Patty Hodapp

I’m a journalist reporting from the intersection of fitness and adventure. 

But more importantly, I’m a trail runner, snowboarder, and angler. I love the mountains, catching trout, and of course, traveling every chance I get. I like to follow amazing people around the world and tell their stories.

I have seven years of experience writing, editing, optimizing and promoting digital content for national magazines—namely,,, and I cover all aspects of adventure travel, the outdoors and fitness. You can view my LinkedIn profile here and see my recent work here.

I’ve written and reported for VICE, CBS Travel correspondent Peter Greenberg, International Musician, Making Music magazine, The Huffington Post,, The Mayo News, The Daily Orange, and several other print and digital publications.

I live in Colorado, and sometimes abroad—my expat homes are scattered around the world: Ireland, England, Italy, Puerto Rico, and Spain.

All told, this blog is a mix of my professional and personal travel interests. For updates, follow me on Instagram  @patty_hodapp. Reach me via pattyhodapp at
