Today I went on my first excursion outside of Veliko Tarnovo. The first part of it was a car boot sale! Not the kind of thing I expected to find in Bulgaria. It was in a field next to a farm; I saw sheep being herded into the field behind us and a harnessed (but not saddled) donkey nibbling on grass next to a stream. Most of the stalls were run by British expats, though there were one or two ones run by locals. The only thing I bought was a jar of homemade raspberry and apple jam, which I intend to have as soon as I've finished my current jar of delicious homemade raspberry and redcurrant jam!


After we'd looked round the car boot sale, we walked for half an hour through the open countryside to an impressive set of waterfalls. There was a big pool in front of it and there were sets of wooden steps/ ladders up the side.


We climbed these, looked out from above the waterfall (there was a lovely view) and explored the river leading up to the edge. There were several more ladders as well as small, wooden slat bridges taking us across the river and back again, past pools and smaller waterfalls. Once we came back to where we'd started from, at the foot of the big waterfall, most of us paddled for a while.


It was a wonderfully sunny day and it was lovely to get out into the countryside for a while. Once we had driven past the hills and enscarpments that surround Veliko Tarnovo, the landscape was quite flat.
