About Me


Travel cheap in Japan


My name is Giannis and I live in Athens,capital of Greece.I grew and spent all the years of my life here.

I cannot describe my self precisely.

I know that I can be warm and helpful with people.Sometimes I consider my self quite stupid,since I cannot understand the simplest thing -.-
I can be quite annoying with my unstopable questions.
I try to be funny (which is not always successful unfortunately....)

I love helping people,I love the idea of travelling,it is an activity worth spending money for.


You take what you give.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing


Showing around my city to visitors or hosting travellers whenever I am able to.


I do not have much of CouchSurfing experience.I tried it while travelling in South-East Asia and it seems to be really awesome.The whole idea of helping travellers and giving them the opportunity to taste the life of the country they are visiting through a warm and helpful environment of home,is something fabulous.Definitelly worth trying it.


- I am always into music.I do not play an instrument or write but I enjoy listening and trying different genres of music.
- Watching movies of course (who doesn't?).
- Learning new languages.
- I love cycling.Taking the bike and going for a ride at the feet of mount Parnitha next to my town is something that I really enjoy.
- I am new into the juggling thing.I bought some juggling equipment from my trip to Thailand and I have started practising.I hope I will reach the level of a good juggler.
- I was always interested into photography.Taking photos and seeing photos of other people.Capturing the moments ;)
- I write some times,short novels or wannabe-big stories.All of them are unfinished though.
- Taking my ipod and going for walks around my place while listening to my favourite music is something that I do quite often.It helps me relax a lot.
