Why am I still Here?

I take it if you are reading this that as far as you are concered the world did't end on 21 May, and you haven't been raptured. Well so you don't feel bad niether have I (although being agnostic I was doomed to stay whatever). As well as the loonies predicting the end of the world this week I have been thinking about the reason that I am here (in Bulgaria rather the more philosophical question). I have been asked many times why I have chosen to up sticks and move to Bulgaria.

There is no one single answer. Although having recieved a very nice email from "Tony in India" this week, I would like to borrow a phrase from him. "one is himself the complete master about the expenses one wants to bear" which pretty much sums up why I have moved to Bulgaria. Out here if all you want is all that you need (think about that for a bit), then you can happily get by on 75 Euros a month.

In fact as that is the current rate of the old age pension in Bulgaria, there are many people doing just that, and they still have smiles on there faces!

If you want to move to 'rural' Bulgaria and integrate with the local community, then you have to live as they do. I can confirm that it is the best way of making true friends whilst living abroad. If you want to just come and live like an "ExPat" and have your UK lifestyle in better weather conditions please stay away from me!

Not sure what brought that on, probably the email from Tony - So thanks.

PS Don't buy Turkey chicks they are more hassle than new born babies!
