Breakdown in Bulgaria

Turkey calls its neighbour Bulgariastan
In summer tourists flock to coastal cities on the Black Sea
Like Cape Town without the mountains

Crossing the border into Bulgaria was completely hassle free due to my Schengen visa.

I encountered many cyclists on this route, all heading in the opposite direction.

Once again I’ve broken some spokes. But it was worse this time: 3 consecutive spokes. So I decided to stop riding.

Fortunately my b&b host drove me (at a price) to a decent bike mechanic and back.
