About the Author

Born in South Carolina, Shann Fountain Alipour has been traveling all of her life. She studied abroad in both Spain and Germany and has visited 35 countries - many of them before age 21. She speaks Spanish, Croatian, and rapidly declining French.

After graduating from Sweet Briar College, Shann owned a multilingual staffing company, tried her hand at corporate gifts, and taught Spanish (with occasional travel sabbaticals in between) before becoming a writer. She was a frequent contributor to Travel + Leisure and Condé Nast Traveler and her articles have also appeared in Hemispheres, Four Seasons Hotels magazine, and several other publications.

Shann began visiting Eastern Europe in 1992, immediately falling in love with Croatia. She traveled to the region 16 times before moving there in 2004. She lived in Zagreb until 2010 but continues to visit regularly, especially in the summers. She loves discovering the wine regions of Croatia and Slovenia, being at any island on Croatia's coast, eating Istrian truffle cheese, and spending time with local friends, both old and new. She moved to San Francisco in 2010 and lives with her husband and children who are also travel aficionados.

Reviews

"Moon handbooks are always a pleasure to read. The writing is crisp, the research impressive, and the recommendations practical and down to earth."--Chicago Tribune
"The books are more easily readable than other guides. The main attractions are also marked with a special icon and sidebars and boxes highlight special information, making the Moon handbooks one of the most user-friendly guides in terms of visual appeal and organization...the quality is uniformly excellent."--Transitions Abroad
"Far from narrow minded, each Moon travel guide gives itinerary options for a variety of travelers' budgets--from frugal to lavish. They make books catering to those who love the outdoors, those who have limited time, those staying exclusively in cities and those who've fully committed to living abroad. In all, they have hundreds of titles, ranging Bermuda to Budapest, that'll teach you to embrace a new culture."--Gear Patrol, "The Best Travel Guidebooks for Every Journey"
"Moon handbooks have become known as well-written and exceptionally informative guides."--The New York Times
"Moon guides are perfect for the relaxed road tripper or outdoor explorer."--No Small Plan
"Moon handbooks are known for cannily combining logistical information with cultural background of a country or state."--Los Angeles Times
