About Me

CURRENT MISSION

Focusing on photography and video... (u can check my website, http://akisart1.wix.com/photography)

ABOUT ME CS and hospitality exchange networks in general Guru.. ;) (If you want to listen to music while checking my profile, click on this link: http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=2C00A3DB78A68CF3 Now, if you prefer more.. beat ;), then click this one http://www.youtube.com/view_play_list?p=34522F08F887685C ENJOY... ^__^)

(If my new profile doesn't make sense to you in many parts and you want to see how my profile used to look like once upon a time, with all links etc, click here.. ;) https://www.couchsurfing.com/users/498376/profile/legacy)

Friendly and honest guy who tries to think a bit from time to time...

Seriously, I don't think that a personal description is always objective enough: it's always how others (fortunately or unfortunately) see you after all.. Therefore, check this profile's references instead, below... :)

This period I mainly focus on photography, therefore you can visit my webpage, check my work's samples, use also my services, helping me this way to go on improving myself constantly: I think you'll like it, it contains music as well.. :)

Also, visit and "Like" my Facebook page if you want to stay tuned ;)

Last but not least: I'd REALLY appreciate if you share my FB page and website among your friends! And of course, if you pass by Athens and you love posing or you want to try at least, drop me a line..! ;)

PHILOSOPHY

Everyone is responsible for his own actions... You need no drugs: the best drug is your own mind...

Stop consuming more than you really need...

Why I'm on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

With my mind, my heart and my..flat ;) (Could I say that I've been considered as a CS.. guru nowadays? :P)

My CS mindset: please, read carefully below...

As in HospitalityClub (for almost 9 years by now! :)), also in CS we offer our friendship most of all...

If this is not your will but just to find a free place to sleep/eat/leave luggage, without caring to get to know with me, simply try another host : i'm not interested in this, not at all..

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Interests

Nature mostly, especially the Sea!!!

And many other things, depending on my mood each time...

But I always enjoy a really nice chatting, especially with people who know what they talk about and who are able to listen as well.. :)

Ok: if I see a non-fixed puzzle, I'll stick with it I'm afraid.. :)

Music, Movies & Books

Books: some of my favorites "Terre des Hommes" by Saint-Exupéry "Das Blütenstaubzimmer" by Zoë Jenny "A fine balance" by Rohinton Mistry "I mitera tou skylou" by Matesis (Greek one) "Solaris" by Stanislaw Lem: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Solaris_%28novel%29 "Long John Silver" by Björn Larsson "Beyond the Aegean" by Elia Kazan "Das Totenschiff" by B. Traven

Movies: Braveheart... ;) But I could add some of Lars Von Trier, like Breaking the Waves and Idioterne of course.. ;) Naaah, kidding: actually many many more.. :) Among them, Charlie Chaplin and most of old Greek comedies are all time classics.. :)

Finally all kind of books or movies that fit in my personal mood every time...

As about music, I cannot live without it... :) But let me explain: I enjoy almost all kinds of human music, depending on special mood. Just to mention some favorite examples: Camel, Caravan, Buckley (both Tim & Jeff), Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin, Hawkwind, Beethoven, Mozard, Vaklavek, Jean Michel Jarre, Tori Amos, folk music from everywhere and the line goes on and on and on... :)

But I really love nature's music, like wind's blowing, sea's murmuring, bird's singing, bees' flying, ants' marching, leaves' swinging, rain's falling, wave's crashing...

One Amazing Thing I've Done

Nature, in many different aspects...I slept for two nights in an ancient Greek temple... :)I flew over snowy Alps... :)

Teach, Learn, Share

I can teach you how to make a Greek salad, a real tzatziki, a nescafe frappe with a lot of foam.. :) (Also I can teach you the Greek language but for this we need enough time :))
