'It's Enough" Simply Symi Island, Greece is a personal memoir relaying how Ros was wrapped in warm Greek hospitality. Typifying a positive Greek lifestyle of love, laughter, sun, swimming, fishing, dancing, fun and freedom, she relished the experience amongst spectacular turquoise water and quaint houses painted in a pastel palette whilst overcoming run-ins with the local constabulary and a diabolical sleep-walking experience. Living a simple life she learnt to accept the Greek Orthodox Church's belief that 'we are simply passing through.'


Escape to Symi Island, Greece and accompany Ros, a single woman, living, learning and loving for six months on tiny, picture-perfect Symi. Tramp the hills and smell wild herbs, swim the turquoise waters, fish and sail the Aegean, ponder the island's history of sponge diving, wartime depredations and memories. View neo-classical architecture both ruined and restored and experience the Greek Orthodox Church's explosive Easter, name day ceremonies and weddings.
