Day 9. Veliko Tarnovo to Svishtov

What we thought would an easy day was a bit harder than expected with a series of longish hills.

Today 82km. Total 648 km

Rob has been taking lots of pictures on his camera but we are struggling to get them transferred to the blog. So l have taken a few pictures on my phone.

This is the view from our balcony in Veliko Tarnovo.

The route today was through large scale farming country. This field of sun flowers was massive.

Most of today's route was over quite roads in good condition but one section of about 10 km was not so good.

Most days we stop at village for coffee. All have a square and most are in state of dilapidation.

We have seen the remnants of several storks nest but today the nest was occupied. Alas not a good picture.

Today we reached the Danube river. Tomorrow we cross by
ferry into Romania.

  1. Nice pictures but a shame about that bloke appearing in them and spoiling the shot. Weather still looks good: forecast here is 30 degrees next week.
