Our UK editor Tom Hall: online travel journo of the year

At Lonely Planet HQ we're rather over the moon (and round-the-world) at the news that Lonely Planet's UK editor Tom Hall has been named 'Online Travel Journalist of the Year' at the UK Travel Press Awards 2010 (Lonely Planet magazine also got a gong for best Consumer Travel Publication).

Tom gives new meaning to the term roving reporter - he's forever trotting off around the globe (often by train) and making us terrifically jealous. Here's just a sample of some of the articles he's written for lonelyplanet.com:

Tom also pops up in many other places across the internet. You can ask him a travel question in The Guardian (including during live Q&As) and the Irish Independent. He can be found in all the good social media places, including Twitter and on his blog.
