Caitlin and Huw Hennessy are seasoned travel writers specialising in Latin America, but with worldwide experience, from Iceland to Auckland, Jamestown to Queenstown. They met as tour leaders for Journey Latin America (UK adventure tour operators).
Between running tours to this then ‘undiscovered’ new destination, they helped update Footprint’s South American Handbook. The travel-writing bug soon took over from the tour leading and they have accumulated more years than they care to count editing, writing and updating numerous Footprint Handbooks, as well as editing for a wide range of publishers, including Dorling Kindersley, Reed Books, Insight Guides, AA, Rough Guides and Michelin.
The couple have updated Bradt’s guidebook to Saint Helena, Ascension and Tristan da Cunha, and have written for magazines and newspapers, including Wanderlust, Songlines, The Independent and the Times Educational Supplement. Inspired by ‘staycationing’, Huw has also written Bradt’s cycling guides to Cornwall & the Isles of Scilly, and to East Anglia.
