Europe Product Manager
Simon Clifford grew up in South Devon, spending his childhood holidays no further than the local beach, before spreading his wings to explore almost 100 countries across the world. Europe is his real passion; its history and culture, mountains and beaches, never cease to fascinate him. As European Product Manager at the world’s longest established travel company, Cox and Kings, his travels have taken him to Russia on several occasions. Simon has travelled far beyond the usual Moscow to St Petersburg route, exploring many of the lesser known city’s as well as experiencing rural life in this vast nation. Highlights include riding the Trans-Siberian railway, enjoying the World Cup cities of Kazan and Nizhny Novgorod and following the last journey of the Romanov Family, all the way to the small house where they met their fate 100 years ago.
