Based in the mountains of Mid Wales, Kerry Walker is an award-winning British travel writer, author, photographer and translator, and a lover of mountains, cold places and true wilderness.
Kerry’s travels have taken her to all seven continents – from the frozen wilderness of Antarctica and the Arctic to the Australian Outback. Over the years she has hitchhiked with Thai royalty, sledged with Tibetan monks, served beer at Oktoberfest and swum with whale sharks – all in the name of a story.
Kerry’s writing has appeared in publications including the Telegraph, Lonely Planet, National Geographic Traveller, Adventure Travel, the Guardian and the Independent. A specialist in Central and Southern Europe, Kerry is the author/co-author of more than 20 Lonely Planet guidebooks and coffee table titles. She regularly contributes online features to lonelyplanet.com and adventure.com, and is one of the Telegraph’s on-the-ground experts for Wales and Austria.
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 capturing the personality and changing moods of a place.
Besides six years living in Germany’s Black Forest, Kerry 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…
