I am planning a trip to Bulgaria this April and have been doing a lot of research on the subject.
One of the difficulties I am having is deciding my route, because it is difficult to find information in English on buses and trains. Would you recommend: Sofia -> Plovdiv -> Veliko Turnovo -> Burgas/Nessebur/Burgas -> Kazanluk or Sofia -> Plovdiv -> Burgas/Nessebar/Burgas -> Kazanluk ->
Veliko Turnovo -> Sofia?
I very much want a trip over the mountains and not on the plains. Train or bus - and when, for which leg?
I have lots more questions :-) but I`ll stop here for now. If you can make any other suggestions I am open to all ideas and advice.
FYI - I am a mature woman travelling solo. No car, only public transportation. I am also a budget traveller and wondering about places to stay. I will be in each city for at least 3 nights. I have always used hostels (private room), but I smoke and they now do not permit smoking in hostels any longer :-<(
Looking forward to hearing from you.
Wishing all enjoyable and successful travelling.
