About Jos Simon

Born and raised in Pwllheli on the Llyn Peninsula, Jos Simon ventured into the world beyond Snowdonia as an LSE student in mid-60s swinging London. Having married a Greek, he embarked on a teaching career in various parts of the UK, his life enriched by Greek in-laws, Greek food and Greek holidays. Early retirement brought new challenges as a freelance travel writer, specialising (of course) in stories about Greece. As a result of continued Hellenic touring, with children, then alone, then with grandchildren, writing about Greece for UK magazines, and researching this book, he has come to feel like an honorary Greek.
