Travel writer Lara Dunston
has authored, contributed to and updated some 50+ guidebooks for Lonely Planet, Rough Guides, Dorling Kindersley, Footprint, AA Guides, Fodors, Insight, Thomas Cook and Hedonist's Guides, and published travel articles in magazines, newspapers and websites around the globe, from Wanderlust to Get Lost. A perpetual globetrotter, Dunston has experienced over 60 countries since she and her photographer husband started travelling together in the late 1980s. Based out of the Middle East since 1998, the couple have literally lived out of their suitcases since 2006. From 2010 to 2011, they circled the globe on a contemporary grand tour, a personal experiment in slow and sustainable travel, local travel, and experiential travel that they called Grantourismo. They chronicle about those adventures on their blog grantourismotravels.com
