An old letterbox from the time they were written. Now it's full of albums with photos, letters, cards, scented napkins and a bunch of gadgets that have sentimental value to me.

Oh, I'm clutching my suitcase and going around the world !!!
What music and books do you prefer?
I read from everything, one genre is enticing with one, another - with another. I love the variety of books, but crime novels are my favorite. I treat music the same way. Being a moviegoer, I love film music, but I like retro, nice jazz, house, and rock.
What are your favorite places in the city?
Sofia is a great city, there is everything for everyone. I'm a connoisseur of good food. I found a restaurant with traditional Bulgarian cuisine, served in a non-standard way, with a lot of styles. This is the downtown Karmare restaurant. Another favorite spot from my childhood is the garden and the fountain in front of the National Theater. In the warm months, I like to go there, it reminds me of walking with my mom as a kid and the pastry shops around.
If we were to visit you today, what would you cook for us in your own kitchen?
I will welcome you with nice wine and my salty pancake cake. I don't want to brag, but I'm a great cook. I cook with love and you will surely love it.
Do you travel often and where is your favorite place in the world?
When I was little, my son once asked me, "If you have the opportunity to choose a superpower, which one would you like to have?" I love traveling and changing pictures. It fills my soul with experiences from different parts of the earth. I don't have a favorite place, I like to get to know about different cultures and peoples, but I prefer warm destinations. In winter I like ski destinations, but I would visit Moscow again. There I spent an unforgettable New Year with friends a long time ago.
