Colleen Friesen believes in acts of transformation and redemption. She sees her life as proof, after she swapped her caulk boots - as British Columbia’s only female log broker - for a laptop and camera and a new career as a travel writer.
Though most of her writing is about travel, she also likes to write stories that explore insights gained through encountering other worlds; away and at home.
Her travels have, so far, taken her to forty-five countries, confirming her belief that everyone, and every thing, is interconnected.
Her blog combines travel writing, photos, videos and armchair philosophical ponderings to create an exciting collage of ideas and inspiration.

Every story is funny and fascinating. Colleen is a gifted writer for sure. I felt like I was 'there' in each of the travel tales identifying particularly with the author's self-deprecating humour. Also liked that the stories were short and easy reading while passing time waiting in life's endless lineups.

Traveling Light is a smart, entertaining and engaging romp around the world. I laughed out loud at the vignettes and am inspired to try to "travel light" more often and hopefully enjoy life on the road with as much verve and enthusiasm as the author.
