I’m Danielle, but please call me Dani. I am Half Brazilian, half Italian. Born and raised in Sao Paulo. I speak 4 languages because I am passionate about communicating with new people everywhere I go. Cliche, but one day I quit my job, left my hometown and went on a round the world trip. Only came back 65 countries later.

Travel is inherent in me, creating and keeping connections with people, cultures, and experiences is what I cherish the most while traveling. I believe this is the best way to experience life as it is. I now have countless stories to share.

Always down for a chat over coffee, practicing yoga and all holistic related stuff. I’ve been vegan for over 12 years and enjoys reading, photography and digital marketing. 

I feel lucky to have joined Embrace the Journey Travel so I can teach what I know and learn what I don’t.

My Biggest Travel Tip

Pack light and carry on! There is so much freedom in traveling without luggage! Freedom to move around faster, to not spend more money on top of the flight ticket, to not worry if the luggage will ever make it to the destination, to pack quickly and to not have to arrive as early to the airport. I only see benefits and my back is happy with this decision lol.

On that same note, packing cubes are a must when traveling, these are the guys that will actually allow you to pack light.
