I’ve always believed in that cliché that sport is a social phenomenon. In particular, I strongly believe in the power of volleyball to be a changing factor in our society. Which makes me ask you the following question: Have you ever noticed that events which on first look have nothing in common, eventually lead you to the same conclusion or at least to the same thoughts… But here is a bit of pre-history to this blog post, which is more about these different points that at the end brought to me a conclusion about social impact that volleyball people...Read More

We live in a crazy world. And we all know it even if we don’t want to accept it. … Sometimes I feel too much and I get too emotional about things that surround me and have nothing to do with my personal life. And sometimes I suffer too much for the world. Even without realizing it I turned out to be a human lover that is being hurt by all the evil in our society, by all the iniquity that happens on a daily basis in almost every corner of the world.

How do I spend my Friday nights in the summer?

I was in the bus...Read More

Yes, I am aware that this title could sound a bit strange. But that’s its aim. To provoke you. And me. It’s 21:42 o’clock. Monday evening. And I cannot stop watching some volleyball pics, videos of some spectacular events that happen this Sunday, 8th of May. And while I am doing this, I am listening to the great Frank Sinatra and his My Way. I am surrounded by my flat mates, they are talking to me. Yet, my head and my soul are not in Spain. They are somewhere between Bulgaria and Italy. Why? Here I will explain you....Read More
