I am Colleen, and I'm so glad you are here. I am a travel writer who just so happens to be a certified health coach too...
When I travel, I want to experience the best this world has to offer - while still maintaining my daily self-care routine, eating delicious healthy foods, and keeping my body active and strong.
Is that too much to ask? LOL
This blog came from my experiences. After spending 27 years as a career firefighter, I was ready to step into a more authentic version of me. As a holistic health junkie (self-proclaimed, by the way) who loves to explore, I wanted to share my experiences of all sorts of travels - travel with dogs, travel with my handsome hubby, travel with my best girlfriends - all with an overarching desire to show the world how much fun it can be to stay healthy!
More than anything though, I wanted to be able to tell you MY stories, in an authentic way. So, in 2019 I attended my first Ultimate Travel Writer's Workshop, and I haven't looked back. I am a member of ITWPA (The International Travel Writers and Photographers Alliance) and a member of the esteemed TravMedia. Most recently, I've been accepted into the prestigious IFWTWA (Internatiional Food, Wine, and Travel Writer's Association). I've been published in multiple online travel and health publications, with a few more in the works! But enough about me...
As a visitor here, you are part of a fantastic community. I am always searching for the hidden gems, the off-the-beaten-path treks, and the spa or wellness center where I can lose myself in pure unadulterated luxury. If you know of one of those places, I'd be so grateful if you'd share.
Thank you so much for being part of this community. There are plenty of ways that you can become more involved. You can follow me on Facebook at Holistic Health Travelers , or on Instagram @holistichealthtraveler.
Thank you and much love,
You are welcome to keep coming back here to see new content. However, a better option is to subscribe to my newsletter! You will get updates on new posts and special content that is only available to my subscribers.
I was asked by the pioneer of Great Escape Publishing's Travel Writer's Cafe to share my journey into travel writing. It probably didn't happen how you'd think, and it might possibly have something to do with Oprah.
