A few words about Giota

Hi! I am Giota, and welcome to my little corner of the internet! Here you will find articles and videos, about all the things that make me happy. Things like traveling, documenting these travels with my camera, the random thoughts and epiphanies of life on the road, and the lifestyle experiments and results that spark from all of the above.

My mission is to make the most of this wonderful thing called life. I spent my early childhood in Greece, or Hellas, where I am from. And what a perfect spot to be born in, my love for history, good food, and wholesome interactions with people is 100% in line with the hellenic spirit.

My teenage years where scattered in between Romania, Turkey, Lebanon, Jordan, and New Zealand. So I am a true third culture kid, although I like to think a strong case can be made for seventh-culture kid. After spending 5 years studying in New Zealand, I had the amazing opportunity of going to medical school to become a doctor, or continuing my research in the medical sciences with a full-ride PhD scholarship.... Nothing like everything going in your favour to jolt your wold! 

I chose to say no to both these amazing opportunities and give this nomadic/ entrepreneurial/ alternative/ crazy other lifestyle a chance. A chance to do something I love everyday and be able to live off it.

I don't know how my story goes for here on... but I want to take you along! I am starting on my journey as a Youtuber and content creator, and I sincerely hope it adds value and fun to the day of everyone that is watching!

Lot's of love,
Giota

Frequently Asked Questions

Where do you live? 

Tough question! In the last year alone I lived in Greece (Athens), Hungary (Budapest) and New Zealand (Auckland). My goal is to keep building a lifestyle and business that is 100% location independent and allows me to work and travel full-time. I love central Europe and the access it gives to some of the best sights in the world, and would love to have a more permentant base there.

What are you favorite destinations? 

Greece has a special place in my heart, as I was born there, and I truly believe you could spend your whole life exploring its islands, and mountains and you would still find something jaw-dropping and unexpected. I believe every destination is unique if you take the time to immerse yourself in the rhythm of its philosophy and that's why I prefer to travel slowly and mindfully.
