Return to Bulgaria

London Gatwick Airport, Sofia and Veliko Tarnovo

View Teaching and Travelling Abroad on 3Traveller's travel map.

Another set of goodbyes, a smooth train journey to Gatwick in the middle of the night and a long, sleepless few hours in the terminal waiting area before I could go through security and bag checks. In comparison to my journey through here in September, at least this time I only had hand luggage so avoided the potentially long queues at check-in and could go straight through to bag x-ray and then duty-free. No grumpy x-ray staff this time.

I managed to doze off for a while on the plane but still felt very sleep-deprived on arrival in Sofia. The taxi journey to the central bus station was uneventful and this time I had no problems getting a ticket for the next bus to Veliko Tarnovo. I dozed some more on the bus. There was snow around in Sofia and this continued all the way into Veliko Tarnovo.

I've met the new teacher, who is living in the flat above mine. She seems really nice. Term starts tomorrow!
