About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Learning, but not only from books.

ABOUT ME

I am an Oxford tour guide (The Oxford Tourist) and a Classics (Latin, ancient Greek, Classical Civilisation, ancient history) teacher by profession.

I am a little curious self with an uncontrollable yearning for novelty and a decent amount of respect for both the known and unknown.

PHILOSOPHY

I like being outside of my comfort zone. No cruelty. No war. No slavery. No abuse. No lie.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I have been hosting and been hosted many times and I cannot even imagine how culturally poorer I would have been without Couchsurfing.

Interests

I am genuinely interested in everything. I have certain special inclinations towards education, human rights, eradicating poverty.

I enjoy reading books, listening to music, watching films, doing yoga, jogging, and improving myself every moment: καλοκαγαθία.
