Biographie de l'auteur
Andrea Schulte-Peevers has travelled the distance to the moon and back in her visits to around 70 countries, but she'll forever cherish the memory of first setting foot in Crete some 15 years ago and being instantly charmed by its people, the rich tapestry of their traditions and their long, proud history. Andrea lived in Bochum (Germany) and London before moving to Los Angeles, getting a degree from UCLA and embarking on a career in travel writing. She has written or contributed to some 60 Lonely Planet books, including the Greece guide. Her current home is Berlin. Chris Deliso was drawing maps of the Aegean by the age of five, and 20 years later he ended up in Greece white labouring away on an MPhil in Byzantine Studies at Oxford. Ever since studying Modern Greek in Thessaloniki in 1998, he has traveled frequently in Greece, including a year in Crete - more or less his spiritual home. For this book, Chris enjoyed healthy amounts of fresh fish, traditional music and sunburn on the island's remote beaches. Des Hannigan has been in and out of Crete for the past 20 years. Early visits were spent wandering the more remote mountains and south toast but were soon extended to the entire island. He has worked off and on in Greece for many years and has covered the Cycladic. lonian and Saronic Islands for Lonely Planet's Greece guide. He lives in the far west of sunny Cornwall, England - an almost-Crete, except for the troublesome Atlantic Ocean.
