Product Description

About the Author

Becky is a freelance writer and cultural critic living in Portland, Oregon. For Lonely Planet, she has written about Seattle and the Pacific Northwest, the Great Plains states of the US, parts of England and Wales, and n primarily n Sweden. Becky grew up with a thick book of Swedish fairy tales illustrated by John Bauer, so the deep black forests of Norrland hold particular fascination for her. Hiking through them, she's alert for trolls and tomtes (which, to the untrained eye, look just like big rocks). Though raised in the mountains of Colorado, Becky has been exploring Sweden since childhood, while visiting her grandparents and other relatives in Stockholm and parts north. She's thoroughly hooked on pickled herring and saffron ice cream but has nothing good to say about Swedish beer. About ten years ago, having exhausted the potential of the role of copy editor at an alternative weekly newspaper in Portland, Becky spent the requisite year bumming around Europe on the mega-cheap. This did nothing to quell her urge to run off exploring new places every couple of months; quite the opposite. She has since spent time roaming around in Wales, Scotland, Ireland and England, Beijing, Panama, Mexico, and most of the US. In 2009 Becky rode a 30-year-old Honda SL175 motorcycle from Portland, Ore., to Knoxville, Tenn., with the infamous 555 crew and wrote about the experience for Cycle World magazine. She reviews movies on KBOO 90.7 FM radio in Portland and writes about books, food and miscellany for anyone who lets her. She's the lone female member of the Sang-Froid Riding Club and serves on the Portland Motorcycles & Scooters Citizen Advisory Committee. She has a master's degree in journalism from NYU's Cultural Reporting and Criticism program, and she's currently working on a book about motorcycles and the paradoxical appeal of risk.

4.0 out of 5 stars GOOD BUT NOT AS COMPREHENSIVE AS OTHER LONELY PLANET BOOKS May 31 2012
By Jack E. Levic - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought the current editon of LONELY PLANET CYPRUS when I made my plans to visit Cyprus. A few weeks later, this new edition was released so I also purchased this version. This new version had a few improvements and changes. There were more useful pictures. The pictures in the previous edition were not inspiring. Also, there were changes in the format such as the accommodations section was no long included with each city listing but rather they were all lumped together at the back of the book. I did not like this change since it meant flipping back and forth between the city information and the accommodation listing.
Although, there was plenty of useful information in this book, I felt it was lacking on several levels. The authors seem to feel that the ONLY way to see Cyprus is by car so they skimp on information on Intercity and local buses and other ways to see the country. I had to get the information on my own. Pafos especially was full of day tours offered for the entire country. It would have been good to have some guidance and direction ahead of time on where to look for tours.
I found myself seeking out information on my own more than with other editions of LONELY PLANET. The small maps included were not as detailed as I would have liked. I chose a hotel in Pafos based on the recommendation of LONELY PLANET. I was more than pleased with the hotel but I had trouble finding it based on the map in the book.
The LONELY PLANET guides are my favorite travel tools. I was a bit disappointed in this edition and for once found myself relying more on the EYEWITNESS TRAVEL GUIDE that I also brought with me.

2.0 out of 5 stars DIsappointed Lonely Planet Fan July 8 2014
By Michael P Griffith - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I'm a Lonely Planet fan and didn't think twice about grabbing this guide. Unfortuantely, I was incredibly disappointed by the guide. I've used Lonely Planet guides frequently for navigation purposes, but they were insufficiently detailed for my trip. The restaurant recommendations for Pafos were abysmal. Thinking I was in for a quaint local fish restaurant, my cab dropped me off at a dump that sold over priced, overcooked fish, passing up several interesting looking restaurants on the way. The hiking guides were not organized in a way that was condusive for planning a quick day hike, leading me to just skip it. Restaurant recommendations in Nicosia were outdated, limited, and unimaginative. I'd recommend checking other guides out before using this one.
4.0 out of 5 stars Detailed enough and informative May 29 2014
By giulia - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
As usual, lonely planet guide recommends activities for different types of traveler. The maps could be more readable and a classical table of contents would be handy.
5.0 out of 5 stars I love it. Jan. 14 2014
By Walter K Golson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although it was later getting to me than I expected, I have been very pleased with its content. It gives short and concise information on Cyprus that is easy to digest.
