About the book
'Conversations on a Train' is a light-hearted cross-cultural account of one Bulgarian's life between their country of birth and her adopted home in Australia. Set between 1993–2015, it is a collection of anecdotes, musings, and reminiscences on Bulgarian culture, childhood and homesickness. Regina Ryan (née Stefanova) illustrates how Bulgarians relate to the world and how she adjusted to life in Australia. From her teenage years in Sofia and Burgas through to adulthood in Perth, Regina discusses cultural differences and how she deals with these now as an adult who divides her time between two countries. 'Conversations on a Train' is also Regina's blatant attempt to Bulgarianise the reader.
