I have run my own café/restaurant for eight years. It was situated on the busy Eluonda causeway and was frequented by tourists and Greeks alike. The café is famous for its authentic Greek atmosphere where many local musicians went to play.
I am from Fourni village and I lived in Munich Germany with my German husband for ten years. I consequently speak English and German fluently. I have now passed on my café and wish to work in the tourist industry with the Poppy Season project organising tourist buddy tours with my Airbnb guests.
My life motto is:
Live everyday as if it were your last.
Five things I cannot live without:
My family life.
The countryside and the beauty of nature.
Music, especially reggae, traditional Greek and rock.
Companionship with close friends.
Favourite travel destinations:
