|Our car is not this small. But almost.|
In a few days we’re loading up the car and driving to Bulgaria!
We’ve packed some essentials to take with us: two boxes of kitchen gear; two suitcases of clothes; computer; bedding and towels; some books (Bulgarian and DIY books!); and our trusty satnav. It’s going to be a squeeze fitting it all in our not-so-roomy Ford Puma, and I’m a bit worried about weight. But fingers crossed we, and our possessions, will make it there fine. The rest of our stuff, which is still in storage, will follow in a few months once the house is in a fitter state.
Now for the fun stuff: our route. We’re heading off from Dover early Friday morning and spending Friday night in Germany with family. Then we leave Germany early on Saturday morning and make the 9-hour trek down to Venice. We’re spending two nights in Venice - which is very exciting as we’ve never been to Italy before. Then, on Monday evening we get the ferry from Venice to Igoumnitsa in Greece – a full 24-hour ferry ride! Tuesday night will be spent in Thessaloniki in Northern Greece. Finally, on Wednesday we’ll make the 4-hour drive up into Bulgaria and to our house.
We’re certainly taking the scenic route but it should be a fun trip. Speak to you when we get there!
