Flag of Bulgaria  , Shumen,
Wednesday, July 28, 2010

Hi Everyone,

We arrived in Shumen on Tuesday after our longest day in the saddle so far.  The roads here in Bulgaria are challenging to say the least - a great many potholes are taking their toll on our bikes and our supply of spare inner tubes.

We allowed oursleves a rest day in Shumen today (Wednesday).  A lie-in was a wonderful luxury that we all enjoyed. Much of the rest of the day was spent doing much needed bike maintenance - fortunately we found a friendly bike shop to help us!

Tomorrow, Thursday we hope to reach or get very close to the Romanian border.  We are all well and thoroughly enjoying our great adventure.

Best wishes to everyone from

Chris, Alex, Bob, Dave and Jay
