About the author (2013)

My name is Paula Hardy and I've been collecting my thoughts on the art of travelling well for over 20 years. I've lived in Africa, Europe and America where I've worked as a guidebook writer and travel editor for one of the world's leading travel publishers, Lonely Planet. I've written and produced over 30 guidebooks, alongside other assignments in print, film and radio, and all the while I've pondered the practicalities and philosophy behind creating great travel experiences. I set up Art of the Weekend in response to what I see as the increasing comodification of quality travel experiences. Its not the how, where and what of travel that makes it special. Like any creative endeavour it's the people you meet and the experiences you create. To that end travelling well is something of an art form.Safari njema.
