Although we stayed primarily in Marmaris, Turkey, we did see some other sites along the way.  You are even able to enjoy it from the comfort of your home, rather than from the cramped seating of a bus.

My friend was here to visit me over Easter and she wrote about my village on her site.  She also has some pictures of Kochan on her site.  It's found in the "Muslim village/Easter" album.  You can also see some pictures from my trip to Lom ("Orphans Day Out" and "Baseball Game: USA")

I've provided some links that will help you see Prague as a whole, rather than a step by step tour.  Enjoy exploring this beautiful city.

Since returning from Greece, I've decided to make a virtual tour so that you get a better idea of what I saw while there.  It should be a warm and fun "trip" for you all!






Rousse, Bulgaria's prettiest city.  At least my opinion is that of the authors.  Check out why he (and I) make this statement.

During one of my visits to a neighboring village, I had the opportunity to see a wolf, recently killed.  After reading the news article, I find that wolves are even more common in Bulgaria!  Yikes!

Bansko is a happening ski resort town that I get the priviledge of visiting quite frequently, as it's only two hours from my village.  Check it out here!


German traditions have spread throughout the world.  You may be surprised at where "our" traditions originated.

Hopefully, I have provided a link to an interactive map of Bulgaria.  The red star is Kochan, the village in which I live in.

The BTV news network has a Bulgarian website.  I'm not sure if you will be able to read it (first because it will be in Bulgarian, but next because of an American connection).  Anyway, I hope you get to see the picture they have of Kochan, which happens to lead to the school and the road to my house.  Here's the link. :)
