    Hello! We (Max (french) and Christina(greek/french)) live in a small village(10mins from Igoumenitsa) next to the sea in the northwest of Greece. We are a couple of 37 nd 38 years old living a self-sustainable life close to nature between birds and olive trees, in compagny of our dog Pantoufle and our cat Jerry.

    Max is passionate about restoring VW vans and other DIY artistique projects and windsurf.
    Christina, is passionate about learning new LANGUAGES and yoga. She is working from home as a Social Media Manager and Translator. She can also teach greek to every person that is interested.

    We love sailing and road trips. We have a van and a sailing boat so we can explore the country in different ways in our free time.
    Meeting new people and exchanging ideas is also something that we like.
