Jane Foster is freelance travel writer, specialising in Croatia and Greece. Brought up in Wensleydale in North Yorkshire, she developed an insatiable appetite for wild open landscapes, unspoilt nature, and adventure sports. She studied for a Degree in Architecture at Oxford Polytechnic, and has since lived in Rome, Athens, and Split, where she is now based, on the Dalmatian Coast. She is author of the Footprint Croatia handbook and the DK Eyewitness Athens Top 10, and has contributed to various newspapers and magazines, including National Geographic Traveler (US), the Telegraph (UK) and SilverKris (Singapore Airlines magazine). She reviews special places to stay in Croatia for, and returns to the Yorkshire Dales several times a year to see her family.
