Over the past few months, I’ve been branching out with my freelance writing and photography projects. My latest assignment is with a brand-new online travel magazine called Hip Compass Escapes. The summer issue was released just over a week ago and can be previewed here.  My article and photography can be found on pages 42 and 43.

The magazine is the brainchild of Michelle Strashoon, author of the successful travel tidbits blog Hip Compass. Michelle also writes a popular weekly column called The Hip Compass Travel Guide, which is published every other Friday by The Daily Sound in Santa Barbara. As editor-in-chief, Michelle has pulled together a diverse and talented team of popular travel writers from the blogosphere. Subscribe and have the next issue delivered right to your inbox.

READ:  Photo Moment: My Several Worlds and the Beach

Post Author: Carrie Kellenberger

I'm a chronically ill Canadian who has been living in Asia since 2003. I moved from China to Taiwan in 2006. I'm an experienced businesswoman and have worked in many leadership positions in Asia. In addition to my own work, I've been writing professionally about Asia, travel and health advocacy since 2007, providing regular content to publishing companies and travel publications in Asia and North America. I started writing about my health journey in 2009 after being diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis. In 2014, I was diagnosed with Fibromyalgia and ME/CFS, which came with other massive health issues. These diagnoses were the start of my journey as a health advocate and patient leader. Since then, My Several Worlds has been recognized worldwide as a top site for AS, fibromyalgia, and chronic illness by WEGO Health and Healthline.

    Fun read and good to learn about the Grand Hotel but it’s really the restaurant that’s enticing me.

      Ha. Anil, you and I are two peas in a pod. I’m a foodie for sure. One of the things I love about travel is eating out and trying new food. Ambiance and good grub make me feel like I’ve died and gone to heaven.
