Raised in Vancouver, Carolyn Ali lives to travel.

She was the Georgia Straight's travel and food editor for a decade, and her Getaways column won a best bylined travel column award from the North American Travel Journalists Association for 2014.

She has eaten her way through over 50 countries, taking cooking classes and peering into kitchens en route.

She spent three years teaching English in Japan and several more as an editor for the Bangkok Post in Thailand. In between, she travelled for a year from Southeast Asia to India to the Middle East.

When she can’t travel, she spends her time hunting down travel deals.
