The face behind “Harriman Travel Books” and Oktoberfest’s best packages
Brett Harriman grew up in the seaside town of Dana Point, California, and was fortunate enough to have parents who dragged their kids with them everywhere they went, including on overseas vacations. Thus, the travel bug kicked in early.
Brett’s inspiration comes from his love of travel. He has driven across America, trekked around Australia, and explored Europe extensively. Brett lived in Australia for a decade and then in Europe for five years, where he was an official tour guide for the U.S. Armed Forces in Germany. In that role, Brett escorted more than 10,000 servicemen and women and their families through many historically rich cities, towns, villages and Alpine hamlets. In 2011, for all his hard work, Brett was selected by the president of the Oktoberfest to represent the USA in Munich, Germany during the world-famous festival.
When Brett is not in Europe sleuthing out the latest travel information or leading a tour, he spends his time in Pahrump (55 miles west of Las Vegas), Nevada, where his parents have retired and he finds serene sanctuary to compile and compose his travel book series, publishing business, and tour packages.
