Hiking Outside Veliko Tarnovo

I spent a few days camping in Samovodene, just north of Veliko Tarnovo at the lovely Veliko Tarnovo Camping site. There are loads of hiking and rock climbing spots in the area and I spent a few hours trekking to the Holy Trinity monastery, which was unfortunately closed the day I went, I assume because of independence day celebrations.

I did, however, see a lot of very cool grasshoppers and other bugs. I’m starting to think I should have been an entomologist opposed to an etymologist because on this trip I’ve found that I really, really love looking at bugs!
