Yo world, I’m Danick, a 22 year old South Caribbean soul with a passion for travel and writing. I have just returned from seven months of traveling – mainly through South America but with some stops in Europe as well. Now, after all this globetrotting and soul searching, I  am settling down again. This time in a new country, Scotland, where I will be completing a Masters in Ecological Economics.

My wanderlust and love for Latin America both started on a family trip to Ecuador. Ten years ago, my mother swore off cruise ships forever to take my younger sister and I backpacking through the small South American country. Ecuador’s tiny Amazonian towns, glacier covered Andes, and fascinating history had me hooked immediately.

Ever since, I have explored many other South and Central American countries, and hung out on both US coasts. While living and studying in The Netherlands, I discovered various European cities. I followed a field course (and went on safari) in East Africa, and two years ago, I hiked through Nepal’s Himalayas. I am so lucky to have been able to visit, live or intern in 44 countries, and I am planning on visiting a lot more this year.

Join me as I get lost in one of my favourite places: Earth. Do you have any tips for places to visit, or want to know more about the places I have already visited? Leave a comment on any of my posts or contact me.
