In Bulgaria the train station signs are almost hidden, if non-existent, and those that are visible are in Cyrillic. It was a full minute before I realized that I was at my stop. Then came the search for a minibus to take me to Veliko Turnovo.
Once I arrived in town, and walked to the Hiker's Hostel, I grabbed a beer and joined in a card game with two Aussies and a Brit. The Aussies, two blondes girls from Melbourne, showed me once again that Aussies bring the good times, and it's often accompanied by alcohol--lots of it. We played a few rounds of Trumps, watched a nightly light show that highlights the Tsarevets, a fortress complex that is the town's main draw, and headed into town to Pepy's Bar. A couple blue drinks, brown drinks, and "African Blowjob" shots later we were at the Barcardi Club for a little dancing. These girls were wild, loud, and heavy drinkers, kind of like female versions of the typical Aussie male tourist. Even so, they were really fun, and the night ended with us at our hostel, playing music at a table on the deck.
