Lonely Planet Titles

I have covered the Greek Islands for multiple editions of ‘Europe on a Shoestring’, ‘Western Europe’, ‘Mediterranean Europe’, and ‘Discover Europe’.


I have worked on multiple editions each of ‘Japan’ and ‘Hiking in Japan’.


I have covered Tonga and New Caledonia for multiple editions of LP’s ‘South Pacific’, ‘Rarotonga, Samoa & Tonga’ & ‘New Caledonia & Vanuatu’ guidebooks.

Of late I’ve been working on new editions of Hawaii, Discover Oahu and Pocket Honolulu.


In 2017, Yuriko & I headed off on Lonely Planet research to the Greek Islands, Switzerland and Sweden for three months – guidebooks on these destinations will be coming out in 2018.
