ABOUT ME

George Chrysostomou | Create Your Badge

I enjoy meeting new people who come from different cultural backgrounds and not just CSers (because these people are the best!!! :) I love the great outdoors and outdoor activities, this is the reason that ever since I got involved with CS I have been organising and participating events that are happening on the island as well as abroad.

...and more! :)

People who participate in the events are not the adventure-junkie type of people, they are people from the CS community, most from different cultural backgrounds, who simply like to have a good time with fellow Csers and are open to making friends and broadening their network of contacts. Many times I have heard from participants that it was their first time camping and that they have simply loved it! :)

I therefore, invite you too to participate in an organised event to make friends, to meet other CouchSurfers and at the same time to have an unforgetable experience with a bunch of amazing and unique people! :)

PHILOSOPHY

I live life to find happiness and peace in mind. To love special people and be loved by special people. To enjoy every minute of it...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

I do my best in organising events for the CouchSurfing community of Cyprus. I like to meet new people and listen to their experiences and stories. I believe that the CS culture will remain strong through its wonderful and friendly community and that one day it will be recognised as an important worldwide organisation which its opinion will be making a difference in the world.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I met a group of five friendly couchsurfers. We sat at the local harbour and had a hot choc with or without cream and sugar. I was embarassed not to have known the history of the most famous local fortress in the Paphos pier. (Oh well you know how it is with local history...) We had pizza back at my apt. and we would have watched a movie on the 'BIG' screen if the couch surfers didn't have to leave due to other obligations. Today I can confidently say that it has proven out to be an excellent choice to have become a member and I look forward to the next event organised by other CouchSurfers!

Interests

Cinema and music, arts and to meet new cultures. The wide world of the Internet, computers and technology. To meet new people especially people of the CS community and socialise with them in various get together events.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Jumped off the Cape Greco... 3 times in a row!!! Got up at 5am to see the amazing green turtles hatch from their eggs! Climbed the scariest cliff with my 4wd jeep! (Tip of the Cyprus island cliff...)

Teach, Learn, Share

"Patience is a virtue" I can teach you how to make a website! how to fix your broken PC, how to find the answer/solution to any problem you may have by using the internet. I could write down websites like google, yahoo!!! answers.yahoo.com :) but most probably you already heard of them! I would like very much to learn whatever it is you would like can teach me! :)
