I have arrived!

I arrived in Bulgaria just after 1 pm (6am EST) this afternoon and am now in Stara Zagora awaiting my first meeting with Little Lady #1 in the morning! Aside from a slight delay in my last flight from Frankfurt to Sofia (the snow and wind are apparently following me around the globe), my travels were smooth and uneventful. I have not had much sleep in the past 48 hours and so I am completely exhausted, but I am hoping that might play in my favor and counteract the jet lag so that I can get some sleep tonight!

Bulgaria is BEAUTIFUL! As my final flight began to descend I was in awe of the breathtaking scene of small towns and villages, accented by terracotta roofs, nestled in the rolling hills. The drive to Stara Zagora was equally picturesque. Like the rest of Eastern Europe, old and run down buildings remind you of the history of this country, but the history is what makes it beautiful. I am looking forward to being able to experience so much of Bulgaria (Sofia, Stara Zagora and Lukovit) while I am here.

I am exhausted, so I will leave off here for tonight, but stay tuned! Tomorrow I will tell you all about my sweet little one, share pictures from our visit AND I will tell you what her name will be!

Until then, Flat Stanislav and I say "Chao!"
