About the author (2010)

After graduating from college in Chicago, Sara Benson (nickname "Sam") jumped on a plane to the West Coast with just one suitcase and $100 in her pocket. She landed in crazy San Francisco, and today makes her home in a little beach town on the central California coast. She also spent three years living in Japan, after which she followed her wanderlust around Asia for almost a year before returning to the USA, where she has worked as a teacher, a journalist and a national park ranger. She is an all-seasons outdoor enthusiast.The author of more than 30 travel and non-fiction books, Sara's writing has featured in national and international newspapers and magazines, including the Los Angeles Times, Chicago Tribune, London's Independent and National Geographic Adventure. Sara has written for Lonely Planet's Peru, Japan, Las Vegas, California, Canada and Hawaii guides, and contributed to Code Green, Middle of Nowhere and Don't Let the World Pass You By! 52 Reasons to Have a Passport.Her top-three favorite countries (so far, that is) are Nepal, Morocco and Cambodia, but Iceland, Namibia and India are next on her must-see life list. Back in her own country, her favorite places to hang out are the Big Island of Hawaii, New Orleans and Las Vegas. And her most memorable travel experience? Falling off a camel at the edge of the Sahara Desert.To hear more about Sara's travel adventures, visit her website at www.indietraveler.net
