Meet the Author

Rodney Bolt has lived all over the world, but since he arrived in Amsterdam in 1991, nothing can persuade him to leave his beloved adopted city. He has written the Cadogan guides to Bavaria and Madeira, as well as other books and articles on the Netherlands. In 1994 he won the German National Tourist Office's Travel Writer of the Year award.
