Our Volvo Traveled to Actual Location of Buzludzha Monument in Bulgaria From Movie Mechanic Ressurection

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Oct 5, 2016 in 1995 Volvo 460

Didn’t see Jason Statham, Jessica Alba or Tommy, but did notice there was no Black Sea close by to the House-Monument of the Bulgarian Communist Party featured in the movie Mechanic Resurrection. The Buzludzha Monument is actually located at Buzludzha. Buzludzha is a historical peak in the Central Balkan Mountains of Bulgaria. In 1868, it was the place of the final battle between Bulgarian rebels led by Hadji Dimitar and Stefan Karadzha and the Ottoman Empire.

Buzludzha Monument

This structure was built to honor the country’s Communist movement and some feel that it should be left to ruin as a symbol of a fallen totalitarian regime.

The Search for OUR Volvo

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Feb 5, 2012 in 1999 Volvo V70

The Search for ourVolvo in Google returns a number of pleasant surprises.

For example, Alex & Wendy from Old Town Home bought a NEW CAR: a 2011 Volvo XC60 – great choice indeed. Congratulations!

Other friends from CT, moving to Asia, are selling their 2005 XC90

YouTube has a video about our Volvo fh 480

Another story from YouTube has a S60 driven in Romania, which reminds us, we have some footage of driving our 1995 Volvo 460 (1.8i) from Berlin to Bulgaria that should be posted here soon…

See Trip To Bankso

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Sep 27, 2010 in 1995 Volvo 460

Bansko Bulgaria

Most people tour Bansko, Bulgaria for the wonderful ski slopes, but in our case it is quit the opposite.  We did not go on a ski trip but a see trip, to all of the churches in the area.  What a quaint place.  Recommended stop for a old Volvo like me.

Grill

Pri Miro is a great little place to eat in Bulgaria and if you are wondering what the title says, so am I.  But it is the name of the village where this great grill restaurant is located right near the town of Dupnitsa, Bulgaria.

Side By Side

Volvo

We went to a camp in the mountains again this weekend and when we returned to our trusty Volvo 460 we noticed that another Volvo had been keeping ours company.  It was just soooo cute that we had to take a picture.  When talking with it’s owner he mentioned to us that his Volvo just like ours is aging the same way with the same cosmetic defects.  We tried to speak softly so that the Volvos wouldn’t hear us and effect their self-esteem.  Regardless of the blemishes the Volvo is the most trusty car and like my daddy always says, “it’s what’s on under the hood that matters the most”.

The High Life

Posted by OurVolvo.com on Aug 19, 2009 in 1995 Volvo 460

volvoMy owners were kind enough to treat me to a private get-a-way at an exclusive villa resort in the mountains of Bulgaria.  They did so because they were so appreciative of all I do for them.  And after that experience without me sleeping on the ground in a tent in the Balkan mountains, we have grown so much closer.
