– “So, where do you go next?”
– “Oh, we don’t know yet… it’s a destination anywhere.”
– “And how did you decide to come to Sofia?”
– “We didn’t really decide that. It’s complicated.”
– “You took a blind booking?”
– “Not quite. It’s a long story…”
It’s not on purpose that I constantly write about how our guests decided to come to Sofia. I just happen to meet people with curious travel planning.
This is a similar story. A brother and sister from Hamburg, Germany (forget about all your prejudices – those Germans are sometimes much more spontaneous and unpredictable than you can imagine), decided to travel somewhere around Europe. But they wanted to leave the exact destination to destiny. So they packed their things, went to the highway and stretched their thumbs. The first driver that stopped was a Bulgarian, who had just bought a new car for his boss and was driving from Hamburg to Sofia. The driver could speak neither German, nor English. Still they jumped in the car and after two days of using body language and learning Bulgarian – here they are in Sofia. No wonder that the boy approached me with “Dobyr vecher” (Good evening) at the beginning of the tour 🙂
“Once we are here, we would like to take some time to look around, go to the mountain, then maybe to the beach.”
“I like Sofia very much”, the boy said.
The only disappointment for them seemed to be the power of globalization – they were both surprised by the high number of German brands present in Sofia.
