Last week Give Us Time sent over 100 individuals to Bulgaria for a week-long respite break.
Our military families were able to enjoy a restoring respite break thanks to the generosity of the Balkan Jewel Resort.
The week featured a welcoming reception for our families during which the hosts greeted the group with staff dressed in traditional Bulgarian outfits. The families could also taste some traditional Bulgarian food, including banitza: a tasty baked pie filled with cheese.
The Balkan Jewel resort is located near Bansko which is situated at the foot of the Pirin mountain and features one of Bulgaria’s longest ski runs, which our families were able to use throughout the week.
The scenic settings and relaxing scenarios were just what Give Us Time families needed to focus on quality time with their loved ones while resting and reconnecting after challenging times.
We would like to thank all the staff at the Balkan Jewel Resort for their hospitality throughout the week and for making our military families feel at home.
