      I’m not quite as evangelical as you are but I do agree with promoting Bulgaria as a REAL tourist destination. The link above takes you into my(as yet unfinished) Varna page on VirtualTourist.com and you should have a look at my other Bulgarian pages there. You might enjoy (or not) my comments on Sofia.

      If there is anything in my VT pages you would like to quote please feel absolutely free to do so (just mention my name as the source).

      Nice site and I’m with you all the way. Heading back to Bulgaria in January :-)))

        Hi John,
        It’s funny you say I’m evngelical:) I just think its a pity to come to Bulgaria and not see its pretty side. I read your virtual tourist site http://members.virtualtourist.com/m/9d51c/5c7c9/. I read the comments about Sofia and I do agree with most of them (whether I like it or not:). I am sure many people will find the info on your site very useful. But its even more useful to us, Bulgarians.
        I hope you have a better experience when you come in January!

        Hey Lance,
        Thank you for the good words. I needed some kind of comments, preferably positive:)
        I checked your blog about Bansko http://banskoblog.com/. It was high time someone made a good informative blog about Bulgarias most popular ski resort.
