When a permanent nomad like Earl from Wandering Earl.com, who has traveled the world non-stop since 1999 announces that “Bulgaria happens to be near the top of my list [as a best value destination] (maybe even at the very top) after my recent experiences” there isn’t much left to do but to believe him.
Click on the link above to read about his very comfortable, and from the looks of it, quite enjoyable five nights/ six days stay in Veliko Tarnovo that ended up costing him mere $210 USD!!! I don’t know about you, but I know of decent number of New York City restaurants where a meal for two with drinks and desert could easily surpass Earl’s expenditures at this destination. And while he does acknowledges that there are a number of other countries that offer such good value for your money, it was the Bulgarian hospitality or as he puts it “the fact that the Bulgarian people are extremely warm and welcoming towards foreigners just increases its attractiveness as a travel destination (speaking of attractiveness, Bulgarians have to be some of the most attractive people on the planet!)” pushes Bulgaria to the top of his “Best Value Destination” list.
Thank you for your kind words Earl and we look forward to your return to Bulgaria! I hope it falls on a day like today or tomorrow when Free Sofia Tour is once again greeting everyone arriving at Sofia airport and gifting them with the famous Bulgarian rose to welcome them to our country! (just another example of Bulgarian hospitality at work)
