We left at 7.30am with hopes of reaching Varna shortly after midday. With rolling hills and some fantastic high speed descents we were flying. At one stage I hit over 70kph. This is pretty fast when you have 4 pannier bags strapped to your bike. As long as you don't hit a big bump in the road, you'll be right.
At stages the road was single lane and this is always a concern for me. Close shaves is something I don't like when riding. We stopped a couple of times up each climb to regroup and take another drink. We had our morning tea stop in a little village with coffee and a roll. We were in no hurry today and it showed. Any time we got to take a break, take a photo, buy some fruit, we'd take it.
Now for the accommodation. Maurice had a name of a hotel called the Cherno more. We made our way to the hotel which had red carpet out the front, enormous building, a casino, roof top terrace and the list goes on. I thought this would be expensive and not in our price range. Peter and Maurice went inside and came out with big grins on their faces. Peter had negotiated a price for 70 Lev a double. That's about 25 dollars per head with breakfast. Now this has to be the best place in town and right in the centre of the Mall area. We can walk out the doors of the hotel and be right amongst it. Not a bad place to enjoy our rest day.
After settling in and cleaning the clothes I went for a walk of the town. Walked down to the Black Sea and put the feet in the water. I'll take some photo's of the amazing set up they have down on the beach tomorrow.
Tomorrow will be sightseeing, cleaning the bike and resting. No exercise.
Until tomorrow, safe riding.
