All about Dan
I am a travel addict from Wisconsin who now calls Minneapolis home. I’ve been traveling my whole life and have been to over 45 countries on six continents. I love traveling to experience how other cultures live, try new things, find adventures, explore new cities, and meet interesting people. I always prefer to tell someone else’s story vs trying to make myself sound interesting. This world is full of people with amazing stories, and I love finding those people! I quit my full-time job in January of 2013 to travel exclusively for 18 months and have recently made my new base for travel Minneapolis again.
Besides traveling, I am also very tech savvy, go to concerts, play rec sports, and spend as much time with my awesome friends and family as I can. I love trying new things, which is a big part of deciding to travel as much as possible. In 2013, I founded a digital agency, Black Beach Digital, which helps me fund my travels. You can learn more about how I fund my travel here: How To Make Money While Traveling the World.
About This Travel Blog
I started this site to document my current trips as well as the past travels of both me and my ex, Alissa. I try to focus on information that I found hard to find as I was planning that can help others find their way to an amazing trip. I’d love for my articles to help any budget travelers, whether you are traveling for a week, a year, or longer. Check out the FAQ page for any questions you may have, or contact me here.
