My Beautiful Bulgaria: Part II, Troyan Balkan: Botev Peak, Troyan Monastery, Zelenikovski Monastery

I know that being busy can't be an excuse for my irregular posting. Especially when I have so interesting things to write about. This summer wasn't the greatest in my life in terms of weather. For the first time in so many years it was cold during the better part of it, and rainy most of the days. Rain doesn't go well with hiking. That's one of the reasons why I've only visited 5 places this season. The other reasons - working hard and my best friend's wedding :)
I've been wanting to climb Botev peak for so many years. That was in fact the only peak of the highest in Bulgaria, which I haven't conquered yet. And there was always something that had prevented me from doing so.
