When to Go
In 1998, she returned to Croatia to write the first edition of Lonely Planet's popular Croatia guidebook which was the first guidebook in English to Croatia.
Over the course of the next four editions in 10 years, Jeanne watched Croatia emerge from the Balkan wars to become a massively popular tourist destination.
Recently, Jeanne gave an interview to the newsletter of the Croatian Embassy in Washington DC recounting her experiences covering Croatia. Here's an excerpt :
Jeanne wrote all Croatia editions for Lonely Planet up to Croatia 4 as well as the Croatia chapters for Mediterranean Europe, Eastern Europe, and Europe on a Shoestring. Jeanne also wrote the Croatia and Slovenia chapters for the first edition of Western Balkans. Her most recent book is Insight Guides Step-by-Step Croatia which has 15 personally-crafted itineraries with maps and specific walking, driving or public transport directions. See Jeanne's author page at Amazon.
Jeanne currently devotes herself full-time to Croatia Traveller, returning to the country each year to update.
