Times like these I think to myself "it would have been a good idea to go through my photos". I may have a problem with leaving things to the last minute. Not all things, just travel related things. Tonight I'm getting on a plane again, four more countries, four more weeks. Packing, incomplete (technically, not actually started). Passport, credit cards, cameras, I guess a few t-shirts and a pair of nice slacks, maybe a rain jacket. In any case, I should have some great photos to show you of Bulgaria. I don't. I probably won't be getting to them any time soon. Shame, it was the first time I had seen words like "България". Which is Bulgarian for "Bulgaria".
Bulgaria was home to one of the worlds greatest architects, "Iwan Iwanoff". Iwan moved from Bulgaria, to my home town, Perth Western Australia, and built some of the coolest houses on earth. He remains remarkably unknown, in both Australia and Bulgaria. This isn't an architecture blog, but if you are interested in what happens when you mix the styles of Frank Lloyd Wright (who?) and Mike Brady, please check the worlds number one resource for everything Iwanoff - my other blog.
RIP, Iwan Iwanoff, you were an inspiration to the first photo-less post on NoPlanes.com. I am sure, България is proud.
