The last place I visited on my holiday (which was nearly a month ago now, scary!) was Nesebar in Bulgaria. I had no idea how nice Bulgaria was. I think I may have let the negative press about Romanian and Bulgarian immigrants in Britain subconsciously get to me. I can think of no other reason why I would think badly about it, apart from meeting a Bulgarian guy in Leiden who liked a drink and spent one night telling me how shit all the tourist areas were. But I suppose most people who live in countries think the areas surrounded by tourists are a bit shit.
It was definitely a good place to spend the last day of the holidays, it was quiet for the weekend and we just spent a few hours walking around the cobbled streets and stopped to have a quiet beer at a cafe in a square. Nesebar is a UNESCO heritage site and ancient town, so there were plenty of ruins and churches to explore too.
I'm not too sure I would have spent much time at the beach like everyone else seemed to be doing though - far too much seaweed and a hell of a lot of scary jellyfish.
