About Me

Hi, I am Argyró or Iró - if it helps - I answer to both :)

One thesis regarding life (I have plenty - just saying :P) :
If we only live once, we have to make sure we live it right... then, this will be all that we needed in the first place!
One of my favorite quotes:
"To move, to breath, to fly, to float,
to gain all while you give,
to roam the roads of lands remote... to travel is to live."
by HCA

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I think that traveling and everything around it, it's a way of life. And it takes only one lifelong decision for the "How are we going to live it?" part!
I've hosted travelers before through a student organization and it was an amazing experience.
I love meeting people from all around the globe, exchanging ideas, thoughts and various stories.
So these are the three main reasons answering why I am here :)
I will do my very best to be a great host if it comes to it or an awesome guest/ traveler. :)

Interests

As you can see I have plenty of interests and hobbies. I love trying new things.

I consider cooking a way to be more creative. By the way I think of cooking and eating as one because I also love to try food from various cuisines!!!

Walking is one of the most precious things for me - if you can consider it as a thing - taking long walks with someone or by myself has always been a way for me to balance my thoughts and relax my mind a bit.

Motorcycles is an interest that was passed on let's say. I grew up being the second person on different motorcycles, I love the feeling of being free while riding one and the way you can easily speed up and feel the wind on your face. Not to mention that you can just go anywhere easier, especially in countries like Greece. I also like cars don't get me wrong lol.

Since I am mentioning dancing, music and traveling in other parts of my profile I am skipping them here.

Volunteering has a special meaning for me. I believe it can give anyone a greater cause in life. I've volunteered in many organizations and teams. From planting trees to student exchanges to trying to fight extreme poverty to helping refugees to teaching kids in need and so on. I love it, I consider it a meaningful way for me to invest my time in things that actually matter while learning and growing as a person.

Adventure, I will just say one thing here; life is just a big adventure and I am enjoying all of its sides good, bad, risky, thrilling, hilarious etc.

Sports in general is one of the things that makes me happy in life. Being on a team or on my own trying to achieve goals and to always be a better me than the one I see at the current moment really gets me going forward in life. Also is a great way to take the stress and anger out.
Especially now about kickboxing
I LOVE IT!!!
Not because I get to punch people...
well lol ...not because of that honestly. Kickboxing as other forms of martial art is indeed art. You create, you think, is not just kicking and punching. You are constantly thinking of how to be the winner not by cheating but by being the better player / fighter in there.

I can continue for hours but i prefer sharing the rest in person preferably walking around a new city. 🚶

Music, Movies, and Books

I am listening to almost every type of music depending on my mood and the company I am with. I, however, prefer jazz, classical, rock, reggaeton, latin music in general and some pop mostly acoustic. I also consider dancing a major way to express emotions and have fun either you are alone or with friends, so I listen to music and dance every spare minute of my day 😅😎.
I enjoy movies with clever plots that manage to keep things interesting (action, thriller, horror, comedy, drama etc.) - Don't have a favorite yet :)
I prefer different articles concerning psychology and human behavior, however, I recently read "The parrot's theorem" by Denis Guedj and I was very impressed by the context, the amazing stories, and meanings! ❤😍

One Amazing Thing I’ve Done

I was born :P
Kidding...
I will share when I get there ;)

Teach, Learn, Share

I am no teacher but I can cook and I really enjoy cooking with friends - I prefer to mix it up so we can cook together and create various dishes.
I can't guarantee that we are not going to order in at the end but we are going to have fun for sure 😂🍽

What I Can Share with Hosts

A lot of smiles, positivity, stories, and views on different aspects. I really enjoy exchanging ideas with people from all over the world, I believe that we can learn a lot throughout meaningful conversations!
