Hotel Majestic. This is a good hotel. Although it is a very big hotel.

Before my daughter was going on her teaching practice we would like to have a short vacation. So we had to choose. Difficult, there are a lot of places we would like to see. On the internet we saw Bulgaria, that was not the first thing that crossed our mind, but by reading what we could do overthere we decided to go to Bulgaria. 

We landed in Burgas, one of the main cities in Bulgaria. We thought this would be a big airport, but it was very small. At the moment we came in the building it was not a friendly welcome. Unfriendly people! Wel we hoped the rest was better. We had to drive about 30 minutes before we were in our hotel. We stayed in hotel Majestic in Sunny Beach. During the busdrive i saw a lot of things i didn't want to see on my holliday.

Vieuw from our Hotel to the black sea
A lot of neonlight in a cheap way. Like the strip in Albufeira. And i tried to avoid that!. Ok, we were lucky our hotel was far enough away from the strip. In fact on the end of sunny beach. No problem at all!!! The next day we had to gather for a meeting from the touroperator. We were collected by a bus and drove rather far. We gathered at the Heineken house, the hostess kept her little chat about Bulgaria. She told us, that if a Bulgarian is insecure he would walk away and does not speak to you anymore. I really thought this was a joke, but it was reallity! They are not very helpfull, perhaps they are not able to do so. The hostess finished her talk and said goodbye. Oh, very nice where is the bus?  No bus at all. Walk to your hotel! Lol. This was too far!! She must be joking, but no it was for real! Than we diceded to go to Nessebar, and we took the bus.
The strip in Sunny Beach. A lot of shops. Not very special. Lot of tourists
It was very warm and nessebar is very touristic. All the real nice houses are souvenir shops. If you like to take beautifull pictures keep your camera high and just picture the upperfloor from the building! There was something we did not like about Nessebar, and i am going to tell you anyway. It is not nice, but i hope you will read this.

In Nessebar there are a lot of shops which claim to sell antiques. The most things are NOT antiques! But that is not my main problem. They sell a lot of things referring to the second world war. Telling you that it is authentique. But in fact it is new, and manipulate to look old. They sell watches with pictures from Hitler on it, they sell swastika buckles and little statues of Hitler. It is a pitty it happens overthere. So i have had it with Nessebar. The buildings are beautiful but that's it!

We planned 2 excursions, one to the inland, and one to Turkey.
