Karen Loftus is a travel and luxury lifestyle writer based in Los Angeles. She has an affinity for cocktail and culinary tourism perfectly paired with a wild side of adventure. Once an international comedian that toured the Global Road, Karen now puts on the page what she once delivered on stage. She still travels the world and tells stories and is most at home when she is away from it. There's no place like the road.
