5 things I cannot live without: sun, sea, flowers, my friends and coffee. I like travelling in Asia and visiting countries with different cultures than mine. I like social and psychological thriller movies and I prefer historical books. I like the theatre. I adore Hydra Island as well as my house. It is made with love, is a wonderful place to get some rest and I do everything possible to please my guests. My life motto is to live respecting the planet.
