This multithreaded story centered around a tale of mythic dimensions is an introduction to the geography and culture of Zagori, a mountainous enclave in Northern Greece. Through visual and textual snapshots of the landscape, architecture and people, the audience is invited to construct a story about a local legend while discovering aspects of Zagori's extraordinary history and legacy.

"Traveling in Zagori" was developed in Dexter 1.0, an authoring tool created at the Media Lab by Michael Murtaugh.
