On the Wednesday we decided to visit Varna and the seaside town of Obzor.
As Ed and I had already been to the older of the two malls, we headed for the Grand Mall, which opened in 2011. This place has everything for the shopaholic with over 220 stores, including Esprit, Zara, H&M and from September 2015…………… NEXT! Yes, NEXT is coming to Varna🎉👏😍. I was one happy bunny, when I saw the signs !! Wonder if my next card will be valid??
After we had had enough of wandering round the numerous international, designer shops we decided to head for Obzor and show Ben the Black Sea coast. In the summer many towns along the coast are vibrant and full of life, hosting thousands of visitors, in winter however they are ghost towns.
When we arrived in Obzor only one restaurant was open! We wandered down to the beach, where I took some photos.
We headed back up the coast and stopped off on one of the side streets in Varna and went to explore the boutiques lining the main road. I found a very “me” denim dress, with an uneven hem and a hood. Tried the medium as the small looked incredibly small, nope didn’t fit 😠 turns out I’m a “large” in Bulgaria!! 😥 Ah well, it had to happen one day, I suppose, hehe.
