The 365: Communist Tour of Sofia | Free Sofia Tour

The 365: Communist Tour of Sofia

This year the 365 Association, which stands behind the Free Tours of Sofia and Plovdiv, is launching two new and exciting projects: the 365: Communist Tour (link for the tour) and Culture Tour (link for the tour).

This lovely French girl put herself into the great challenge to walk around the world in 10 years. She’s planning to pass a total of 70 000km only on foot. Caroline Moireaux is a quality engineer from a small French town. She got caught up with the idea of going around the world when she found on Internet that 2 guys did Asia for one year walking. Then the preparation started – one year of coming up with the route, arranging visas, finding the necessary equipment, that had to be cheap, strong and light, and telling friends and family. The world tour started with six more people at the beginning but they […]
