About

I am Evan Panagopoulos : an urban storyteller, an avid fan of brutalist and mid-century architecture, and a knowledgeable researcher of 20th century conflict. I have a knack for rediscovering forgotten and unseen places hiding in plain sight, and passionate about uncovering their forgotten stories. I engage with abandoned spaces and obscure history through writing, photography, podcasts, videos, and authentic local experiences such as guided walks and tours. 

I enjoy transforming interesting narratives into fully accessible travel experiences, using both physical and audiovisual formats. I am turning interesting blog posts into podcasts, or live streams, and vice versa. Popular walks and tours into audio guides, or 3D videos. How about infusing these with historic recipes, forgotten sounds and smells, or contemporary objects?  At the heart of it all, there are powerful stories that demand to be told in the broadest possible sensory spectrum. The aim is to create experiences that can truly come to life, meet the needs of a broader audience, and ultimately, transcend the established concepts of travel. 

Supporting me through Patreon means that I will be able to continue my quest for alternative travel experiences with less crowds, more accessibility, a lighter environmental footprint, and an abundance of social sensibility. You can buy me a coffee, if you like some of my content. Or think of  becoming a more regular contributor, unlocking a number of exclusive perks, discounts, content and previews. Or you could become a major donor, collaborating with me in ambitious projects.
