From New York City to Greece: Peter Despotopoulos’ Right Move

The COVID-19 pandemic has held down a lot of people's careers and made others move, even to other countries to become digital nomads and find a different life.

Peter Despotopoulos changed his, said CNBC in a feature about people making life and career moves. He went from New York, were he was Vice-President and Managing Partner of a custom millwork shop to Athens' southern coast.

“I decided to move because I was genuinely unhappy there. I always felt drained and exhausted. I hated my job and line of work,” he told the site, adding he was worn out by the exorbitant cost of living in The Big Apple.

He lived on the Long Island City/Astoria border, paying $2500 rent for a one-bedroom apartment and another $2,000 in fixed expenses.

So he traded tickets to the Knicks, fine dining, and concerts for the upscale neighborhood of Voula, right near the beach, where he has a pool and a short walk to the beach.

His rent and fixed expenses are half of New York and now he works as a marketing director for the U.S. home furnishings website Moro.
