Au programme

In my Forgotten Greece tour, I aim to show you a different, more atypical side of the country we all think we know. I wanted it to be about different perspectives and interpretations of its history, culture, and people : about local pride (and much prejudice), atavistic folly, fatal stubbornness, heroic desperation and often, abject abandonment. But it will still be about Greece, nevertheless – or at least the aspects of it that are not as well advertised. We will look for the difficulty, the indigestion in Greek history, culture, and reality – and through this process, perhaps we will arrive to another understanding, and a different appreciation of the country as it emerges today. To this end, I have created an alternative itinerary through the rugged southern region of Peloponnese : it’s a part of the country I am very familiar with, and my natural choice to explore and showcase. I have also put together a riveting narrative, that will take you through millennia of history and culture – some of it palatable, most of it not, and all of it bewildering. It will be a search for Greece’s true, and often contradictory, nature. Fairytale castles. Derelict factories. Ship graveyards. Secret bunkers. Ghost cities. Abandoned train stations. Places of death, darkness and memory : sounds interesting? Come along and find out for yourselves !

I am an urban storyteller : a fan of brutalist and mid-century architecture, a knowledgeable WW2 and Victorian era enthusiast, and I like engaging with abandoned spaces and forgotten history. I am the founder of www.explorabilia.co.uk, a travel company that helps people discover the most astonishing, off beat spaces hidden in plain sight around us ! I was born and raised in Greece, and have a personal familiarity and affinity with all the locations, landmarks, and histories in this tour. I am currently living in London, where I successfully host unique architecture and urban history walks. I welcome you to read my consistent 5* reviews on Airbnb. I've completed "Supporting the Safety of Women | Travelers & Hosts" seminar facilitated by the National Network to End Domestic Violence (May 6th, 2019)
