Ivan Petkov


Over the years I’ve lived in various places - from Germany to Finland, to Bulgaria and Denmark, and have also traveled extensively. This has developed in me a keen love for moving, visiting and exploring new places. I enjoy hiking, sailing and traveling by sea, swimming, martial arts and all sorts of physical activities. I am deeply concerned about environmental issues and sustainable living, specifically those related to the preservation of the oceans and their inhabitants.
On a more creative side, I have an affinity for writing and have also translated several books from different languages. I have been blogging for a while and am continuously looking into new fields to write about. Amongst these I explore yachting, stories of famous yachts, their designers and builders, exotic destinations to be visited and others.
