Co-founder/Adventure Travel Operations
Panagiotis was born in 1985 in Athens, Greece. His studying background begins with a Bachelor of Science in Mathematics at the National and Kapodestrian University of Athens followed by a Master in Tourism Destination Management at Breda University of Applied Sciences, The Netherlands.
A passionate traveler with a strong interest in tourism geography, ethnic cultures, worldwide environmental issues and sustainability in tourism development, Panagiotis has visited 30 countries across 4 continents. He has participated in tourism field research at international destinations such as Sydney, Australia, Chiang Mai, Thailand and Bali, Indonesia, as well as having conducted individual research on ecotourism at his country of origin.
Early 2014, he decided to combine his tourism background with his appreciation of Greek traditional culture and beautiful landscapes, creating - along with Stavros - Bearing True South, a project that invites travelers to explore the 'off the beaten track' parts of Greece.
