About Me:
Carrie Dow is a freelance writer whose work has appeared in, Islands, Artisan Spirit, Go World Travel, Go Nomad, International Living, and Interval World. When not traveling, she is the Local Editor of, part of The Drink Nation, where she writes about Denver's best happy hours (not a bad gig, eh?). She uses her expertise on Colorado's beer, wine, and spirits industry to travel the world looking for unique craft breweries, distillers, vineyards, and cocktail bars, places where she can learn about a destination through food and drink. Believing Mahatma Gandhi,s statement that 'The greatness of a nation and its moral progress can be judged by the way its animals are treated,' she founded What's Pawsitive, a website that profiles animal-based travel, animal rescue organizations, and animal welfare advocates around the world. She has a degree in Language Arts from the University of Nebraska and when writing she is supervised by her editorial staff, a vocal Siamese cat and a contemplative Siberian husky.
