Geoff, his wife, their two horses and dog set out for Bulgaria in a thirty year old horsebox. At first the trip goes to plan, but as they get further into the journey things begin to unravel. Moving forward and back in time the book gives an account of the joys and the hazards they meet on this journey, whilst simultaneously telling the often hilarious story of Geoff’s ten year history with Bulgaria. Finally it deals with their current life with their animals in a small rural village in the foothills of the Balkans. It tells of the beauty of the region and describes their basic yet contented life amongst their Bulgarian neighbours. It is a story of characters and ways of life virtually forgotten in the West and shows that we have much to relearn about the joys of keeping things simple.
Geoff is a freelance author and poet. In 2014 he transported his wife and horses to Bulgaria and now doesn’t know how to get home so he has stayed and written a book about it. In what he says feels like a previous life Geoff was a senior child care professional working for thirty years in England and more recently across Europe including Bulgaria.
