Engagingly written — all the guides from this stable are first class
Bryn Thomas was born in Zimbabwe, where he grew up on a farm. His wanderlust began early with camping holidays by the Indian Ocean in Mozambique, and journeys to game parks in other parts of Africa.
Since graduating from Durham University with a degree in Anthropology, travel on four continents has included a Saharan journey in a home built kit-car, a solo 2500km Andean cycling trip, and 40,000km of rail travel in Asia.
In 1989 his first guide, the Trans-Siberian Handbook, was shortlisted for the Thomas Cook Guidebook Of The Year awards. It is now in its ninth edition.
He has travelled widely on the Indian subcontinent, and is co-author of Lonely Planet's India and Britain guides.
He first trekked in Nepal in 1983, and has since visited the Annapurna region seven times. He wrote Trekking in the Annapurna Region.
