Yesterday we took the kids up to Maliovitsa, which is about 30-45 minutes from Samokov, and the gateway to Rila National Park here in Bulgaria. GORGEOUS!! This was hike number 2 from out Social Development project through PC and the America for Bulgaria Foundation, and its safe to say the kids did great, and everyone had a blast!
We started the day by hiking up to the Maliovitsa Hija (mountain lodge), and then we returned to the base again for a BBQ picnic followed by some games, watermellon, and the kids first introduction to S'Mores.
