Born (March 1983) and raised in Evia. She grew up in Aliveri until she got 18 years old, before moving to Kavala in North Greece. She has studied Oil & Gas Engineering but she has never practiced what she studied. There is no such a job market in Greece! She has spent 4 years (2007-2011) working as a Quality Control Analyst in a winery near Chalkida.
Getting bored and even angry with her job, her employer and her supervisor, she decided to take a long step and make her little dream come true. She was always dreaming to travel around the world. However, she never thought she could make it happen by meeting a like-minded person, selling almost everything, buying a second-hand car and leaving her family, friends and routine without having fulfilled the two greatest accomplishments that every Greek woman has to: getting married & having a Big Fat Greek Family! She cooks GREAT, she is a genuine giver, she knows how to keep everything clean, neat and tidy, she is doing her best on navigation and she only starts complaining when she is hungry or tired. She is a very easy going person as long as you keep her mind busy with stuff of her interest but she gets really upset when she deals with liars. Did I mention that she is very sensitive?
Born (April 1983) and raised in Chalkida, Evia. He has studied Economics in Athens (BSc in Economics) and holds a Master degree in Engineering Business Management at the University of Warwick. After serving his compulsory military service in the Greek Navy, he decided to deep dive into the exciting corporate world and pursue a high-profile career as a line manager. He used to be a specialist in Warehouse & Logistics Management and he managed to change four different companies in 5 years just because he had nothing to give or take after a year or so in each of them. Too much competition, too much strategy, too much politics, too much policies, too much shit to deal with!
He likes travelling but most important he loves meeting new people & new cultures, blending in with locals, walking in their houses, being invited in food fiestas and exchanging opinions about the world. He hates any social contract and commitment that has to do with marriage, tolls across public highways, taxes, national elections and the Greek modern lifestyle. While growing up, he realized that he could not wait for the next public holiday or summer vacations in order to see the world. Unfortunately, terms like “gap year” or “sabbatical” are unknown in the Greek Labour Law. So, he took the decision to quit his job and set free. Visiting Africa was a decent exchange for his much-wanted freedom but he never thought that his aspiration would be eventually aligned to Georgia’s dream to travel around the world. In April 2012, he embarked on this epic trip and travelives since then.
