The “Tourism Association of Molyvos” was created to improve existing tourism infrastructure in Molyvos and the surrounding area and to promote the unique natural and cultural and traditional offerings of the place while retaining its authentic character and emphasizing its “filoxenia”. We, the professionals in the tourism sector, as well as each citizen of the area who participates in this effort, welcome you to THE OTHER AEGEAN.

Steve Dudley is a British birder who has been visiting Lesvos annually since 2000 leading birding holidays and, in more recent years running days trips each spring for visiting birders.
His love of the island, birds, wildlife, food and people encouraged him to set up www.lesvosbirding.com to help visiting birders get more from their holidays, and to write A Birdwatching Guide to Lesvos – one of the best selling birding site guides in the world.
Steve has worked in birds, birding and ornithology all his life and currently runs the British Ornithologists’ Union. He’s also a consultant to several companies helping them with marketing and social media within the UK bird and wildlife watching communities.
He is married to Liz and they have a Spanish Water Dog called Jax.
Anastasios Sakoulis was born at Athens in 1966, but he springs from the small village Hioniades, Ipirus, northwestern Greece.He studied forestry at the Aristotle University of Thessaloniki and during his student years he got interested in studying wildlife and nature photography.All these years he worked for important bird conservation projects that gave him the oppurtunity to meet Greece’s natural beauties and biodiversity. The project that changed his life was the Life project for the Conservation of the Bearded Vulture at Greece that brought him at Crete. Today he is living on the island, since 1999, studying and photographing its nature.
Lesvos’ culture, nature and the people are a great inspiration for writers and so it is for me, a Dutch woman who has now lived for years on the island. I like to highlight daily life, customs, culinary treats, historical facts and so on, in a media that is both informative and entertaining.
