We live in the 21st century. Where sending an e-postcard takes literally 3 seconds. However, my grandpa is old fashioned and is still getting used to our fast-paced, 4G, multidimensional world.
As somebody who comes from Bulgaria, I am quite aware that the Balkan and Mediterranean food is quite similar. We may not have as much fish, but everything else is quite the same!

Hello and thank you for visiting my tiny little joy box! I am honored to see you here.
