Henry's dalliance with travel writing began in 2008, when his hopelessly wordy account of a weekend jaunt up a mountain in Morocco landed on the front page of an in-flight magazine.
Since then, his writing has appeared in over 70 publications, including the New York Times, Guardian and TIME Magazine. His features have been syndicated worldwide, and translated into over a dozen languages.
He specializes in off-beat travel in Africa, India and the Middle East, with occasional forays into more comfortable climes to mollify his beleaguered girlfriend Lucy (overdue compensation for all the the years of bush-taxis and nights spent sleeping on benches).
Favourite bolt-holes on this ever-shrinking planet include the untrammelled fastness of India's Garhwal Himalayas, the Croatian island of Vis, and his mum's luxuriant South London garden.
Between assignments, Henry lives in Gipsy Hill with Lucy and their children Lily and Ben.
