About me

River No 2 Beach Sierra Leone

Welcome to my blog. My name is Jorgo (for the Greeks Giorgo), abroad they call me George most of the time. I am a travel addict but rather choose unusual destinations. When I tell others where I am planning to go they frown most of the time. “Don’t go” or “It’s dangerous” are typical responses I get. While many people make up their opinions from the news, I prefer to stay curious and think out of the box. So far this created a lot of rewarding experiences for me. I share you my experience in several countries, I am not here to discuss politics however.

As a frequent traveller I prefer to get the most comfort, this is why I started chasing Star Alliance status since 2018. I also use IHG loyalty program to get the best out of my stays.

My first solo trip and Couchsurfing experience outside Europe was Kenya back in 2013. Since then I’ve started travelling frequently. I am also hobby photographer and if I have the chance to do some urban exploring when travelling, I will take that opportunity for sure.

Interested in points redemption and award flights? Read “Status & Miles“.

Wonder how many flights I already took this year?

Do not use my photos without permission. On very rare occassions I use photos from Pixabay.com, free stock photos if I need it to show a place I was but did not manage to take a good picture or I might use it as a comparison. Generally, over 99% of the pictures are mine.
