Alison Karlene Hodgins

Hey there! I'm the Managing Editor for Canadian Traveller and the Online Editor/Community Manager for Explore Magazine. As a freelance writer, I've been published by The Globe and Mail, HI Hostels, Cottage Life, World Nomads and The Huffington Post. I hold a Writing and Publishing Diploma, a Bachelor of Journalism and a Master of Fine Arts in Creative Nonfiction. You can find me on the top of a mountain, reading travel literature on the beach or sipping a coffee in a quirky cafe, especially if there's a band with a banjo playing. I'm passionate about ethical tourism, outdoor adventure and learning to appreciate your own backyard. But I'm still a sucker for international travel—I've already explored over 35 different countries and plan to see as much of the world as possible. Follow my adventures at
