Reading is my favourite hobby since early childhood. My areas of interest are in history and old civilisations, especially old Egyptian and Roman empire history, medicine, novels and politics. I also enjoy walking, jogging, watching football, playing Chess, hearing soft and classic music and browsing the internet.
