Word for the Travel Wise (08/16/06)

Bulgarian Flag Isn’t it funny how we take so much for granted until we’re in a place lacking the modern conveniences we’re so very accustomed to? Looking at the picture included with today’s word from Lonely Planet’s online guide to Bulgaria made me think about the well-built bridges here in the U.S. Not to say that all are well-built, but I don’t know if you could get me to cross this eco-path located in the Negovanka Canyon of Bulgaria. The ‘most’ or bridge, made of only wood and stone looks pretty high from what I can tell and not as stable as I would like. Would you cross it?

Today’s word is a Bulgarian word used in Bulgaria:


most – bridge

The Bulgarian lang falls into the Southern branch of Slavic languages and is closely related to Macedonian.
