  • Descrição


    Hey, I'm Spyros and I live in Corfu an island in western Greece. After working for 10 years in Corfu I decided in early 2020 to move to Japan for a couple of years but covid struck!!!

    Currently stuck in Corfu I'm hoping to find easy going people that can teach me the following:

    Kendo, I practiced that for a while when I was at uni and loved it but since I moved to Corfu I haven't done anything as there are no kendokas here, hoping to find someone to teach me the nessecary skills to pass 1st dan.

    Being a fan of Japanese culture I have also studied a bit of Japanese so a native or a non native fluent speaker would be great. Languages are my hobby (half my degree was in the linguistic department), and I enjoy all aspects of language learning.

    Last but not least, I'm looking for someone that could teach me how to play the violin. Bought one , plus a teach yourself guide , but it doesn't seem to work:))

    I've practiced tai chi in the past and I have an interest in reiki, yoga and qigong so I'd like to meet people who can help me with these. The above stands of all forms of fitness training and martial arts so if have a skill to teach I'd be very happy to hear from you.

    In return I offer accommodation, (private room) , share homemade organic meals and also Greek or English language practice (studied at a UK Uni).

    I work as a jeweller/antiques restorer, and I do quite a lot of work with crystals and gemstones so if you have an interest or ability in this field, I could share my knowledge with you.

    I have been a member of Couchsurfing for over a decade.

    Thanks for reading and I wish you all the best with your travels!

    You will have the opportunity to experience corfiot culture first hand, live in one of the most beautiful greek islands, practice languages. In in addition I'm a keen hiker, so while you're here you'll explore and see the best places that Corfu has to offer.
