Welcome to my blog on learning Bulgarian, Bulgaria and the Bulgarians. I arrived for the first time in Bulgaria in 2005 as a boy in my early twenties, alone and determined to crack the language. I've kept a diary ever since and am now uploading a selection of those diary entries right up until the present day (2018). Bulgaria is a country that I would swap with no other and Bulgarians are a people that I love living amongst and spending time with. I am proud that my young children are now living and growing up in Bulgaria and are also speaking Bulgarian. I have lived most of my adult life in Bulgaria and, as life does everywhere, it throws up lots of challenges and highs and lows. I hope you enjoy! Благодаря!:) "
