Flag of Bulgaria

My first trip tp Bulgaria was in July of 1995. It remains my favorite country to visit and I am able to go about once a year. In the summer of 2005, took a group of Fredonia students on a 17-day study-tour.

During the Fall 1997 semester, I was a Fulbright Scholar at the American University in Bulgaria which is located in Blagoevgrad.

It was a wonderful experience, especially having my family there with me. Here are a few pictures from the Fall.
