Greece Travel Secrets

Donna Dailey

Donna Dailey writes on travel for newspapers and magazines worldwide, and for websites. Her work has won several prestigious travel writing awards, and she was recently runner-up as Travel Writer of the Year. She has also written or contributed to over 25 guidebooks for major travel publishers, including some with her husband Mike Gerrard. Between them, the two also write and publish this Greece Travel Secrets website, and another to one of their other favorite parts of the world, the Pacific Coast Highway on the west coast of the USA.

Donna's travels have taken her down the Rio San Juan into Nicaragua’s rain forest, across the Australian Outback, to ancient sites in Jordan and Tunisia, and to the game reserves of Kenya. She has hiked across the Rockies and the desert canyons of the American Southwest, and joined in music sessions in the pubs of Ireland and Scotland. Her appetite for food and drink stories has had her eating buffalo in Denver and billy goat in the Loire Valley, sipping sherry in Spain’s bodegas, and taken her from the gourmet restaurants of Paris to Valencia in search of the perfect paella.

Donna has a Journalism degree from the University of Northern Colorado. She speaks basic Spanish. Before moving to London she worked for US publications and in television. She has been a freelance travel writer and photographer since 1993, and has worked as a Managing Editor for Insight Guides.
