Tobias has lived for more than 15 years on Methana in Greece, participated in many scientific and tourism-developing projects such as the geologic and topographic mapping of the Methana peninsula, or the Geowarn project on Nisyros. Better than almost anyone else, he not only knows the geology of the Greek volcanic areas, but also their rich flora, fauna, geography, as well as history, archeology, culture and people.
