Short CV: “Andrew P. Sykes was born and grew up in the small town of Elland, in the foothills of the Pennines in West Yorkshire. He studied for a degree in mathematics at the University of York and immediately after graduation, went to work in London for a firm of city accountants. The world of auditing was not, however, for him and in 1993, he left the UK to go and work in France, initially in the tourist industry and then for four years teaching English in the Loire Valley city of Tours. He returned to the UK in 1999 to train as a secondary school teacher of French at the University of Reading. He still lives in the town and can currently be found working as the Head of Modern Languages at a secondary school in South Oxfordshire. You may well spot him each morning and evening during term time, cycling to work through the picturesque countryside that lies between the Thames Valley towns of Reading and Henley-on-Thames.” Συνέχεια ανάγνωσης …on a Bike Called Reggie…
Γνώρισα τον Κωνσταντίνο Γιαννόπουλο μέσα από την κοινή μας αγάπη για την αναρρίχηση. Τα τελευταία χρόνια όμως, ο Κώστας ασχολήθηκε με το ορεινό τρέξιμο και δεν βλεπόμαστε αρκετά. Όσο και να μου λείπει η παρέα του στο βουνό, τον καταλαβαίνω γιατί φαίνεται να έχει μεγάλο ταλέντο σε αυτό που κάνει! Η συνέντευξη αυτή ήταν η ευκαιρία να τον γνωρίσω καλύτερα.
