Few days ago I was on a business trip near Varna, Bulgaria. After I have finished my work I went to the hotel and all and all it was just a regular night. Or maybe almost regular… After all I had to go and eat something, since in the hotel I had wide selection of Turkish meals, which I didn’t want. So as every normal guy would do in a situation like this i went for a drive in the city center. I decided to enter a few places, but since it was 31.10 ( Halloween ) everything was reserved so I decided to go for the fast-food option: doner! But where ?? It was my first time in Varna so naturally I had absolute no idea where to go to get one … (small EUREKA moment) Foursquare ! I checked some places and I set the address on my GPS. After about 15 minutes and 2 km wasted in search of parking place I managed to find one and to set on foot for the final destination. So far so good 🙂 BUT ! There wasn’t such place and after double checking the address I saw a small misplacement on the Foursquare map and address … the actual place was on the other side of the city 🙂 So i decided to just go for a walk and find something to eat, which was in fact rather difficult, having in mind it was Halloween. With this much people almost every place was running out of options but I managed to find one, bought what I wanted and started the route back to the car, thanks to my trusty GPS, since I had no idea where it actually was :).
On the next day I headed back home but before the journey I took the more scenic road through some small seaside resorts. And oh my they were deserted. To be hones this was my first time on the seaside in this time of the year and the one thing that is still in my head is how empty and honestly scary were those places. All of the small shops – closed, the pharmacies – closed, cafes – closed … Everything looked like time has ceased to exist. The only good thing was how easy it was to park near the beach, since there was no one else there. The minute I stepped on the sand of the deserted beach I saw the boat just sitting there all by itself, slightly tilted to the right, and again with no sign of life whatsoever. I don’t know if it’s the best picture of a lonely boat on the beach or the worst, but for me it’s memory of a very special moment. Fortunately I like the results and how it turned out and in the near future I think I’ll make some kind of big print – like those metal prints that the guys at Adorama.com are offering, to hang it on a wall.
