Living in Bulgaria
1) Other people looking to make a buck.
2) Be aware that there are animal diseases out here that we are not used to, or, that are not as common in the UK – rabies, parvo virus, lungworm, heartworm, parasitic blood infections, tick borne diseases, feline infectious anaemia (which humans can also catch, transmitted from mosquito bites).
3) Well water is probably best tested to make sure it’s safe. There has been contamination into the water table from cesspits not being sunk deep enough and far enough in some parts of Bulgaria, so it’s always worth being cautious.
