My name is Georgi and so far I have guided hundreds of tourists in Greece and not only! 🙂
I was graduated from Classical High School for Ancient Languages and Cultures in Sofia, Bulgaria.
After that, I received my bachelor’s degree studying Balkan Studies, followed by my master’s in Cultural Tourism at Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”.
Besides my scholar achievements, I have always loved travelling around!
The first time I visited Greece was back in 2004. I was fortunate to be chosen to take part in Greek language and culture programs in 3 different Greek universities. Moreover, I had the chance to work as a history teacher for a while, and after that – as a Greek language teacher for several years in a row.
In 2013, I started working as a tour guide. That experience enriched me enormously as I managed to visit and tour in more than 12 countries across Europe, but it did also prove to me that I feel most comfortable on the Balkans, more particularly in Greece indeed.
Furthermore, I adore the Greek blue sea. When I talk to the Greeks, I feel super happy as this is the best way to learn from the locals and understand their culture.
Having said all above, it turns out that I have worked for Greeks, with Greeks, and even in Greece. And what is even more interesting here, is the fact that although I have been in constant contact with the Greeks and Greece for the last 15 years, yet I continue to discover new things about them! Still, too be honest – most of the Greeks have been extremely kind and helpful to me so far, but on the contrary – some of them have unfortunately also lied to me as well.
In my Blog for Greece I do my best to share my experience, but I will be even happier if I manage to turn it into some kind of Greece-related forum, where we can be of any help to each other.
Last, but not least, it is worth mentioning that I very much like being active and playing miscellaneous sports but most of all – I love to laugh and have fun. I truly believe that it is up to all of us to make the world a better place and each of us can contribute, as long as they want to!
