    Get Lost.

    Posted on April 2, 2014 by in blog

      Ask Vania she knows better than anyone, I am a stubborn donkey. Especially when I am right (or think I am right) I will never back down. Now in normal work/home life the downside of this is pretty harmless if a little annoying for Vania. In politics, and unfortunately I seem to be spending […]

      Winter is turning into Spring, the little buds of blossom are peaking out of their winter shells and here and there Daffodils and primroses are adding a lovely little dash of colour to the bleakness of the winter landscape. Added to these natural shocks of colour the bikers have also started appearing to brighten […]

    Curry, best of!

    Posted on March 23, 2014 by in blog

        10 years I trained as a classical French chef, I never did manage to get my C.A.P   but I can still take 3 days to make a nice gravy. I’ve forgotten how to bone a quail but I’m sure it would come back to me pretty quick, Risotto? I make the best […]

    Spring has sprung, and most people are thinking this is the end of the winter but strange things are happening up in those there hills! Yesterday was the first glimmer of a transformation happening to the snow pack. As the day time weather warms up but the night time temps keep low the snow starts […]

    Ladies of negotiable virtue

    Posted on March 18, 2014 by in blog

          Banskos relationship with ladies of the night has always been liberal to say the least. Poverty and prostitution have walked hand in hand since the dawn of time.  Simply put I don’t want it forced upon my guests, I don’t want my guests to have “trouble” in these places, what I really […]

    Negative equity?

    Posted on March 10, 2014 by in blog

    I used to think the slump in the Bansko property market was a natural rebalancing after the Bansko property bubble burst. However the regular complaints of estate agents this winter seem to indicate otherwise. A more sinister force is at work. The fixed price commission. As prices for Bansko Apartments plummeted in 2008 and 2009 […]

  • O brave new world,

    Posted on March 8, 2014 by in blog

    O wonder! How many goodly creatures are there here! How beauteous mankind is! O brave new world, That has such people in’t. William Shakespeare   When I look around Bansko the irony of Miranda’s words are not lost on me,  the hope and wonder that Bulgaria would be opening a new chapter in 2007 brought […]

    Extreme Parenting

    Posted on February 27, 2014 by in blog

      I’m pretty sure in the U.K. you would call it bad parenting but then most things in the UK are considered bad parenting. The tut tutting of disapproval follows Vania and I around every time we visit. Dylan doing laps of the plane climbing onto other passengers laps to play on their i pads […]

    Mid season?

    Posted on February 16, 2014 by in blog

      Those of you who have been following the snow conditions in Bansko over the last 8 weeks are well aware that “there is a lack of snow”, 2014 is the “worst season on record” or a “Disaster” and all those other bits of scaremongering that people throw about in bars to make themselves sound […]
