About me

I'm a volunteer for the City of Athens "This is my Athens" visitor greeter programme, through which tourists are paired with a local who shows them Athens through their perspective.

I've done more than 10 volunteer tours so far, and I've also had the chance to accompany two professional travel bloggers around Athens. Through this I think I've discovered a new calling, and I'm now trying to transition from my "normal" job (I'm a project manager in a telecoms company) to a job in tourism.

Why did you join the community?

I want to network with Athenians to find ways improve the city's travel profile
