About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Brazil - 2014. Eurotrip - before I turn 30.

ABOUT ME

While I might not be the type of person who is loud nor am I usually the center of attention, I am a friendly, observant, and curious young woman. Being in my mid-twenties I can't say I have figured out life, I want to, but I don't think I could ever have a solid answer. I'm the type of person who would make up outrageous 'facts' to amuse strangers, but most of the time I'm the one amused when they believe in them. I grew up in three different countries, and so there is not one single place that I call home. Home to me, is wherever my family and friends are. I am constantly craving for adventures, but I do enjoy crafternoons, movies, and cooking indoor as well. I don't want to show my entire hand in this small section, but feel free to hit me up to get to know me better!

PHILOSOPHY

"Treat people the way you'd like to be treated." - My father "A good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving."- Lao Tzu

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

I am fairly new to this, but I have been reading up on all the couchsurfing stories that I came across. Trying surfing for the first time this coming weekend, will update this once that is done!

Interests

Traveling. Adventures. Food. Drinks. Art. Music. Cultures. Dances. Languages. Endless conversations. Sherlock Holmes. The 1960s. Football matches. International Affairs. Human Rights. Scotch... Right, that goes under drinks. Oh and many more.

Music, Movies & Books

Too many to list, let's talk about it over drinks?

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I studied in a University near Niagara Falls, it still amaze me every single time I see it, no matter day or night. While cycling on the Golden Gate Bridge in San Francisco, I stopped in the middle of it, turned around to look at the city. I fell completely in love with it right that moment. Sitting in an American diner in Buffalo NY with a group of Greek friends, I learned how to read the Greek alphabet properly and listened to the Greeks bicker about Greek politics and economy. I am constantly amazed by how small this world can sometimes be.

Countries I've Visited
