He has worked for Lonely Planet for more than a decade, covering destinations from Cornwall to the Cook Islands, and has worked on more than thirty guidebooks. He is also a regular contributor to many newspapers and magazines, including Lonely Planet Traveller.

Oliver graduated with a degree in English Literature from University College London in 1999. His first trip abroad was to the south of France at the tender age of two, and since then his travels have carried him several times round the globe. Along the way he has learned a few useful skills, including how to catch Fijian sand crabs with your bare hands, the best way to avoid falling into a crevasse on the face of a glacier, and an excellent Samoan recipe for home-made mosquito repellent. He has also been drained by leeches, devoured by mosquitoes and deeply discouraged by the general calibre of aeroplane food, but his passion for world travel hasn't waned.
