Hey there, I’m Danielle. I was born and raised in the East of England and started travelling internationally with my family at the age of six. By the time I left high school, I had visited dozens of destinations within seven countries across Europe, North America and the Caribbean.

At the age of 17, I secured a Travel & Tourism apprenticeship for the UK’s number one tour operator, and this is where my love for travel flourished. Fast forward 14 years, and I have visited 54 countries across six continents, worked two summer seasons in Spain and spent two and a half years living in North Carolina (United States of America) and two and a half years living in Melbourne (Australia).

Since returning to the UK in 2017, I have continued my work within the Travel & Tourism industry, in the marketing departments of a family-owned cruise line, a small group adventure travel company with the purpose of changing lives through travel and most recently with the UK’s number one independent cruise specialist.

I love writing, I love to travel, and you could say I’m addicted to social media. Authentic travel experiences inspire me. I want to build meaningful relationships with local communities when I travel and, I want to benefit the people and places that I am visiting directly. However, since the coronavirus epidemic closed borders and impacted the way we live in early 2020, my life and experiences have looked slightly different.

I haven’t travelled outside of the UK for more than one year (the most prolonged period in which I haven’t travelled since I was six); I lost my dream job, picked up part-time work in my local supermarket to survive before finding my current full-time marketing role, and am now expecting twin girls with my partner. So, maybe saying life looks a little different is an understatement. With this in mind, the content of my blog is also a little different. Its become less travel-focused and more lifestyle; however, I’d love for you to stick around for the ride!
