Who am I? Well that’s a pretty loaded question, don’t you think? I’m not really sure who I am, but does anyone, truly?
Ok, I suppose I’m a semi-crazy, very weird and random chick who makes strange decisions, and loves to travel around the world. My name is Danielle Ditzian, most people call me Danie, and you can call me whatever you like.
Is that better? Or do you want to know more of the Danie origin story?
In January of 2013, Danie moved out of her home (don’t you love when people talk about themselves in third person?) where Danie lived with her best friend to embark on a solo traveling adventure. Where? Danie had no idea. Armed with a little money and less of a clue, Danie set off.
- That first trip was a trip to Australia and you can read about it here.
- Prior to this, of course, Danie acquired the great and mighty stick, which has reached over 30 countries. Check out the stick’s epic story here.
Danie has done many cool and crazy things over the years. And she… oh man, writing about myself in the third person just is NOT natural at all! Ha. I went to university for a year and a half and that is where I learned I did not want to be in university. It was travel she craved, and so began the four years and counting of travel.
So I suppose this is partially a travel blog. But it’s not really a travel blog at all. I like to be honest and frank, and share my stories or random thoughts. So whether I’m having a gun pointed at my head in the Amazon, flying to the dead cold winter of Canada to have my heart broken, or going through extreme depression, I’ll be telling you all about it.
Welcome to my brain. Good luck in there.
