Hi All, I joined this forum last week and so am still a newbie. I am living near Lom in the north-west corner of Bulgaria and wonder if there are any other expats in this area. My village is called Rasovo and is charming, very rural and with a very friendly population, so I love it here. It would just be nice to occasionally have a joke with someone who understands the implications of the humour. I am learning the language but finding it difficult, still, I will struggle on. Be good to hear from anyone already here, or would like to come to this very unspoilt region.

Hi Dianaslv, Well I`m not in the area, but I do live in a friendly place that is different than which I grew up in. If you ever miss the British humour I can always send you jokes, or funnies! I`m coming to Bulgaria next month to sample some fab food ect with some friends. Can`t wait! Love going to new places and meeting new people. Even just for a day....

Hi Yogi, Thanks for the reply. Where abouts are you going? Hope you have a good time. My brother emails me lots of jokes it is really the spoken humour I miss. Feel free if you have any really good ones, Diana

We are going to Drive up from Thessaloniki Greece, to Sadanski in Bulgaria, its just across the boarder from us! We plan to get some early christmas shopping done have a few drinks, something to eat and then more shopping. I`ll be coming up with some people from my web site here in Thess, and hope to make a reall day of it. So any suggestions would be good!

Hi,
Also a newbie to this site. Currently living and working in Lagos, Nigeria and thinking about retiring to some place where my pension will go much further. Friends from Bulgaria say that is the place to go. Anyone have comments or suggestions.

Hi thanks for the reply, living in Bulgaria is the place to make your pension go further, one of my reasons for coming here was that in England I would be like thousends of other pensioners struggling along, here I can live in relative comfort, and it is so lovely, which is a bonus.

Hey Diana - thanks for your information on the visa process. I'm working on getting my visa D and will be in Bulgaria within the next year (I hope). Perhaps one day we'll meet in Bulgaria;)
