About Me

ABOUT ME

Hi people! I'm Christos, a university student, in Athens. I'd like to consider myself as an interesting person, willing to share his experiences, meet new people and listen to them. By travelling, I try to experiment with different cultures, understand other people's way of thinking and, finally, get fascinated by their way of living!

PHILOSOPHY

Well, I think that best experiences require spending a few or no money. Initiatives like CS make it easier. As you may have heard, "sharing is caring".

I also believe that being close to the nature brings people closer, makes us be more polite towards the environment and help us admire the splendor of life! We should consider Earth as our unique home and take care of it and not only exploit it. In few words, we should "think globally, act locally".

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Hosting and guiding, so far. Hope for surfing soon!

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Except for meeting new people and visiting new places via couchsurfing, you can also discover something new in your own city. That's what happened to me in my first hosting experience.

Interests

Apart from travelling, I like watching movies, listening to tasteful music, reading books, volunteering. In general, I like all these things that make you travel by mind. So, again travelling. But, I think that interacting with people and exchanging your thoughts with them is invaluable! In a nutshell, I mostly like living new experiences with several people and gaining from them.
