Alison Karlene Hodgins

Alison Karlene Hodgins lives in Vancouver, British Columbia. When she’s not hiking snow-capped mountains or planning future trips, you can find her ensconced in a quirky café reading a travelogue or listening to live music. Born and raised in a rural town in northern Alberta, she understands both the appeal of the city and the allure of the country. She is passionate about ethical tourism, outdoor adventure, and exploring your own backyard, though she's still enamored with international travel—and has already explored over 35 different countries. Alison holds a Writing and Publishing diploma, a Bachelor of Journalism, and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction. She works as the online editor for Explore Magazine and the managing editor for Canadian Traveller. She has been published by The Globe and Mail, The Huffington Post, Cottage Life, HI Hostels, and British Columbia Magazine. Alison is currently writing a memoir about breaking her back, traveling the world, and losing her dad, tentatively titled Backbone.
