Up in the Air
Landed in London Gatwick Airport and went to the airport restaurant to have lunch
Our food (I am travelling with a friend)
I had the lasagna and it was quite awful, c'mon how wrong can u go with lasagna and this is unacceptable standard, my friend also said his pasta is not nice at all -verdict: DON'T eat in Gatwick Airport unless necessary.
After our meal, Sofia HERE I COME!!!
Landed in the airport about 2hours 45mins later
Had problems at the customs as they never seen Singapore passport before and they are not sure if I need a Visa to enter the country. (-.-)
At least they sorted things out and let us pass but that is after they cleared everyone in the airport and I felt like a 2nd class citizen but anyway things turned out better afterwards, the hostel arranged someone to pick us up from the airport and this is where I am staying.
Found out that we are not staying in the hostel residence itself as we booked a private room so we had to walk like 5mins away from the hostel to like a service apartment. This is our room for 3 nights.
The next day we decided to venture out of the city to this place called Rila and it is like a 2 hour drive from the city.
We reached a place that is like a forest where a monk used to stay and there is a cave where he stayed in there for like 7 years. It is also said in Sofia that if you are able to pass through the cave and come out from the other side, you are like cleanse spiritually.
A small church near the cave

Coming out from the cave *YEAH I'M CLEANSE!!!*
After that our guide brought us to the Rila Monastery where we had our lunch at a small restaurant beside the Monastery.

A MUST try from the hostel but I think it was so so
What do your think of this monastery?
