AnneLise Sorensen

Writer and editor AnneLise started globe-hopping early: She traveled to Cairo at two weeks old – and she’s been getting lost on purpose ever since. AnneLise grew up in North Africa, Southeast Asia (first pet was a coconut crab), Denmark and Spain (father is Danish, mother, Catalan), before alighting in California to attend UC Berkeley. Since then, AnneLise has written – and wine-tasted – her way around the world, contributing to outlets including The New York Times, New York Magazine, Time Out, NBC, CNN, Rough Guides and Fodor’s Travel Guides. She is the author of Top 10 Barcelona, as well as guides to Scandinavia, Spain, Central America and Canada, and the inspirational tome Make the Most of Your Time on Earth. AnneLise is also a travel writing coach and the host of the lecture series, Travel Transforms, on how travel can be a catalyst for change in your life. Along the way, AnneLise trekked in the footsteps of Vikings across Denmark; solo-backpacked through India, with a questionable detour to Goa’s interpretive-dance beach raves; and sampled rodent in Belize (after living in NYC for a while, eating rat felt like the ultimate revenge). At great personal hardship, she also took on an assignment to track down the best sangria in Spain. Many of AnneLise’s favorite adventures are not reached by plane – but by subway. She regularly travels across her home base of New York City, from sampling tapas in Manhattan to bellydancing in Brooklyn. Follow AnneLise: @AnneLiseTravels
