Hi, and welcome!
My name is Dani, and I’m the blogger behind Travelling Jezebel.
Ever since I can remember, I’ve yearned for a life of travel, and the second I graduated from university, I packed my bags and jetted off to Southeast Asia. That was almost a decade ago, and I’ve not stopped travelling since, making it my mission to discover the world’s hidden gems and the people that inhabit them.
I created Travelling Jezebel to share those off the beaten path treasures, through a lens of gastronomy, culture, and offbeat experiences.
From wine cellars in Moldova to rustic Sicilian beach towns, mountain villages in Albania, and tea plantations in Sri Lanka, I invite you to come along with me and create your own adventure too.
The best way to learn about a place is by observing its culture. From UNESCO World Heritage Sites and ancient monuments to centuries-old storytelling traditions, traditional music, and local handicrafts, you’ll find it all in this section.
Food is not just something that nourishes the body – it’s something that brings people together, that is passed down from generation to generation, and that can take hours of laborious struggle to get just right. Underground wine cellars in Moldova, olive groves in Greece, and cooking classes in Morocco are just some of the things you’ll find in this section.
There’s something so special about Europe. Majestic Baroque architecture, vibrant capital cities, and rustic fishermen’s villages are always served with strong coffee, chic sophistication, and hundreds of years of history. If you’re planning a trip to Europe, you’re in the right place.
The Road Less Travelled
Overtourism is bad for destinations, bad for the planet, and bad for YOU, the visitor! Getting off the beaten path and discovering authentic destinations that haven’t been turned into tourist resorts is by far the most rewarding type of travel, whether you’re seeking out Tuscan hilltop towns, Balkan homestays, or Eastern European capitals.
Travel isn’t all sunshine and rainbows, and as I’m incredibly passionate about human rights, I see it as my responsibility to highlight the issues that can arise as a result of tourism. From human trafficking and sex tourism to the ethics of travelling to North Korea and Saudi Arabia, this section is where you’ll find my opinion pieces.
