About Me

I am restless and curious and always excited to meet people and discover new things, places, ideas.
I am Greek, living in Nicosia/Cyprus since July 2019 and enjoying every single day on the island.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I love to explore the world and the different cultures through meeting people and sharing experiences.
Traveling is sterile if you don't mingle with local life.

Two amazing things: my kids
