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 I lived just north of Atlanta, GA for almost 20 years. 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. Amid the pandemic chaos, we were stranded in Orlando, FL, but we have now officially relocated to Guadalajara, México. What a ride! Care to keep track?
