Biographie de l'auteur

Cuando no está escribiendo sobre su destino favorito en la Patagonia, Carolyn intenta visitar países tropicales. En los últimos años ha contribuido en más de una docena de guías Lonely Planet. También ha escrito para National Geographic, Outside y Lonely Planet Magazine entre otras muchas publicaciones.

Mara viajó por primera vez al extranjero en 1988. Como estudiante, veraneó en los Países escandinavos y realizó un viaje a la Unión Soviética que le inspiró a aprender ruso. Más adelante, viajó alrededor del mundo gracias a una beca de investigación sobre proyectos de desarrollo internacional de la Circumnavigators’ Foundation. Volvió a Rusia donde enseñó inglés durante un año en Kiev, Ucrania, y durante los tumultuosos años de la transición, trabajó en un proyecto de ayuda extranjera en Yekaterinburg, Rusia. Escribe regularmente para Lonely Planet en las guías de Belice, Costa Rica y Rusia, así como las de Nueva Inglaterra, lugar donde reside en la actualidad.

Afincada en Chicago, escribe artículos de viajes para periódicos, libros, revistas y webs como: The National Geographic Traveler, National Public Radio, BBC, Chicago Tribune o Time Out Chicago. Ha viajado a más de 55 países y ha colaborado en guías Lonely Planet de EE UU, Canadá, el Caribe y Europa.

Adam Skolnick es un angelino de tercera generación, nacido y criado en LA. Su familia se trasladó del centro a Boyle Heights, en el Fairfax District, y, durante el curso del siglo pasado, se instaló finalmente en Santa Mónica. Periodista freelance, escribe sobre viajes, cultura, salud, deporte y medio ambiente para Lonely Planet, Men’s Health, Outside, Travel & Leisure y Spa. Es asimismo autor y coautor de nueve guías anteriores de Lonely Planet y, cómo no, de unos cuantos guiones aún por vender. Vive en Santa Mónica y Bali, pero cada vez siente más apego por el centro y Echo Park.

Greg empezó en el periodismo como editor jefe del famoso Bolivian Times informando sobre narcotráfico, crímenes contra los derechos humanos y el ambiente de los numerosos bares y discotecas del país. Experto escritor de viajes, ha colaborado en medios de comunicación como son Newsweek, The Washington Post, BBC Radio, Rick Steve’s Radio y Let’s Travel Radio y en las revistas National Geographic Traveler, Conde Naste Traveller y Wild Blue Yonder. Ha escrito docenas de guías para Lonely Planet sobre países de toda Sudamérica.

Ha escrito y colaborado en unos 30 títulos de Lonely Planet. En su tercera incursión para explorar Malasia para Lonely Planet, vió primates, subió montañas, aguantó el tipo en juegos alcohólicos con expatriados y flotó boca arriba río abajo en media de la selva virgen...  'If we ever meet on the road, let’s share a drink and a story'.  (Adam Karlin)

Como escritor y periodista gráfico dedicado a las culturas tradicionales, Michael supo que había encontrado un filón cuando llegó a Gujarat, cruzando el estado de camino a aldeas tribales remotas. En Uttarakhand, ha migrado al Himalaya junto a pastores nómadas de búfalos de agua y se ha unido a los fieles en peregrinaciones por las montañas. Las historias fascinantes allí vividas y las amistades forjadas le hacen volver una y otra vez a la India. Ha escrito y fotografiado para The New York Times, The Christian Science Monitor Magazine, The International Herald Tribune, Wend o Geographical Magazine.

Ryan Ver Berkmoes vivió durantes tres años en Fráncfort, donde trabajó como editor de una revista hasta que su carrera cambió de rumbo y empezó a trabajar en Lonely Planet. Desde 1997 ha participado en más de 90 títulos.

Christopher dedicó sus primeros años universitarios a estudiar poesía clásica china hasta que una semana en el Shanghái de los noventa cambió abruptamente su visión de las idiosincrasias de la China moderna. Tras varios años de estudio de los caracteres chinos, regresa a menudo para sumergirse en el que es uno de los idiomas más fascinantes del mundo. Escritor, editor y traductor freelance, vive en París desde el 2001 y es autor, coautor y colaborador de varias guías Lonely Planet.

HASH(0x9153d204) étoiles sur 5 Hit or miss -- a real mixed bag ... 26 juin 2014
Par L. Mountford - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I've used the Lonely Planet guides for years, and they're usually quite good. And I LOVE taking road trips, so anything that helps with planning is a good thing.

This new release from LP is quite good in certain areas, and not so good in others. It's clear there were multiple authors with very different approaches/insights. Some chapters are filled with towns and attractions that are "off the beaten path," or less obvious; others contain the same old tired tourist traps, with no real new and exciting places to go and things to see.

I decided to check out the treatment of places I'm most familiar with: Pacific NW (specifically WA state), California (specifically northern CA), and the Great Plains. I grew up in the midwest, live in CA for 28 yrs, and now call the Pacific NW home.

The good stuff: the Pacific NW section is good, as far as it goes. It doesn't include a lot of "trips," but the included trips are detailed enough, and include enough esoteric info to make them standouts. The Cascade Drive and the Olympic Peninsula Loop are filled with enough detail to keep one occupied for 4 or 5 days (and I've done both of these trips).

The Great Plains trips are likewise detailed enough to spark interest. Again, there aren't very many trips, and nothing, really, in Iowa (where I can personally recommend a day or two in the Amana Colonies), but the ones that are presented are quite good.

