Stancho S.

Sofia, Bulgaria

I like to travel and meet new people from all over the word, getting familiar with different cultures, exchange opinions about life.

That's why this job is perfect for me and I do not face any difficulties by doing it. I have a great sense of humor and I am a very flexible person so everyone can go along with me very easily. In addition to that, with my serious background in travel industry people feel safe and comfortable when they travel with me.

Bulgaria and Sofia in particular are full of culture and history. In our capital you can see a great mixture of ancient cultures, historical sites, communist times buildings and of course a new democratic times. Everything is in the very center and you can jump from very ancient to Roman times, then the Byzantine Empire, the arrival of the Bulgarians, Ottoman occupation, King times between WW1 and WW2, passing communist era and diving into lots of parks, cozy coffee shops and cute family run restaurants which welcome you to try all local specialties and enjoy the authentic atmosphere of the place.

In addition I can say that I have great interest in reading books, watching movies, doing my own pencil drawings, making photos, walking in nature, bicycling, swimming, telling jokes, enjoying nice meals and having fun with people.

It will be a great pleasure for me to invite you in Sofia and to be my honored guest.
