The rest of the Romans

Dea/ October 9, 2019/ Journeys/ 0 comments

Do we know today how to rest? Oh yes. We have the self-confidence of the modern generation, who knows best from all the previous ones how to relax. But not really we invented the warm water / that even the cold … /, and their alternation most skillfully used … the Romans! In their city baths centuries ago, the best

When salt weighed more than gold

Dea/ September 24, 2019/ Journeys/ 0 comments

Once upon a time, seven thousand years ago, Provadia / a town in northeastern Bulgaria / was the oldest salt extraction center in Europe. It is ironic that today this resource / still in stock / is not used for salt production! In fact, the raw material is used, but for the production of soda from another factory in the

Last care

Dea/ September 2, 2019/ Journeys/ 0 comments

I had a special trip that overturned many of my ideas about life. It happened in the summer of 2003, but has a history of a few months earlier. Phones weren’t that smart and popular back then, but ways to connect more publicly. There was a series of phonecards and one of them / which was “Monasteries”, but then I

111 years of the Cossack

Dea/ August 20, 2019/ Journeys/ 0 comments

111 years ago Don Cossacks stopped on the shore of Lake Varna and created their own village. They are expelled from their country for political reasons, excommunicated, and forced to seek a new home away from home. They keep the old faith (that’s why they call them Old Believers or Lipovans), and their second nickname comes from the fact that

Dea/ August 16, 2019/ Journeys/ 0 comments

The reed boat, which began construction on May 5 near Varna, is now ready to go. After being put on the water on August 1st, the crew had little time to make test sails – in Varna Lake and in the bay. The difficulties they faced in the practical part were the differences from the training model that the team

The Albanian Alps

Dea/ August 15, 2019/ Journeys/ 0 comments

So we entered Albania – with a whirlwind, by water, for three hours among the terrestrial beauties, until we reached the ground. The mountainous land, part of the Alps, to which her curse is called? /! / Greeted us in this way. In the following days, the same thing was repeated – and always to the max. The sun was

Finding India

Dea/ July 24, 2019/ Journeys/ 0 comments

For some India, it is a mystique, a magic, a distant dream. Such was Galya Raicheva from Varna, who for many years felt remotely connected with the spirit, her mantras sounded constantly in the house and the walls were covered with posters, drawings, pictures and souvenirs of deities and people – all connected to the visible and the invisible world

Since when is the sea connection with Egypt?

Dea/ June 17, 2019/ Journeys/ 21 comments

Adventurers from different countries and with different professions are on their way to demonstrate that this has been more in prehistory Rock drawings from Egypt and Mesopotamia suggest what the model of reed rafts from ancient times was. These drawings “come to life” today in a real boat with the help of two Indians of Bolivia (from the Aimara). They

To Survive in Bulgaria

Dea/ June 1, 2019/ Journeys/ 0 comments

I think this is the most suitable slogan for tourist advertising of our country. All other myths and legends – that we are hospitable and go directly to the “round folder” / understand the trash bin / only when a foreigner gets into our city transport and collapses with the notorious “hospitality” and intelligence of the Tandem Conductor / Driver!
