About the Author

Vanessa Betts is a writer and editor from England. She went to India in 1997, as the first stop on a round-the-world ticket, and then found out that nowhere else could quite compare. She has lived and worked overseas for most of the last 13 years and is co-author of the Footprint India, Footprint Northeast India, Footprint Egypt and Footprint Israel Handbooks. Alex Baker has been pin-balling around the planet for the last 17 years, at least three of which were spent in India and one of those riding an Enfield from Tamil Nadu to Ladakh. Working variously as a teacher in Kathmandu, barman in LA, magazine editor in Hong Kong, copywriter in Barcelona, TV reporter in Bangkok and mojito beach-vendor in Ibiza, Alex returned to the UK after judiciously falling off a cliff in Kenya free-climbing and incapacitating himself for a year. Currently between writing novels, he required minimal persuasion to contribute to Footprint Indian Himalaya and has since unpacked his bag temporarily in Somerset. Annie Dare is a writer and journalist who divides her time between London and India. She works as a sub-editor on British national newspapers, and commissions have ranged from copy writing for London advertising agencies to social documentary projects for international non-government organizations. She read English Literature at Sussex University's School of African and Asian Studies, and the History of International Relations at the London School of Economics and Political Science.
