Herbert Ypma, author of theHip Hotels travel series, was a nomad before he knew what the word meant. Growing up in Europe, North America, and Australia and traveling extensively from the age of three, Ypma gained a unique foundation of insight and experience with regard to global travel, which he leveraged via his photography and writing into an award-winning architecture and design magazine.
This was followed by an internationally published book series on design and architecture, and then the bestselling Hip Hotels series. Ypma continues to journey the world with his camera, his fountain pen, and his trusty Smythson notebooks, convinced that travel can still be memorable if one knows where to look—and where to stay.
