Dean Starnes

With incurably itchy feet Dean Starnes has been travelling for fifteen years and, after 75 countries, five continents and three backpacks, he's still going strong. A survivor of three bus crashes, one shipwreck and malaria, he's surprisingly resilient. Dean has co-authored Lonely Planet guide books and contributed to the travel anthology Flightless. When he's not travelling, Dean lives in Auckland with his wife, who wonders where they'll hang all the souvenirs.
