I had an awesome weekend with my awesome lady in the town of Koprivshtitsa, Bulgaria. It’s a place of a lot of history where the movement to Bulgarian freedom began, and being the history nut that I am, it was awesome to learn about some of the country’s important figures, from soldiers to diplomats to poets. On top of that, I had two awesome meals that warrant rave review.
First was at a restaurant/hotel called Chuchura, where I ordered a plate of roasted pork steak, bacon, mushrooms, tomatoes, peppers, and onions. What I got was this giant skillet of deliciousness! Being the husky gent that I am, I naturally finished my skillet, and plucked a little from my love’s as well.
Second was breakfast at Boncho’s House, the guest house we stayed at. The room itself was worth it, but the complimentary breakfast of banitsa (a traditional Bulgarian flaky pastry filled with varying foods, in this case sirene, which is the local equivalent to feta) and a crepe with freshly picked and made raspberry jam was one of the best I’ve had anywhere.
All in all, the awesome weekend has me ready to tackle the coming weeks. More updates to come soon, so keep checking in and keep on keepin’ on!
