We’re here at the train station in Istanbul and we’re hanging out with a mother cat and
her two adorable little kittens that are very skittish. And we’re taking a train to Bulgaria.
We don’t know much about the country. We just basically decided on a whim. Hey, it’s nearby
Turkey – let’s go there. And this is our adventure. Music playing in the background.
At some point last night at around three in the morning we crossed over from Turkey into
Bulgaria and we have just woken up to this beautiful autumn landscape.

to come and explore a new country. We’ve only got three days to explore Sofia but we’re
going to try to make the most of it. Music playing in the background.
So this is an empty compartment that we found and this is what it normally looks like when
the seats are down. You can fit three people on either side. This would be the middle bunk.
And way up there is the top bunk. So we’re staying in a compartment where we have six
people right now, so we are pretty packed in there with our bags. It was nice and toasty
at night, so we got some good sleep. Music playing in the background.
The one thing that we didn’t plan very well adequately for was the lack of food on the
train. There is literally nothing being sold. No drinks, no food, nothing whatsoever and
the only thing we’ve brought were nuts and dates, which you don’t like. No, and this
is supposed to be a fourteen hour train ride, which is now delayed. So that’s a long time
with no real food. It’s going to be one starving girl by the time we get to the station.
