More About the Author

My love of travelling first distilled within me before I had never even left my native Scotland. My Dad used to take me down to Princes Street Gardens where I would gaze at the trains rumbling in and out of Edinburgh Waverley. During school holidays I was spirited off to the Scottish islands and weaned on stories of my Dad's adventures in the yacht he built himself: Sisu. It was not until 1986 that I made it abroad and until 1992 that I flew for the first time, but since then I have made up for it with 500+ trips to over 80 countries.

My travel-writing career kicked off in 1997 when, with the help of a local enterprise grant, I started my business. In 1999 I moved to London where for four years I built up my contacts and markets in a city that quickly became one giant departure lounge for me with 20+ trips a year to destinations all over the world. In 2003 I moved back north and set-up a new base on the outskirts of Edinburgh, handy for both international forays and domestic trips around Scotland, a country that still remains my favourite on the planet.

In over a decade of travels I have savoured many of those 'once in a lifetime' trips - from snorkelling on the Great Barrier Reef and walking on safari with big game in South Africa, through to riding the legendary Trans-Siberian Express across Asia and circling the globe in one trip, but I still enjoy every new experience with the same passion and sense of romance I used to watch those trains with as a boy.

Format: Paperback
First impressions of this guidebook were very positive. It is, as the name suggest, compact in size and easy to carry around at slightly smaller than 4x6 inches. The cover has a plasticised finish which keeps the book neat.
Inside the front and rear covers are fold out maps of the main cities (Zagreb, Dubrovnik and Split). With this little book they were made from the same plastic as the covers so they are hardwearing and easy to refer too. The general impression as you flick through the book is of lots of colour with attractive photographs on almost every page.

Places of Interest covers all of Croatia in one section. Titles and sub-headings do not stand out very clearly when flicking through. Places of interest in the text are in bold print. The information was interesting and relevant. I would have preferred this chapter to have been split into easier to navigate sections. Items of particular interest are presented in coloured boxes so are easy to spot.

Sporting Activities, Shopping and activities for children. The information was interesting but presented in a disjointed fashion. I prefer all the information about an area and things to do all in the same place. With this guide you had to check this section to see if an activity you were interested in was available in your chosen location.

Food-information including meal-times and local specialities. There is also a section on local drinks and other wines. There is a vocabulary page at the back of this section with phrases that you may need in restaurants and lists of foodstuffs. This is useful for interpreting menus but there is no pronunciation guide so you may still end up with a surprise to eat if your Croatian is not up to speed!

I bought this because it was small and I thought I could easily take it with me on holiday. Unfortunately, it did not cover the part of Croatia I was visiting.

Find Berlitz guides useful and worthwhile. Good size for bag and then great to be able to update knowledge on site.

I have emailed the publishers. A basically useful guide but flawed due to the absence of some important information and the inclusion of some that was incorrect.
