Biographie de l'auteur
After studying Russian history and politics during university.
Simon first visited the country in 1994 when he wandered
goggle eyed around gorgeous St Petersburg and peeked at
Lenin's mummified corpse in Red Square. He's since travelled
the breadth of the nation from Kamchatka in the Far East to
Kaliningrad in the far west, stopping off at many points
between. An award-winning writer and photographer, Simon
is the coauthor of Lonely Planet's Trans-Siberian Railway
editions 1, 2 and 3; Russia editions 3, 4 and 5: and many other
titles for the company, ranging from Cape Town to Korea.
