I've born in Crete. I'm married and mother of two children. I'm an optimistic person. I love the nature, the children, cycling, gardening, reading books, listening to classical, jazz and Latin American music, watching movies, swimming, sailing, hiking, bird-watching, doing meditation, travelling, making new friends.
