1000km later, she was… fatter.

I worked out yesterday that I’d cycled over 1000km in the past 8 weeks.

For most people this would result in weight loss. Not me! I have been too keen on eating the delicious Bulgarian food, which – contrary to my previous reports – is not all cheese and yoghurt.

Here are a few of the reasons why I am not thin:


Kavarma – meat and vegetables cooked in a clay pot


Tsatsa – the ultimate bar snack?

Baked aubergine and vine leaves Bulgarian food

Grilled Tikvichki

Grilled Tikvichki (courgettes)

Mekitsi Bulgarian donuts

Mekitsi – because eating doughnuts for breakfast is acceptable in Bulgaria
