About Me

Patty Hodapp

I’m a journalist reporting from the intersection of fitness and adventure. I have six years of experience writing, editing, packaging, optimizing and promoting content for national brands and websites—namely YogaJournal.com, MensFitness.com, OutsideOnline.com, Shape.com and TravelChannel.com. I cover all aspects of adventure travel, the outdoors and fitness. You can view my LinkedIn profile here and see my recent work here.

When I’m able, I live abroad—my expat homes are scattered around the world: Ireland, England, Italy, Puerto Rico, and Spain. I’m currently based in Colorado.

In the past, I was a Contributing Online Editor for Men’s Fitness magazine, Contributing Online Editor for Shape magazine and Deputy Editor for the award-winning travel website LostGirlsWorld.com. I graduated with a BA in Newspaper, Magazine & Online Journalism from the S.I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University. I’ve written and reported for CBS Travel correspondent Peter Greenberg, International Musician, Making Music magazine, HuffingtonPost.com, Oyster.com, CityPath.com, The Mayo News, The Daily Orange, and several other print and digital publications.

In my down time, I’m a solo backpacker, stand up paddleboard enthusiast, and speak Spanish every chance I get.

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