For the first five days, I was in Sapareva Banya, next to the Rila mountains. About a dozen of us were staying in a small, village hotel. Most days it was over 30 degrees, so it was great to have a pool to cool off in. So, a bit of training, a bit of swimming, walks in the mountains… nice!
I was really in Bulgaria for the World Championships of Savate Assaut, which were held in Plovdiv from 30th August to 2nd September. A fun event, more than 30 countries represented and a great hotel (with five pools!!).
