Stoill Barzakov

Joined 2 years ago from Sofia, Bulgaria. Last activity 7 days ago.

My name is Stoill Barzakov (This beardy Bulgarian depicted here).

I am an IT, RPG and Anime maniac, trying to live healthy and long life, while helping the others.

My Hubs here are centered around herbal remedies and general wellbeing. I am also translating and adapting my Grandparents old notepad filled with clippings, recipes and information about herbs. They were real dedicated herbalists and I don't want their knowledge lost. (of course, that's NOT all that interests me)

My blog is based around my work and hobbies -> http://www.m0rd0r.eu it is dedicated to RPG games, some blogging tricks and Linux How-To's. Drop me a line if something interests you and we will discuss it.
