Biographie de l'auteur :

Celeste Brash first visited French Polynesia in 1991 and moved there in 1995. Her first five years were on a remote atoll and the next 10 on Tahiti. Throughout this time she's travelled as far as New Zeeland to the west. Easter Island and Pitcairn Island to the east and many places in between. Her award-winning travel stories have appeared in Travelers' Tales books and her travel articles have appeared in publications including the LA Times and Islands magazine. She's written over 30 Lonely Planet guides but considers the South Pacific her speciality. She recently moved to Portland, Oregon, and often complains of the cold. Brett Atkinson : from his home in Auckland, Brett's travelled to many of the island nations in his South Pacific backyard. For this extended research trip to the Cook Islands, he explored the underground caves of 'Atiu, scootered and snorkelled around Aitutaki, and uncovered local foodie treats at Rarotonga's weekly market. Venturing to far-flung and friendly Ma'uke and Mitiaro were other absolute highlights. Jean-Bernard Carillet : Paris-based journalist and photographer Jean-Bernard is a die-hard Polynesia lover and diving instructor. He has explored 28 Islands in the five archipelagos. On this trip he searched for the most idyllic motu, the best manta ray encounters, the most thrilling lagoon tours, the tastiest poisson cru, the most romantic spots and the best-value accommodation. Jean-Bernard has contributed to many Lonely Planet titles and writes for travel and dive magazines. Jayne D'Arcy started her travels with overland Asie trips, but has discovered that overland in the South Pacific can offer up similar diversity and excitement (with more French imports). Aside from the French influence, Jayne digs the coral reefs, astounding lagoons and serious Survivor opportunities that the area has in abundance. When she's not researching for Lonely Planet (this is her 17th guide), Jayne writes for the Age in Victoria, Australia.
