Trish Friesen

   Wild about wilderness since she could carry her own backpack on overnight hiking trips with her Dad, as Trish Friesen grew up, she realized The Great Outdoors is even better with a proper toilet, a feather-filled duvet and amenities like a hot chocolate wake-up. Enter glamping, the main reason she packs her bags to explore the world at the trailhead of design, luxury and adventure.

   Trish unpacks her duffel in Vancouver, Canada, where she’s the editor-in-chief of, a travel lifestyle website for aspiring jetsetters. Also find her moonlighting at Expedia, Fodor's, and as a travel expert on TV as she dreams about sipping bubbly in a chic treehouse or canvas tent deep in the woods.
