Stamps on the Passport

Danette’s travel blog doesn’t contain the usual “we went here, we stayed there, we ate this” experience. Instead, she brings the reader along for the ride with detailed descriptions and breathtaking photographs. Danette believes in documenting every aspect of her journeys - the good, the beautiful, the not-so-great, and everything in between.

The best stories are built from the mishaps, the getting lost, and the unusual characters you meet along the way. Danette’s extreme love for travel and a great sense of humor are readily apparent in the way she writes about every destination.
Danette always hits the ground running. Buckle up and join her on this amazing journey called life!
