About the Author

Andrea Schulte-Peevers is a Los Angeles-based writer, editor and translator who owes her love for languages and travel to her mother who lugged her off to foreign lands when she was still a toothless toddler. After completing high school in Germany, Andrea left for London and stints as an au-pair, market researcher and foreign language correspondent. In the mid-'80s she swapped England for Southern California and the hallowed halls of UCLA. She then hit the job market armed with a degree in English literature and charted a course in travel journalism. Assignments have taken her to all continents but Antarctica and her work has been published in several countries. Andrea joined the fleet of Lonely Planet writers in 1995 and has updated and authored guides to Los Angeles, California & Nevada, Germany and Western Europe.
