I was born in Bulgaria, a beautiful country on the west coast of the Black Sea. However, at the time of my youth, it was part of Soviet-dominated Eastern Europe.

To make the first step on my personal way to freedom - the chance to travel free - I graduated in journalism at the Sofia University and became a member of the Brussels-based International Federation of Travel Writers. This has given me the opportunity to visit many countries and to mix with people from all walks of life, thus broadening my horizons.

The next step on my way to freedom was to turn my hobby - sailing and exploring ancient history - into a way of living. For the course of an unforgettable decade I enjoyed organising and participating in expeditions following ancient voyages, such as the Argonautica Expedition in search of the Golden Fleece, the Ulysses Voyage, the Kyrenia Expedition, the Trireme sea trials, the Crusade, the Pount Expedition, and the Papyrella Voyage. The books I wrote about some of these expeditions and other voyages have been my most rewarding creative experience so far. A dream came true when I became a Fellow of the Royal Geographical Society in London and could rub shoulders with the greatest explorers of our time.

A new step to the free world was my move to New York, and then to London to work as a journalist for renowned publications. It was exciting to live in an established democracy with old traditions in personal freedom. However, living in a democracy with its highly competitive environment turned out to be a different challenge. I realised that in a world where time is money I could easily spend the rest of my life in the rat race.

In order to buy myself time and to enjoy the freedom of doing the things I really want to do in life, I had to stop working for money and make money work for me. It took me a few years before I managed to find my way out of the rat race.

Back in my native Bulgaria, I now enjoy life to the full, embracing the power of the Internet, travelling, writing books, and having friends all over the world with a global business that has become my next step to freedom.
