From the photo above you can see we are packing for Bulgaria, our coach leaves tomorrow at 4:30pm. We arrive at the airport in London around midnight and fly at 8am on Saturday (why such a long journey just to catch a flight? Well we live in the South West where there’s no such thing as airports or civilized things, much like Wales there is only sheep and Dartmoor ponies).
I actually quite enjoy this part of the trip because we purchase loads of snacks to take on the journey with us and it gives us plenty of time to engage in deep conversations (or sleep in strange places like the airport floor). The biggest problem I have with travel is choosing what books to take with me, this time we are only going to Bulgaria for a week and yet I have six books piled with my clothes, three of which are poetry books and rather slim, the other three are magical realist novels and rather chunky.
Even though this holiday is going to be a short one, I very much need the rest and so I am not even going to take my note book which is essentially my work book full of lists of things I need to work on. I don’t want to see it whilst I’m at my mom’s because if I do I’ll end up writing an article (for example) instead of simply winding down, doing yoga in nature and reading or writing for leisure. Which is another reason for the six books.
The weather here in the UK has been divine, we’ve had a beautiful heat wave and I’ve spent a good few afternoons sat in our back garden reading and soaking up the sun. Today the forecast is changing, dark clouds are whirling in and thunderstorms are predicted. This is actually perfect timing for us, whilst the UK experiences a very wet weather system, Bulgaria’s weather is glorious! So I can not wait to relax by the pool and take leisurely strolls in my summer dresses down the cobbled streets of Veliko Tarnovo.
