About Nicholas Kontis

Nicholas Kontis was born in Greece on one of the most breathtakingly beautiful islands in the world, Santorini. He was brought up in the cultural capital of the Americas, San Francisco. From a very young age, he developed a passion for travel as he shuttled between Athens and his California home during summer vacations. After a 13 month trip around the world, Nick launched the first successful travel agency in the United States that specialized in discount around-the-world airfares. Today, Nick is an award-winning travel journalist who writes for numerous travel publications. Nick's first book is titled: “Going Local – Experiences and Encounters on the Road.” He still calls San Francisco home, while also spending time in the Napa Valley, Greece and Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.
