I’ve always been torn between making something of myself or simply enjoying life. What I’ve realized in my years of travel is that no matter how many mountains I’ve climbed, or experiences I’ve had, without purpose, it's only short-term fulfillment. In the back of my mind, I've always wanted to be doing more. I want to contribute. I want to learn. I want to be part of a community. And running around the globe makes that a bit unattainable.
I love my freedom, and I never want the explorer in me to go away. But at the end of the day, I want to contribute more to the world than what I take. I’m hoping by being back in Canada and settling down a bit, I can allow myself the time and space to figure things out, so that one day I can merge my love of adventure with my drive to contribute.
So I hate this but.. It hit me that I've never actually explained this page, so for today's post and to celebrate the halfway point of this challenge I'll say hey 👋
I'm Danielle, 24, I live in England (big up Yorkshire). I've always loved travelling and photography, but I realised I never really share my photos not even to family or friends. So at the start of 2020, I made a challenge with myself that I'd post a photo every day for a year from past and future travels. I had planned a big road trip this summer but obvs that will have to wait! At the start, I wanted to give up but got to say due to the growth and the number of amazing people I've connected with I'm really loving this journey and seeing where it goes. The challenge has really made me look at my photos differently, instead of rushing I now take the time to plan the shot in my head and edit more.
I never really set out what I wanted to achieve from this platform but in the the past month I've written a few goals, I'll share them soon.
Well, that's it, I hate having my photo taken (hence behind the camera) but i felt like I wanted to share this today and some of my favourite shots, thank you for joining me on this journey! I've loved speaking and connecting with you all.

We are all a part of the same Mother Earth. To feel we are separate has brought us heartache. To know we are one, brings us joy and peace in our heart.
Meanwhile in Germany: It felt very weird to leave Switzerland for the first time after 3.5 months this morning. I'm currently at one of my all time favourite places: Europa-Park!
Have you been to this awesome theme park? I've been coming since I was two years old. It feels great to be back and beeing able to travel to another country again. 🇩🇪
