A minute with Life & Style

A minute with Dimos Christodoulidis Teacher of Hotel courses at 3rd Technical School in Limassol who recently broke the Guinness World record for headers


Where do you live?
In Limassol with my family: wife, daughter and son

Best childhood memory?
Picking figs from our huge fig tree in our back yard!!

Most frequented restaurant and absolute favorite dish?
Fat fish in Limassol. My absolute favorite dish is Bonito tartare with sardine fish eggs and wakame sea weed as a starter, and grilled Rock fish as a main course.

What food would you really turn your nose up to?
I would really turn my nose up to any kind of cooked liver. I just hate the smell and taste.

What did you have for breakfast?
Bran flakes with rice milk and dark chocolate chips

Would you class yourself as a day or night person? What’s your idea of the perfect night/day out?
I class myself as a day person. My idea of the perfect day out is a long walk by the sea, and a refreshing swim. I would end by perfect day with dinner at Fat Fish restaurant.

Best book ever read?
Restaurant Success by the Numbers. I like the tips and guide for successful long lasting restaurants.

Favorite film of all time?
Titanic because it kept me anxious at every single moment.

Favourite holiday destination? What’s your dream trip?
Skiathos island in Greece. The combination of pine trees and crystal clear water is just amazing!! My dream trip is spending a week at Rio de Janeiro

What music are you listening to in the car at the moment?
Latin music

What is always in your fridge?
All kinds of fruits

Dream house: rural retreat or urban dwelling? Where would it be, what would it be like?
A simple house by a lonely beach. For me is the best place to relax and clear your mind from all negative thoughts!

If you could pick anyone at all (alive or dead) to go out for the evening with, who would it be?
Whitney Houston because I think she had the best voice of all singers.

Guiness record photoIf the world is ending in 24 hours what would you do?
I would gather all the people close to me like my family and good friends and tell them I love them and ask people for forgiveness for anything I might have done that was not right.

What is your greatest fear?
My greatest fear is that I am powerful beyond measure.

Tell me a joke
Make headers not war!!


On October 3 Dimos and his brother Renos broke the Guinness World Record for ‘Most head to head passes by a pair’. The brothers, aged 54 and 50, managed 1,013 headers, smashing the current record held by Pakistan’s Daniel Gill and Qamar Rizwan who managed 335 headers in October 2012.

A professional sports referee and coach were recorded the Limassol brothers’ attempt and they are now waiting official validation from the Guinness authorities within three months.
Both football fans, the brothers have been passing headers to each other since their early teens.
