Ian and Barbara Gretton have been visiting Greece for more than two decades, travelling beyond the tourist trails and doing it all on public transport.
Their travels have taken them from the noise and bustle of the country’s capital, Athens, to quiet villages with just a few dozen inhabitants, from tiny islands in the Cyclades to picturesque fishing villages in the remotest parts of the mainland.
All Roams Lead To Rhodes tells the story of the routes they travelled, the people they met, the food they ate and the sites they experienced. It imbibes the reader with the sheer joy of independent travel – proving that age is no barrier to adventure.
Ian Gretton is a retired journalist living in Brighton. He loves to travel. Apart from the annual visit to Greece, Ian and his wife Barbara have travelled extensively in the USA (thirty-five states and counting), and throughout the rest of Europe. In recent years they have also seen much of South-East Asia and visited Australia and New Zealand last year.
