This is the view from our appartment on the 18th floor towards the Eastern end of Sofia. In the distance, Stara Planina (the Balkan mountain) can be seen. Vitosha montain is to the right (not seen on photo). Sofia Airport is in the far right. Besides planes taking off, we also see the trains going to the East, to Plovdiv, and to the sea-side. We aslo see many roads (not all leading to Rome, though). With such a view, no wonder travel is the first thing that comes to your mind while having coffee on our balcony... You can dream of being on a plane taking off or trekking in the mountains... Coming home is also nice, as we can see our 20-storey high building from the plane, on the ride hime from the airport, also from the train, coming back from Burgas at the seaside... Looking at all the planes, trains, cars, buses and trams, you hope that very soon you will be travelling in one, taking a trip to the next great place...
