Antonis Gitsas - Other Activities
JM8+, 1998  

I like to spend my free time getting involved in creative things. Above all, I've been rowing since my youth, a sport that teaches you a lot about working hard on yourself, fitting well into a team and that you can only be successful together.

Ister Linz

  • 39 countries, obtaining new perspectives each and every time.
  • Although I prefer the sea to the mountains, my grandfather's village, Iliochori (Hλιοχώρι), is always an oasis. It is a small village in the Ioannina area, shortly after Tsepelovo. There you can find a spectacular double waterfall and a plane-tree whose perimeter is over 10 m. It also offers a very dark sky for observing the southern and eastern night sky.
