the island of the pirates (fournoi greece)


Check out this beautiful drone video of a small Greek island called Fournoi, compliments of contributor Geokok.  Fournoi is part of Greece's North Aegean Region, a group of islands in the eastern Aegean Sea that are actually closer to mainland Turkey.  In the ancient world, the island was famous for its role in shipping throughout the region.   It is the site of many shipwrecks and at times was used as a base by pirates who preyed on what were once some of the world's busiest shipping lanes.
