About Me

I'm a recent university graduate and have been longing to travel and seek new experiences in lands that are foreign to me. I love hearing about people's lives, passions, and interests. There isn't anything like connecting with another human. I think life is all about about sharing past experiences and creating new memories. Asking questions and listening is equally important. Hopefully I can do that with some of you all here.

I grew up in a large Greek family, with some Mexican and Italian roots as well. I've been very lucky and have been able to travel to Greece during many of my summers growing up. I think this has very much impacted my wanderlust. Family and friends are very important to me, as parts of them make up part of who I am.

I'm into all types of music (love going to festivals and concerts), playing sports and being active (basketball, soccer, hiking, pretty much anything where I can move), chilling out and doing nothing, laughing about stupid and silly stuff, and talking about "deep" stuff (sprituality, religion, human motivations, psychology, the universe, mythology etc).

Podcasts are cool too

I like laughing.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

There are various ways to travel and stay. There are things like AirBNB, hostels, and hotels. But in these methods of stay, a person is somewhat kept away from the real gems of places, things that only the locals could know. I feel that this can be experienced by couchsurfing.

Music, Movies, and Books

Music: Hip hop, classic rock and electronic are usually playing from the car stereo

Movies: Good Will Hunting, Shawshank Redemption, Interstellar, The Matrix, many comedies too

Books: The Alechemist, the Pilgrimage (Paulo Coehlo) , and the Razor's Edge (Somerset Maugham)

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

Hiking in the Grand Canyon. A MUST see (in my opinion)

What I Can Share with Hosts

Good company and conversation, a nutritional meal, new music to listen to, some translations in Greek. Hopefully some laughter

Countries I’ve Visited

Italy, Spain

Countries I’ve Lived In

Greece, United States
