Lonely Planet

Lonely Planet

I  began writing for Lonely Planet in 2007 and it has been one of the most  fulfilling professional challenges I have taken on. And with it comes an oddly  undeserved celebrity status and few more autograph requests than I’m used to  entertaining. Pure craziness. But it’s a privilege to be a part of one of the  world’s most inspiring travel brands. To purchase current  editions of guidebooks, check the Lonely Planet online shop.
