BGTW Awards – Islands of Croatia wins Best Guidebook

I was chuffed to win the British Guild of Travel Writers award for Best Guidebook – for my Cicerone guide, Islands of Croatia – at the British Guild of Travel Writers Members Awards Dinner on Sunday evening at the Savoy in London. It was the first time, apparently, that a hiking guidebook has won the award.

You can see some of the images from Islands of Croatia, which includes walks on the islands of Rab, Krk, Vis, Hvar, Lastovo, Korčula, Lošinj and Mljet, among others, here.
Thanks to the Oman Tourism Office who generously sponsored the award, the Louisiana Office of Tourism who sponsored this year’s BGTW Awards Dinner at the Savoy, and to my hosts the lovely people from the Belgian Tourist Office – Brussels & Wallonia. There’s a press release here.

Congratulations! I could have done with this a fortnight ago! Did you do Kolocep by any chance?

I totally understand! It’s a great place to visit and/or trek, though! 😀
