About the Author

Dr. Jill Nash grew up in (arguably) the best place in Britain - The Lake District. Always one for fun and adventure she trained as an outdoor pursuits instructor before globe trotting all over the world on scuba-diving expeditions and studying in various parts of France. The sense of adventure has never left her and after a short stint as an academic, she packed her bags and wondered the world - this time with her new husband. The most incredible adventure? 'Definitely diving the Blue Hole in Belize and getting married in Italy of course!' Carlo Nash also a fellow Northerner (but with a family history in Italy - a much guarded family secret!) grew up in Bolton, Lancashire. His Northern accent and penchant for action thrills attracted his nomadic wife. Carlo is actually a professional footballer, which allows him to travel the world during the 'off season', but unfortunately he cannot partake in all the dangerous activities - he persuades his wife to instead! He is the man behind the lens, painstalkingly making sure every shot and every angle is perfect. A bit like his game really. Perfect travel companion - naturally - and best trip? Probably hiking on the Great Wall of China - 'it s certainly the best pre-season training imaginable'.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well written, informative, good looking... 6 Nov 2008
By DStuart
I wholeheartedly recommend this book.

The images selected are all excellent, some breath-taking and some of the destination description almost takes you straight there!

I read the book to get some tips and found it to be a really good read in its own right, even if you aren't planning a trip! Includes a fantastic selection of locations.

You can tell by the writing a lot of love has gone into this book. It's a great read.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have! 18 Nov 2008
This book is fantastic! It was recommended to me by a friend who had read a previous book from Luxury backpackers and knew that my fiance and I were struggling for honeymoon ideas. We've been on various "luxury" holidays before, but we wanted this particular one to be extra special! Just a quick flick through and the beautiful photos alone had me sold. This book gave us a whole wealth of ideas and I have since been in touch with Dr Nash who has planned a tailored itinerary for us that combines luxury and pampering with cultural immersion - all within our budget. Perfect. I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a holiday with a difference, honeymoon or not.

The selection of trips inside this book is excellent. The destinations are original and varied and definitely not the typical bog-standard holidays which have been organised by run of the mill travel agents.

You can tell straight away that the book is independently researched and that a lot of care has gone into the suggested places to eat, visit and stay and--more importantly--that the authors really enjoyed each and every place they visited.

The images inside this book are simply out of this world. It's a delight to just flick through the pages and literally "look at the pictures".

In summary, the book serves two purposes: it's a beautiful coffee table book about travel; and it's a wonderfully written reference book for couples looking to pick a very special honeymoon destination.

5.0 out of 5 stars great guide book and great photography 10 Oct 2008
At last! A funky, trendy looking book, which is enjoyable to look at AND is factually very useful. This is a combination we haven't found elsewhere.

We don't have time to trawl through loads of different guides offering pages of black and white text, but luxury backpackers is very good at summarising exactly what you need to know in a really fun way.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great selection 4 Dec 2012

Gorgeous selection of destinations. The authors got this book spot on. Sardinia and Corsica dealt with which is unusual for English language book and they are both incredible places. Very impressed with this. So much so, I have ordered two others from the Luxury Backpackers range. Also love the section on Tahiti. Good selection of Europe and more far flung.