The California section was a definite let-down. On the Pacific Coast Highways trip, for example, virtually every "highlight" is a well-known tourist mecca (Golden Gate Park? Hearst Castle? Monterey Bay Aquarium? really? Nothing new here ...). Even the more detailed San Francisco, Marin and Napa Loop contains very little that you couldn't find on the AAA website. I really wanted to see more "discoveries," not the same old stuff that's been written about in popular travel guides.

For the serious road tripper, I would invest instead in more localized guides at the regional, state, or city level. I can definitely vouch for the Lonely Planet guides Lonely Planet Washington, Oregon & the Pacific Northwest (Travel Guide), Lonely Planet Yosemite, Sequoia & Kings Canyon National Parks (Travel Guide), and Lonely Planet British Columbia & the Canadian Rockies (Travel Guide), as I've used all three of these to plan trips. FIgure out where you want to go, and get the local or regional Lonely Planet guide for that area, and I think you'll be happier.

This book works as an overview; not as a detailed trip planner.

HASH(0x9160ef48) étoiles sur 5 More breadth than depth for road trip planning, a starting point, you will need additional research. 7 juillet 2014
Par ZenWoman - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
Summer is the time for road trips so I got this book to plan a few down West Coast. This book divides up the country into a few sections like - New York and the Mid Atlantic, New England, Florida and South, Great Lakes, Great Plains, Rocky Mountains, The Southwest, California and Pacific Northwest. I am pretty familiar with some regions since I've already gone on some road trips and found although this book covers the breadth of USA it does not have much depth. I studied some of the itineraries of Pacific Northwest, California and Florida and found that it ignored some great spots to suggest some lesser known vacation spots that are not as scenic or interesting.

If the idea is to see the best a state or region has to offer than simply stopping at many cities on the way, you will have to pick and choose from the suggested stops along each trip. For instance the Cascade Drive in Washington state is suggested as a 4-5 day road trip. If one was visiting from out of state I would suggest that they spend maybe 1-2 days on a scenic spot from the Cascade Drive but also visit the beautiful wild coast, the rain forests, and the San Juan Islands, pretty easily accomplished in 5 days. Similarly the Olympic Peninsula loop drive ignores Seattle completely and starts in Olympia - the capital city, but why make the extra drive if you're interested in nature? Most people flying in would prefer starting from Seattle going to some of the points like Ruby Beach, the Hoh Rain Forest, Port Angeles and back and maybe use the remaining time (2 days) to see Seattle sights or drive out to Cascades.
Similarly the highway 1 trip down Florida coast could be much shorter and one need not stop at all the cities - instead spend more time in the ones that offer more to see or even make a side trip to Disney or Universal in Orlando. This book is therefore a good starting point that lays out the maps, gives you best seasons to visit and some suggestions about what to do in each city. It needs to be supplemented with a lot of research from TripAdivsor and other sites and more guidebooks devoted specifically to the region for a full itinerary.

HASH(0x929de438) étoiles sur 5 Do not order the Kindle Version until fixed. 14 avril 2014
Par K. Geiter - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
According to the product description, you should have the following features available on your Kindle for this guide book:

Downloadable PDF and offline maps prevent roaming and data charges
Effortlessly navigate and jump between maps and reviews
Add notes to personalize your guidebook experience
Seamlessly flip between pages
Bookmarks and speedy search capabilities get you to key pages in a flash
Embedded links to recommendations' websites
Zoom-in maps and images
Inbuilt dictionary for quick referencing

You get NONE of that. You can't even bring up the settings toolbar along the top to navigate through, make notes, comments, bookmarks, etc. It's also only in landscape mode. It will not toggle between landscape/portrait as you move your device. I have sent an email to Amazon and will be returning and requesting a refund. Per the other review at the time of my purchase, I don't think it's just me having issues.

I have purchased a previous Lonely Planet Guide for my Kindle and loved the ease it provided with traveling versus having a physical book to thumb through. I travel all the time and have begun to enjoy the Kindle for this purpose. However, this book is not made to be electronic. I think if you really want it, looks potentially great in hard copy, so I would consider that over the e-version.

HASH(0x929de3a8) étoiles sur 5 Get Your Kicks on Route 66, and Route 1, and Skyline Drive, and . . . 22 mai 2014
Par Ann Elliot - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
This travel guide, with nearly 700 pages of information and suggestions, contains both too much and too little. While ambitiously covering short trips (1-14 days) in areas spanning the nation, not a great deal of depth can be devoted to individual drives.

The book provides a good starting point and offers excellent options, but a traveler shouldn't just pick up the guidebook and set off across country without doing a great deal of research first.

I looked carefully at the trip closest to home and found that the guide listed places to see that were great choices, well known to locals and with appeal to a wide range of travelers.

The food and lodging sections consist of very few possibilities - a sort of scattershot assortment, one or two per trip, of cabins, camping, B&Bs and good hotels with drive-ins, diners, bakeries and family restaurants. All were middle-of-the-road choices and readers should research other options to fit individual tastes and budgets.

We live, work and travel full-time in a motorhome while exploring the USA. A friend bought me a Lonely Planet guide to road trips in the Pacific North West last year and we loved and used it so much we keep buying them for different areas of the country. The books are very well laid out - visually appealing with lots of color photographs, color coding and excellent driving / walking trip maps and suggestions. Also love the trip highlights section which we find to be mostly very accurate - only a couple of places we felt should have been highlights that weren't marked as such by Lonely Planet... This is our go-to book for visiting new areas, handy for trip planning in advance or on-the-go (which is mostly what we end up doing). Much of our preferred way of seeing new places is by driving in our MINI convertible, so Road Trips and beautiful highways/back roads are the things that most appeal to us - this book hits the spot. Well done Lonely Planet!
