Bob Bowden

Bob spent his entire working life in Shipping and Forwarding and, from the late fifties, in Imports at the then busy port of Bristol, through the inception of containers and on into project shipping.

He has written for his own amusement for years and when he and his wife decided to give up their jobs in December 1999 and move to the Greek island of Karpathos in January 2000, he commenced writing snapshots detailing events in their everyday life, to inform and entertain family and friends.

Since finally returning to the UK in January 2015, Bob and his wife have continued to visit Karpathos every year and they maintain their treasured local friendships.
