    Doboer den,
    Je suis enfin tombé sur un site qui montre une image magnifique de la Bulgarie et en français . En effet mes efforts pour apprendre votre langue ne sont pas encore couronnés de succès mais je persévérai. L’ouest de la Bulgarie n’est pratiquement pas décrit dans les guides en français ( je suis suisse roman) . Ce sera la deuxième fois que j’irai en Bulgarie peut-être en septembre 2014 avec un ami. Et notre projet est de visiter l’Ouest Nord. Si vous voulez bien me suggérer quelques piste d’informations sur votre magnifique pays nous en serions très heureux. Je vais poursuivre ma lecture de votre site en attendant. Si vous voulez correspondre en français ce sera un plaisir pour moi (en attendant que je puisse écrire en bulgare…)

    Merci pour votre site et bonne année 2014
