my name is Giota and welcome to my world. withGiota was created to share travel stories, inspire you to travel slowly and discover hidden destinations around the world.
My story has been nothing short of a rollercoaster. I grew up in 7 different countries... starting in Greece, through the Middle East, and all the way to New Zealand. After years of studying in the medical sciences, I was given the opportunity to continue with a full-ride scholarship to a PhD programme, and an offer in medical school.
Insert blue pill / red pill moment Matrix-style!
I decided to say no, to BOTH! I packed my stuff, and moved around the world for 2 years, building a travel company until.... insert... world pandemic! At the moment I am working on filmaking, building an SaaS product and exploring around New Zealand. There is no story ending yet, but I sure hope you are around for it!
