Born and raised in the United States, Carolyn B. Heller had visited Canada many times over the years before she relocated from Boston to Vancouver with her husband and twin daughters in 2003. She’s since sailed within sight of Vancouver’s downtown office towers and snowshoed in the mountains above the city; explored the temperate Gulf Islands and the towering Rockies; tasted wine in British Columbia’s Okanagan Valley; eaten her way across multicultural Toronto; grooved to the tunes of Montréal’s Jazz Festival; and learned to love, or at least appreciate, poutine.
Carolyn is an avid traveler and passionate food lover who has eaten on the streets, in fine restaurants, and everywhere in betweenin nearly 40 countries. As a full-time travel and food writer, Carolyn has contributed to more than 40 travel and restaurant guides to destinations from Asia to New England to the Pacific Northwest. Her writing has appeared in publications including the Los Angeles Times, Boston Globe, Miami Herald, FamilyFun, FACES, Pulse, and in the book Travelers’ Tales Paris.
Carolyn is a graduate of Brown University. In addition to travel and food, her interests include cooking, running, skiing, theater, studying languages, and hanging out on the beach with her family.
