Which travel destination has impressed you the most and why? I have traveled a lot, but Greece has impressed me a lot because of its history, culture, architecture, landscapes, etc. Otherwise, as soon as I set foot on Canadian or Romanian soil, my country of origin, I am so happy. However, I am far from having finished visiting Canada from coast to coast…

Which travel destination do you dream of and why? Japan. I want to admire the rising sun, the cherry trees, the mythical and zen gardens. I want to see and understand their traditions and culture such as literature, opera, tea ceremony, etc.

Which Olympic discipline appeals to you the most and why? Gymnastics, thanks to the performance of my Romanian compatriot Nadia Comaneci at the Montreal Olympics when she got a perfect score. She made Olympic history.

What do you prefer most in events and why? Creativity. The innovations, the technologies that make us better from event to event.
