About the Author:

Brett Harriman grew up in the seaside town of Dana Point, California, and was fortunate enough to have parents who dragged their kids with them everywhere they went, including on overseas vacations. Thus, the travel bug kicked in early.

Brett's writings are inspired by his love of travel, to which he has driven across America, trekked around Australia, and explored Europe extensively. Brett lived in Australia for a decade and in Europe for five years, where he was an official tour guide for the U.S. Armed Forces in Germany. In that role, Brett led more than 10,000 servicemen and women and their families through many historically rich cities, towns, villages and Alpine hamlets.

Brett continues to spend some three months every year in Europe leading tours and updating his guidebooks (trekking across cities and towns knocking on doors and asking a zillion questions, inspecting hotel rooms and looking under mattresses, double checking prices and opening times and transportation schedules, sampling schnitzel and beer and strudel...).

In 2011, for all his hard work, Brett was selected by the president of Oktoberfest to represent the USA during the world-famous festival in Munich, Germany.

When he is not in Europe sleuthing out the latest travel information or on tour, Brett spends his time in Pahrump (55 miles west of Las Vegas), Nevada, where his parents have retired and he finds serene sanctuary to compile and compose his travel book series, tour packages, and publishing business (
