As Euclid said, the laws of nature are but the mathematical thoughts of God. So, maybe the reason I developed an inclination to mathematics is because I was so connected to the earth since my childhood. 

I grew up in the Greek island of Chios, an island renowned for the mastic trees in its southern part and the plethora of products that derive from it. My grandfather is one of the oldest growers in the island and I remember myself assisting him in the cultivation of mastiha. As a child, I was paying close attention on how tenderly he was cutting the tree in order to make it ‘cry’ and collect its tears. From the ‘tears of the mastic trees’ comes the famous mastiha, which is the oldest chewing gum in the world. Then, he made me count his ‘cuts’ to each of his mastic trees and that’s actually my first memory of learning how to count. Since then, mathematics became a game of logic between me and my grandfather, who is still the greatest mathematician I’ve ever met. “There is always logic behind nature” I remember him saying to me “and the only way to become a good mathematician is to observe nature with your eyes wide open”. 

Leaving my beloved island and coming to Athens was a huge change for me. It was so hard for me to live in a city that never sleeps, full of noise and movement. The only thing I could bring with me was my love for numbers. So, I let this passion ‘grew’ inside me, the same way as my grandfather grows his mastic trees. I studied Finance as I knew that this would be the ideal career path for me based on my inherent inclination to mathematics. I miss my island a lot, but at least I am happy that every summer I am going back to Chios to help my grandfather in the mastiha cultivation and...in keeping his accounting books in good shape!

In 2010, the Greek crisis hit and the country went into freefall. I was left without a job, a car or even medical insurance, and there was little perspective of finding a new job any time soon.

I remember when I was about 17, my friend asked me what my plans for life were. Sincerely, I had no clue. I had some scattered images in my head of how I imagine myself. Like photographs.

The French poet Arthur Rimbaud once wrote that "Eternity is the sea mingled with the sun " and I guess there' s a little bit of truth of that in me.

I am a fan of poetry. Poems have the ability to paint a picture in just a few words… especially while traveling.

There is a theory that claims that your name determines who you are. Antigone, the famous heroine of a Greek tragedy, defied the rules and for that she faced death.

Awards & Accolades

Testimonials

"We were able to get a good sense of the city as well as make some good connections with a variety of shops and eateries that we returned to later on. Diana was an amazingly energetic guide, very engaging and accommodating. Bring comfy shoes and an open mind and you will have an unforgettable day in Athens :)"

Boris S-California

"Our guide Nadia was amazing. Her narrative was engaging, and she made sure everything we saw came alive. Going through these sites without her storytelling would not have been even 5% as much fun."

NirajRanjanRout

"We had an incredible day in Athens. This ended up being the best day of our 2.5 week vacation across Rome, the Greek Islands, Naples, and Sicily. I'm really impressed with this company and have already recommended them to all of my friends and family."
