Canakkale to Plovdid, Bulgaria

Last night we dined at a lovely restaurant overlooking the water and what better place with a glass of wine in hand to view the sunset.IMG_6975IMG_6976IMG_6979

Today was the day we left Turkey and crossed the border into Bulgaria. Ian and I took Vulcan across to Gallipoli on the ferry early in the morning so that we could get some photos of her at Anzac Cove.


One photo we took of Vulcan showed the rugged land that the soldiers encountered. While Ian was very interested in the terrain, I was more interested in the graves of the fallen.IMG_7016

We then continued to the border which  went very smoothly…both leaving Turkey and entering Bulgaria.

Lunch was a picnic lunch by the roadside and we reached our hotel early evening.

A walk around town, dinner and for those appreciating July 4…there were even fireworks. The waiter however said it had nothing to do with July 4th!IMG_7033IMG_7040

Wine and more architecture

Wine and More Wine – OleBilbao OLD and NEW Monday dawned sunny and warm and we headed down to the Guggenheim Museum, even though it is closed we wanted to relish the slick titanium skin, contrasted against the smooth pale limestone blocks. Everything glistened in the bright morning sun, reflections of the curved surfaces bounced off the water surrounding the metal walls and the metallic sculptures in the forecourts around the Guggenheim. Did you know that every surface in the building is curved and there are no straight lines thus emphasising the organic flowing lines of this magnificent Frank Gehry masterpiece Tomorrow we’ll visit this amazing museum along with our Silk Road companions Pat and David who we are travelling with around Spain and Portugal in our trusty MGs. Hop on and off buses have always been a favourite and quick way of acquainting ourselves with a city. We cruised around the narrow streets enjoying the views from the top deck. We were diverted by police a few times into the back streets because of a rally of thousands of people marching along the main thoroughfare of the city. Red, white and Green flags and banners waving, fire crackers exploding, releasing clouds of smoke. How We hopped off a The Mercado de la Ribera one of the largest fresh food markets in Europe and we arrived just in time for some Pintxos which we enjoyed with a beer and Sangria. So many delicious sweet and savoury munchies to choose from – what a treat!
