Kerry Christiani is an award-winning British travel writer, author, photographer and translator. Itchy footed from the moment she could stand, her insatiable wanderlust has taken her to all seven continents – from the frozen wilderness of Antarctica to the Australian Outback – and shows no sign of waning. Over the years she has hitchhiked with Thai royalty, sledged with Tibetan monks, picked grapes in Bordeaux, competed in a Finnish hay-making contest and served beer at Oktoberfest – all in the name of a story.
Kerry’s writing has appeared in Adventure Travel, Lonely Planet Traveller, Sunday Times Travel Magazine, BBC Travel, Independent, Guardian, Olive, Boundless by CSMA and countless inflight magazines. She is the author/co-author of more than a dozen Lonely Planet guidebooks – most focusing on Central and Southern Europe. She also blogs regularly for lonelyplanet.com and writes in-depth hotel and restaurant reviews for omotg.com.
Often travelling with her camera in hand, Kerry’s photography endeavours to capture subtle nuances in light, textural detail and unusual angles, with the aim of distilling the personality of a place.
Although British and now based in the UK, Kerry lived in Germany for six years and has also spent stints living Spain, France, Greece and Switzerland. A translator qualified to MA level, she can speak fluent German, Spanish and French, as well as some Portuguese and Italian. She translates and writes copy for high-profile clients including Switzerland Tourism and luxury hotel brand Giardino.
Kerry is available for freelance writing, photography, translation and copywriting assignments. She is never happier than when planning her next adventure…
