save time as the buses don't run that often so you'll be able to see more.
If you do decide to hire a car make sure you go round it with the agent and photograph any scratches n marks etc that are on it, before you set off. Most of the companies are ok but one or two will try and charge you for damage already done. I would recommend you go with one of the cheaper companies that has older cars if you havent driven in bulgaria before, because the pot holes can sneak up on you and the companies with the older cars seem to be more forgiving about the odd scratch.
Hope you have a fantastic trip and find what you are looking for. s
