Alison Karlene Hodgins
Travel Writer/Blogger

I am a freelance journalist, travel blogger and journalism student at Thompson Rivers University in Kamloops, B.C. I have written for Canadian Traveller, British Columbia Magazine, Explore Magazine and World Nomads. Follow my adventures on my travel blog at aroundtheworldwithalison.com! At 24 years old, I have already explored over 30 different countries. My favourite way to travel is by backpack – to drop everything in life and buy a one-way ticket, pack up the next few years into a couple of bags and take off into the great unknown. I'm passionate about ethical tourism, outdoor adventure and learning to appreciate one's own backyard. I currently live in Seoul, South Korea.
