Anita Isalska is a travel journalist, editor and copywriter whose work for Lonely Planet has taken her from Greek beach towns to Malaysian jungles, and plenty of places in between. After several merry years as an in-house editor and writer – with a few of them in Lonely Planet’s London office – Anita now works freelance between the UK, Australia and any Balkan guesthouse with a good wi-fi connection. Anita writes about travel, food and culture for a host of websites and magazines. Read her stuff on www.anitaisalska.com.
Anita writes for several Lonely Planet guidebooks including Greece; Malaysia, Singapore & Brunei; Spain; France; and Romania & Bulgaria (most titles hitting the shelves in 2016-17). With a M.St degree in French literature and Lille as her former home, France is one of her areas of expertise. But Polish ancestry and a fascination with the Balkans constantly beckon her to write about Eastern Europe.

Where to start? Avignon, Cradle Mountain in Tasmania, Iceland, Greece's borderlands, Krakow, Plovdiv, the Austrian Alps, Delhi, my former home Lille and my current home, London.
