Hi Thelilleypad,

Bulgaria is becoming an increasingly popular expat destinations especially amongst Europeans looking for holiday homes or a cheaper cost of living.

When it comes to meeting people in a new place, I would suggest using Internations or Meetup which have social groups for people new to a place or interested in certain activities. 

You might find this Expat Check List a useful resource for planning a move overseas.

UK to Bulgaria via Philippines, what could possibly go wrong?!

Happy adventures everyone.
