Plovdiv was a bit of a turning point for me, literally. I left Bulgaria’s second city and boarded a bus back to Thessaloniki. I felt that I had not experienced enough of the city and the Greek atmosphere.
There was one main reason I came to Plovdiv, and that was because I was told to. I was told by an old friend of mine to visit his hometown and even better was that he would be there at the same time as my visit.
After spending quite a while in Greece, I decided to make a move and continue my travels. From Thessaloniki, there is a direct bus to the capital of Bulgaria so I boarded that and headed onto Sofia.
