Where to spend an anniversary? How about Bulgaria?
Sunday, June 09, 2013
Never would have predicted this location way back in June 1967. At that point I had never ventured far from Brooklyn.
Here we are on our Danube cruise on our way from Vienna to the Black Sea.
On June 3rd, our 46th anniversary, our port of call was in Bulgaria which was a surprisingly lovely stop. We were a bit apprehensive since we don’t have a great record with anniversaries. I wrote about it here.
On our wedding day the priest forgot to show up and that set the tone for many June 3rds to follow.
If you keep up on the news from Europe, we were just ahead of the floods on the Danube and hadn’t booked the post cruise excursion in Istanbul (which had to be cancelled because of the violence). So this anniversary will be recorded as one of the good ones.
We were traveling with friends we have known for exactly 50 years so it was sort of a double anniversary celebration.
Now back in the USA I’ve got some major jet lag. It was an 11 hr flight home (plus a 2 hr layover in Vienna) and a 4 hr drive after that.
I’m 4 lbs heavier since when on vacation I always experience the local food, beer, wine and culture. No regrets! I also ran a few miles in 6 of the 7 countries we visited. More on all this in future blogs.
Now to unpack, get back to normal and catch up on SP.
