Publisher Comments:

Canada resident and experienced outdoorsman Andrew Hempstead offers an insiders perspective on dining at the best restaurants and cafés in Vancouver and spotting gray whales and orcas near Victoria. Andrew offers unique trip ideas that cover the best of this remarkable region, including the Vancouver and Victoria Highlights Tour and Nature Lover's Tour. Packed with information on dining, transportation, and accommodations, this has lots of options for a range of travel budgets. With guidance on exploring Stanley Park, visiting the Royal British Columbia Museum, and skiing and snowboarding at Whistler, Moon Vancouver and Victoria gives travelers the tools they need to create a more personal and memorable experience.

About the Author

Kayaking around Bowen Island, enjoying a powder day at Whistler Blackcomb, chowing down on pancakes at the Elbow Room, joining the mid-day crowd at Butchart Gardens, and surfing on the west coast—Andrew Hempstead has done all of this and more. Hes out there not because its part of compiling a guidebook, but because he loves Vancouver and Victoria. These diverse experiences, coupled with a deep respect for nature and an interest in local history, have been essential in his creation of Moon Vancouver and Victoria.

Andrew spends as much time as possible out on the road, and rather than having an itinerary laid out for him by local tourism offices, he travels incognito so he can experience the many and varied delights of Vancouver and Victoria the same way his readers do.

Since the early 1990s, Andrew has authored and updated over 60 guidebooks, contributed to dozens of major magazines, supplied content for online clients, such as Expedia and KLM, and been employed as a corporate writer for Parks Canada. His photography has appeared in a wide variety of media ranging from international golf magazines to a Ripleys Believe it or Not! Museum. Andrew is an academy member of S. Pellegrino World's 50 Best Restaurants; he has spoken on guidebook writing to a national audience; and he has contributed to a university-level travel writing textbook.

Andrew and his wife Dianne own Summerthought Publishing, a regional publisher of nonfiction books. He and his family live in Banff, Alberta.
