Hello! I’m Dani, a self-described obsessive traveler, avid reader, language learner, game player, English teacher, linguistics researcher, beer drinker, puzzle lover, dog owner, list maker, over-thinker, equality seeker. I’m currently in the process of living out my expat/traveler dreams, and I want to share what I learn along the way.

A few details about me: I’m from Chicago, IL, but lived over half my life just north of Atlanta, GA. I’m married to my best friend, Tucker Rose, and we’ve been together for quite awhile. He features often in my writings, along with our travels. I’m lucky enough to have seen all 50 US states before I graduated high school, and now I’m crossing countries off my list. But more than just traveling abroad, I like living abroad. In 2015, Tucker and I moved to Łódź, Poland and then, in 2017, to Hefei, China. Now we’re stranded in Orlando, FL amid the pandemic chaos, but we have residency visas pending for both Quebec, Canada and Mexico. Where will we end up next? I honestly have no idea, but that’s what makes it so much fun!
