Gary Lee Kraut is a Paris-based journalist, writer and editor. He is the author of five travel guides to France and Paris, including the critically acclaimed “Paris Revisited: The Guide for the Return Traveler.” He has also published numerous articles and essays concerning travel, culture, cross-culture, and expatriate life. He is the recipient of FrancePress’s 1995 Prix d’Excellence for his guide to France published in the Fielding Guidebook Collection. Since January 2009 he has served as editor and principle journalist for the premier web magazine France Revisited, www.FranceRevisited.com, exploring life in Paris and travels throughout France. In 2011 the Revisited Project was expanded to include Europe Revisited, www.EuropeRevisited.com, which publishes work about personal travels that reveal shared insights, and USA Revisited, in which Americans abroad reflect on and revisit the United States. He continues to contribute to print publications and is available for assignments. A leading expert on travel in France, Gary has lectured extensively in the United States and France, using stories and insights to reveal how our most rewarding travel experiences are ones in which we find a personal connection with our route or destination. He has taught travel writing classes on both sides of the Atlantic. In 2012 he became the first non-French journalist to be elected to the board of France's Association of Heritage Journalists, Association des journalistes du patrimoine.
