Hello everybody! My name is Vanessa, I am from Athens and I am a social researcher / statistician, currently working 9-5.
I love travelling and meeting foreigners for as long as I can remember. I lived in London for several years, and have travelled to many European countries, USA, Latin America and the Middle East. I started hosting and showing people around Athens and Greece in 2006, and have been doing it ever since.
My purpose as a host is to help you have a great experience in Athens. You can be 100% independent if you prefer, but it would be my pleasure to spend time with you and tell you a little bit about Athens and life in Greece, especially during the crisis. I can teach you some Greek words to use during your trip here, and explain you a little bit about our music and our food. I can also give you tips for other places you are going to in Greece, and suggest the perfect island for you, depending on what you like. Finally, I am currently offering some tourist activities which we can discuss if you are interested.
Apart from Greek, I speak fluent English, quite good Italian, some French, some broken Spanish, and a tiny little bit of Brazilian Portuguese.
Looking forward to meeting you and explaining to you why my motto is "Why not?"
