A FEW WORDS ABOUT MYSELF

Member since: March 12, 2013

Dear friend, Welcome to Hellas (aka Greece, Yunanistan, Xila, Saberdzneti)! As you may have read from myathens.thisisathens.org/program-terms/ , "This is My Athens" volunteers aren't Licensed Tourist Guides, so we're not authorised to guide tourists around the sights of Athens (ancient or historical monuments, works of art of each era etc) & explain their significance, destination, history etc. This program aims at bringing together the visitors of Athens with us, its residents, who (without any financial reward or fee) are willing to show the neighborhood we live in & the places we visit during the day. This way our guests participate in the Athenian life, understand our customs & culture & become communicants of the Greek spirit. If every city is a book full of information then this platform helps passionate travellers "read" & experience the city authentically, through the eyes of the Athenians. It's all about exploring the less known parts of Athens & discovering this city's real gems; the local volunteers who love sharing their insights & knowledge of the city. To sum up, my goal as a local volunteer is to welcome you, introduce you my personal perspective of Athens & most importantly, make you feel like a true Athenian for a couple of hours, in a laid back way.

PERSONALITY

I don't like to speak about me, so if you want to know more about who I am & what I do, feel free to read my previous guests' reviews or check this out: https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g189400-d6484932-Reviews-This_Is_My_Athens-Athens_Attica.html As you can see from my profile though, I'm an Urban Surfer, a Foodie & an Outdoor Enthusiast, so depending the city’s happenings & events, my spontaneous inspiration & current weather conditions, our meeting might include activities that I enjoy, such as eating & drinking, strolling & observing, hiking or biking etc.

WORK

I work daily until 17.00-18.00, so our meeting can take place between 19.00-22.00, around Athens' 5th district & the neighboring areas (green line metro station Ano Patisia). I'm more flexible during the weekends, so (if I'm here) we can meet earlier in the day.

EDUCATION

Culinary studies & F&B seminars. Training as a mountain SAR volunteer & as a volunteer forest fire fighter. Hosting & supporting the travelling community for more than a decade.

FAVORITE MOMENT IN ATHENS

When I escape from Athens...

Dimitris was great. He was a wealth of information, timely, and passionate about sharing with others and learning from them as well. He is a good listener. MyAthens is a novel experience and if you are lucky enough to be toured by Dimitris you will leave knowing more about Greece.

Visited Athens and had a tour with DIMITRIS T. in October 13, 2015
