Balčik, Bulgaria

Date 08-1994. Me at the Botanic gardens of the Romanian queen Marija, a garden with more than 3,000 species of plants. Queen Mary had this villa or small castle built at the sea to visit her Turkish lover. Romantic? Queen Marija was in her sixties and her lover Hasan twenty years. She Catholic, and he moslim.

Greetings Erik

God picture, Erik, you have been visiting my country... a long time ago. Now you are as well so young now....The human does not change really in the time, he receives only more experience and wisdom...

You have aged very gracefully **Erik* ;)! What a romantic story!

Hi Tanya yes I did. It was perhaps one of my most impressive trips I ever made. We went by car, in those days there was the war in Yugoslavia so we had to travel trough Romania (in Yugoslavia the car wasn't insured). At the border of Romania we had to wait 1,5 day to get on the ferry to Bulgaria. (We where robbed by gypsies while waiting there). In a couple of weeks we travelled from West to East Bulgaria. From the coast we travelled North and got back home trough Romania, Slovenia, Czech Republic and Germany.

Искрено, Greetings Erik

Hello Tanya and Sam, thanks ..I feel still the same (Like when I was younger) just a bit wiser perhaps But people remind me all the time I'm older now (and should behave like that). Guess the little boy in me is still alive.

Oh Erik you have really opened up a can of worms here! In response to that link, I think it is simple, if you are a single guy with no responsibilities, sure play the fool until your hearts content! but when you are graced with kids you are accountable for, you have a moral obligation to them to perhaps play a little less the fool. But, as you are single, Hey! you continue to be that that same little boy and don't let anyone tell you otherwise!! Sam

Words of wisdom Sam you couldn't be more right!

Thanks Erik
