Following months of glourious sunshine, Bulgaria is blessed with a real winter, just as in the song, the snow really is “deep and crisp and even”.
Fortunately, village life is geared for the climate, and houses are kept warm with wood fired heating and our trusty Lada’s allow us to get around.
The ski resort of Unza is just 50km away – but there is lots of winter fun to be found nearby.
Our local waterfall, one of our favourite swimming places, is transformed in the winter.
But sometimes its enough just to watch the garden being transformed into a winter wonderland.
