Caches No’s 805 & 806 – Holiday Caching in Bulgaria

I went on holiday with my friends to the Black Sea coast resort of   Golden Sands in Bulgaria, which is one of Europe’s most cache free areas – there are nearly 300 caches within a 5 mile radius of my house, there were 2 caches within 5 miles of my hotel in the middle of Sunny Beach. So I went and found both

13th September 2010 – Orthodox Mesembria – GCXTJD – cache #805
A very strange cache this compared with the regulations on cache placement in the UK, this cache is placed in the hole in a stone wall, the wall being the wall of an ancient monument, an ancient monument in the middle of a World Heritage Site, the village of Nessebar, as shown below…
At this cache I collected the Travel Bug TB2J3PW – Dralion

16th September 2010 – Old Nessebar Tour – GC2D1MG – cache #806
The second cache is a puzzle cache which involves a tour of about 15 spots within the village that is the World Heritage Site, with numbers collected at each spot to calculate the co-ordinates. I have to admit I cheated, I looked at the description which finished with a picture of a bench saying that the cache was hidden at a bench like the one in a picture… I looked around and there were only about 10 benches of the particular type in the picture, and I found the cache under the fourth one.
