Evangelos was born in the Byzantine mountain city of Veria, in Northern Greece. Since his early childhood, he loved skiing, hiking, travelling, visiting museums and archaeological sites. He studied Italian literature and language and history of art in Florence, Italy. During his university years he started guiding school groups from all around Europe on visits to Florence. After graduating, he worked for various Greek and foreign travel agencies and he travelled all around the globe. He also started sailing.
Building on the experience he gathered along the way, he decided to create BOREAS Art & Nature Travel Services, an agency which would address people who, like himself, want to “live”, to experience, the places they visit, to appreciate their cultural and natural beauties, and who demand excellent travel services!
