About the author (2007)

Fernando Gayesky moved from Argentina to New York City to study film when he was 21 with $800 in his bank account, good fodder for his first travel article on meals for under $5. Since then, he traveled throughout South America and Europe before settling down in Barcelona, Spain. He's also a contributor to MTV Europe.

After studying abroad in Alicante, Elizabeth Gorman stuffed a duffel bag and set off for Madrid to help jumpstart an e-zine for young expats and students—She's lived there ever since. A contributor to Maxim, ELLE Decor, MAP Magazine, she is currently working on her siesta.

Andre Legaspi was born and raised in Queens, New York, and attended McGill University in Montreal, where he wrote CD reviews and covered the music scene. Andre also contributed to MTV Europe.

Bitten by the travel bug during her first solo backpacking trip through Europe, in which she was cornered by a herd of hungry mountain goats in the Italian Alps, Kristin Luna survived, luckily, and has since visited more than 35 countries on three continents and written about her experiences for international publications like Newsweek.
