This is a report for one of my trips to Bulgaria back when I was still loyal to Sky Team. It's been roughly 2 years, but given I had all the pictures, decided to post anyway.

A few photos from taxi ride to airport from my old apartment in Upper East.

The inside of this Boeing 767 was really old and stained. The 767 from JFK to ATL was in a much better condition. Good thing they merged with Northwest to tap into the Airbuses.

The airport technology at CDG wasn't flawless. None of screens of the 20+ gates in Terminal 2C (I think) worked. There was one agent who looked up gates and provided upon request. Very disorganized.

Good AF food though.


Arrival in Sofia.


Some shots of the new Sofia terminal here.


Many days later, it was time to return to the USA. Early morning at the new terminal of Sofia Airport.

This was a nice plane ride. The flight map was very new, similar to what I have seen on Finnair. Overall very nice airline, even though recent negative reports have emerged.

I didn't find any photos from this segment, bus will instead upload some nice Paris shots from my 7 hour layover. Once in downtown, I hopped on one of the double deckers to see as much as possible in the few hours I had.

At this point I realized I need to get off and get some food.
http://i800.photobucket.com/albums/yy284/ydm03/Europe2008/image062.jpg

But first, let's take some “rest”.

After this trip, I found the Creparies on Ludlow St and McDougall St in NYC. They are owned by the same guys and are pretty good, despite not being such a good value for the buck.
