Get through university, travel, meet people and experience new things!
I'm half Greek and half English, but lived all my life on a lovely island in Greece. That is up until September 2010! Since then I have been living in Edinburgh, studying Civil Engineering. I like to think of myself as the adventurous kind, I absolutely LOVE traveling, discovering new places, new cultures, meeting new people, sharing experiences. Other than that I love all types of sports and anything to do with the great outdoors! Unfortunately I don't have enough space to put people up in the flat I'm living in, but if anyone is passing through EDinburgh and would like a coffee or a "guided" walk through the lovely parks let me know and if I have time it would be my pleasure to show you around! :)

Why I’m on Couchsurfing
HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING
Until now, I've surfed several couches in France and given advice on forums and such, mainly about the Greek islands. I also couch surfed in London. Hopefully I'll be able to give back some of the great hospitality I've had soon by hosting people!
Couchsurfed for 13 days in the south of France (March-April 2011) I met some wonderful people and had some great experiences! Also met up with a group of couchsurfers while I was in France and we hitch-hiked from Montpellier to a nearby village. Fantastic experience and truly lovely people...
Running, TRAVELING, basketball, walking, sailing, cycling, geography, maths, guitar (trying to reteach myself, if anyone wants to help please :) ), gym, baking, reading, cooking, drawing, emailing and skyping friends and many many more...
- eating out
- outdoor activities
Music, Movies, and Books
Music - It depends on the time and place, but I'll generally listen to most types of music. Jazz, oldies and classical when studying, mainstream when partying or doing housework :)
Movies - Forest Gump, The Pianist, Sex & the City films, Chocolat, etc. Again, not too picky!
Books - Memoirs of a Geisha, September Girls, Greek literature and lots more. I love reading, fiction or non fiction, magazines, newspapers, things on the internet!
One Amazing Thing I’ve Done
Sunrise in the middle of summer in Naxos, after a full moon night. The peacefulness of the time and just watching the light slowly slowly creeping up on you always gives me such a boost and an energizing feeling.
Elephants in Ghana :D
Teach, Learn, Share
Teach - Definitely some Greek or English (and maybe some French?!)! I'm quite good at cooking (or I like to think I am :) ), so could share some recipes etc. ,
Learn - Seriously, anything you've got to offer! I'm always up for learning new skills / languages, anything really...
Share - Travel experiences, good tips, a pot of tea/coffee :)
