A home is not a mere transient shelter: its essence lies in its permanence,
in its capacity for accretion and
solidification, in its quality of
representing, in all its details,
the personalities of the people who
live in it.
And paradise it is, for those who
enjoy the adventures of early morning
trips to buy bread, or lugging bottles
of water down from the better equipped
house up the hill. This small piece
of utopia is not only the home of
this adventurous Bulgarian, all of
his relations and nine cats it's
also a nature. It's called Iankowo
and is frequented by passing hikers
en route to Varna.
For many who live in colder or more
crowded climes, the idea of owning
property in Bulgariagetaway might
exist only as a dream, with the concept
of making such property a personal
residence completely unfathomable.
