Hi everyone! Ok, let´s try.
I´m a simple guy by a greek name (ask my mam about it), born in Sevilla and currently working and living in Cádiz. Public worker for the Enviroment Department of the Andalucia Public Administration. Love it, I´m into outdoor stuff and got kind of an useful role, or try to. I´m interested in everything about agricultural and enviromental issues.
I try to be a simple person concerned about simple daily little things (sounds cheesy). And I´m too careless sometimes.
Everything I know is wrong (is it one?)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
I Mainly participate hosting and surfing couches, but also helping out in the organization of CS event, like CS Tarifa Beach Party, an annual meeting that´ll celebrate its 6th edition the coming june.
And have attended gatherings in almost every country I´ve visited.
Gatherings and meetings are for me as important as the fact of hosting/surfing. This is why I try to participate joining and organicing events. The Cadiz weekly meeting for instance.
And of course hosting and crashing couches.
I discovered CS a few years ago. The thing is that I´ve surfed some couchs in some coutries, and have hosted some many other people.
Ok I started it by hosting people. And then the first surfing experience was in Scandinavia. Just awesome. Nice people who suddently pick me up from stations, offered me their home, their food, their friends.
