About the Author 作者简介

Celeste Brash:

Living on a remote coral atoll for five years with no phone, plumbing and limited solar electricity prevented Celeste from getting an early start in her writing career - although it sounds idyllic, washing laundry by hand, digging your own well and sustenance fishing takes a big chunk out of one's day. She now lives in a small village on Tahiti, complete with flushing toilet and an Internet connection, and her travel articles have magically crossed the seas to appear in newspapers and magazines including the LA Times and Islands Magazine. She has contributed to around 40 Lonely Planet guidebooks and her award winning travel narratives have been published in Travelers' Tales anthologies. Having travelled to some 40 countries, Celeste speaks fluent French as well as conversational Spanish, Thai and Indonesian.  In her spare time she can be found singing with a French Tahitian choral group, Tahitian dancing or distance swimming in Tahiti's spectacular lagoon. You can find Celeste on the web at www.celestebrash.com or read her blog at htpp://coconutradio.blogspot.com.                

Karla Zimmerman:

Karla lives in Chicago, where she eat doughnuts, yells at the Cubs, and writes stuff for books, magazines, and websites when she's not doing the first two things. She has contributed to 40-plus guidebooks and travel anthologies covering destinations in Europe, Asia, Africa, North America, and the Caribbean – all of which are a long way from the early days, when she wrote about gravel for a construction magazine and got to trek to places like Fredonia, Kansas. To learn more, follow her on Instagram and Twitter (@karlazimmerman).

Brendan Sainsbury:

Born and raised in the UK in a town that never merits a mention in any guidebook (Andover, Hampshire), Brendan spent the holidays of his youth caravanning in the English Lake District and didn’t leave Blighty until he was nineteen. Making up for lost time, he’s since squeezed 70 countries into a sometimes precarious existence as a writer and professional vagabond. His rocking chair memories will probably include staging a performance of ‘A Comedy of Errors’ at a school in war-torn Angola, running 150 miles across the Sahara Desert in the Marathon des Sables, and hitchhiking from Cape Town to Kilimanjaro with an early, dog-eared copy of LP’s Africa on a Shoestring. In the last eleven years, he has written over 40 books for Lonely Planet from Castro’s Cuba to the canyons of Peru. When not scribbling research notes, Brendan likes partaking in ridiculous ‘endurance’ races, strumming old Clash songs on the guitar, and experiencing the pain and occasional pleasures of following Southampton Football Club.

Ryan Ver Berkmoes:

Ryan Ver Berkmoes has written more than 110 guidebooks for Lonely Planet. He grew up in Santa Cruz, California, which he left at age 17 for college in the Midwest, where he first discovered snow. All joy of this novelty soon wore off. Since then he has been travelling the world, both for pleasure and for work—which are often indistinguishable. He has covered everything from wars to bars. He definitely prefers the latter. Ryan calls New York City home. Read more at ryanverberkmoes.com and at @ryanvb. Ryan’s first job was in Chicago at a small muckraking publication where he had the impressive title of Managing Editor because he was second on a two-person editorial staff and the first person was called Editor. After a year of 60-hour weeks, Ryan took his first trip to Europe, which lasted almost a year and confirmed his long-suspected wanderlust. Since then his byline has appeared in scores of publications and he’s talked travel on the radio and TV.

John Lee:

Born and raised in the historic UK city of St. Albans, John grew up in the lengthy shadow of London, finding as many opportunities as possible to gorge on the capital's rich diet of museums and galleries. Slowly succumbing to the lure of overseas exotica, he arrived on Canada's West Coast in 1993 to begin an MA in Political Science at the University of Victoria. Regular trips home to Britain ensued, along with stints living in Tokyo and Montreal, before he returned to British Columbia to become a full-time freelance writer in 1999.

Now living in Vancouver, John specializes in travel writing and has contributed to more than 150 different publications around the world. These include the Guardian, Independent, Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, Sydney Morning Herald, National Geographic Traveler and BBC.com. He also has a travel column in Canada's Globe and Mail national newspaper. You can read some of his stories (and see some of his videos) online at http://www.johnleewriter.com. John has worked on around 25 Lonely Planet books, including Canada, British Columbia, Western Europe, Vancouver and Europe on a Shoestring.

Ever-addicted to new experiences, John's favourite trips have included the Trans-Siberian Railway, trekking in New Zealand's Whirinaki rainforest and building his own igloo in the Canadian wilderness. He still has a strong affinity with the UK and visits several times a year to hit as many old pubs as possible, pick-up as much tea as his suitcase will allow and scoff as many bags of cheese and onion crisps as his body will take (47 is the current record).

Catherine Bodry:  
Brandon Presser:

After earning an art history degree from Harvard University and working at the Musee du Louvre, Brandon swapped landscape canvases for the real deal and joined the glamourous ranks of eternal nomadism. Today, Brandon works as a full-time freelance writer and photographer. He's penned over 40 guidebooks to far-flung destinations across the globe including:
Iceland Thailand Thailand's Islands & Beaches Estonia, Latvia & Lithuania New York City Japan Turkey Mauritius, Reunion & Seychelles Malaysia, Singapore & Brunei Canada Caribbean Islands Eastern Europe Europe on a Shoestring Southeast Asia on a Shoestring

Sarah Richards:

Loyal to the mountains and forests of her native BC, Sarah vowed never to love another Canadian province. But when she started her undergraduate degree at McGill University, a torrid love affair with Quebec's enticing French flavors threatened to break her ties with home forever.

After graduation, Sarah stumbled into writing in Japan, where she contributed to a number of magazines, newspapers, and travel guides. She has been frantically filling notebooks ever since, supporting her fiction work, her travel bug, and her pain au chocolat addiction with freelance travel writing and editing assignments.

Her journeys have taken her across dusty deserts on the Tibetan plateau, into fiery volcanos in rural Japan, and down the dank dungeons of Welsh castles. After living in Japan and England for five years, she has settled in Brooklyn, New York.
