ABOUT ME

LISTEN SOME COOL MUSIC..WHILE SURFING MY PROFILE...MY LIFE 'S SONG...JOHHNIE B..
LISTEN SOME MORE COOL MUSIC..WHILE SURFING MY PROFILE...SWEET DISPOSITION..
Hello everybody!!!!

My name is Yiannis and i am from Greece..I really love my country (especially at these difficult days..) and i have had the luck to explore it for many years, when i was a child with my parents!

But since i also do love the ''whole world''..the last 15 years i am travelling mainly abroad, exploring new places, cultures and people!

The only place of Greece thai i am still visiting all the time is Volos and Pelion mountain since its really very beautiful!!
And I strongly believe that:HEAVEN IS A PLACE ON EARTH I have finished the Aristotele 's University of Thessaloniki and later I went to England where I did my MSCi in Finance at the University of Essex (UK). Nowadays..I am an economist at the private banking sector....
AND I AM HELLENE (GREEK) BUT ALSO CITIZEN OF THE WORLD!!
I like travelling very much and I could say that TRAVEL IS MY FIRST PRIORITY. I believe that the travel makes the people friendly, open minded and united, because when they meet other cultures, civilizations, people, religions ecc, they understand that they are not enemies with the others and don't have anything to separate.
How I participate at COUCHSURFING?: I host as many people as I can, I am CS Ambassador, Moderator of several Greek Cs Groups, I welcome the new members, I organise meetings, I travel as much as I can, but most of all I give my best for COUCHSURFING and TRAVELLERS!
As you may know the word ''PHILOXENIA'': which means hospitality and not only, is Greek, so I think all the Greeks CS have to do their best in order to verify this!

WHERE THE STREETS HAVE NO NAME..MY LIFE'S SONG..


So...the main charecteristic of my life ιs the ''too many movements''....for ..travel reasons...and my crazy wish.. is to travel to more than 100 countries... You see my best friend is my baggages. And my worst enemy is the.... "immobility"....

And u know.. I do like Couchsurfing because with CS u are a TRAVELLER and not a tourist......

But i also do love hosting and knowing people of Cs

FINALLY.. I LOVE LIFE (too many loves..sorry..)BECAUSE, EVENTHOUGH ITS SHORT, ITS VERY BEAUTIFUL, IF U ARE REALLY LOOKING TO DISCOVER ITS BEAUTIES!

AND I DO LOVE COUCHSURFING!!
AND THERE ARE MANY ''BEAUTIFUL SOULS'' AROUND US AS WELL, AND.. CS HAS HELPED ME TO REALIZE THIS FACT EVENMORE THE LAST YEARS!

Moreover, I am almost always busy but ''easy goin''Generally I could say that I am a CITY PERSON. Ok I like nature but after some days I am bored from the quiteness. I love big cities because u can do so many different things both during day and night.I also like the nice cafe and bistrots, going there not only with friends but also alone with a book or a newspaper.WITH OR WITHOUT U......NO COMMENT MY FRIENDS

Generally?: LIFE, TRAVEL, Sea, swimming, New York and Paris, football, pizza, books, cappuccino, European and independent cinema,smile, international politics, HUMANS!

I love swimming and I can watch the sea daily.I do love Paris... JE VEUX and New York... EM?PIRE STATE OF MIND since u can find everything there! I do love the cinema ( the european one and the american independent), the italian culture (food, language, football, culture, beauty)and finally I like the arts generally (I love meeting museums everywhere I go).

TRAVEL THE WORLD AND THE SEVEN SEAS!!

I DROVE ALL NIGHT..

AN INTERVIEW OF ME AT THE GREEK NATIONAL TELEVISION CHANNEL, ABOUT COUCHSURFING AN INTERWIEW AT A GREEK NEWSPAPER ABOUT COUCHSURFINGLINK:www.tanea.gr/ellada/article/?aid=4643408

AND I LOVE PARIS!!!..

PHILOSOPHY

I live in life for meeting people and cultures, sharing, travelling, loving and not hating. Also trying to learn as many things as possible. I think it is better considering the others like friends and not enemies although may be one two times I will be hurted. It is better than being closed to my ''refuge'' the whole of my life and not trying anything. Better risk than be a blind. THE WORST ENEMY OF HUMANITY IS THE FEAR.

Whether long range weapon or suicide bomber,
Wicked mind is a weapon of mass destruction.
Whether you're Soaraway Sun or BBC 1,
Misinformation is a weapon of mass destruction.
You coulda Caucasian or a poor Asian,
Racism is a weapon of mass destruction!
Whether inflation or globalization
FEAR is a weapon of mass destruction!
Whether Halliburton, Enron or anyone,
GREED is a weapon of mass destruction...

WE NEED TO FIND THE COURAGE, OVERCOME...
INACTION is a weapon of mass destruction!

RESPECT TO CS. IT'S TRAVEL AND CULTURE. NOT AN INSTRUMENT OF FLIRT! I MEAN FLIRT IS NOT BAD OF COURSE. IT'S STH BEAUTIFUL WHEN ITS ON THE RIGHT WAY, BUT WE CAN DO IT EVERYWHERE IN THE DAILY LIFE. SOMETIMES IT MAY HAPPENS AT CS ALSO OF COURSE (I KNOW PERSONS THAT HAVE BECOME COUPLES AND I THINK ITS VERY BEAUTIFUL), BUT IT DOES NOT MEAN THAT CS IS THE ONLY WAY! ON CONTRARY THE USE OF CS ONLY.... FOR FLIRTING SHOWS LACK OF PERSONALITY AT LEAST....CS ITS NOT ONLY FOR SAVING MONEY! IF SOMEBODY WANTS ONLY THAT ITS BETTER TO GO TO A HOSTEL OR HOTEL.CS IS ALSO MANY OTHER THINGS! SHOW INTEREST ABOUT OUR HOSTS-GUESTS AND THEIR CULTURE.

One Amazing Thing I've Done

I could write so many many things about this question, since i have met so many beautiful places, so many wonderful people, and I have had a great amount of positive and unique experiences and pictures that somebody in order to estimates them has to ''live'' them, so unfortunately u cant transfer their beauty through words.
Generally i think that the best that everyone of us can do is simply travel and love!
