image Adventures of Hobbes: Visiting a Fishing Village

Hobbes snaps a picture in front of Panagiouda, a small fishing village on Lesvos Island, Greece. Panagiouda was settled in the 19th century after an earthquake destroyed much of nearby the nearby village Afalonas.


After starting as a resettlement, Panagiouda is continually evolving. The initial residents made it into a fishing village, though later it became a popular distance for Greece’s wealthy to have a holiday home. Since the secret of its beauty and mild weather got out, it attracted many tourists, but after the refugee crisis struck in 2015 it’s become a popular spot for international volunteers to sleep, wine, and dine.
