Hello! My name is Dani, and I am in love with the world map on my wall.
I am a twenty year old student from New Zealand, and in a spontaneous effort to explore life outside of my shrinking Kiwi bubble, I bought a one-way ticket to the other side of the world.
The Ginger Passports began as a platform for me to share my adventures and hopefully inspire fellow readers to take the plunge and buy a plane ticket somewhere that scares them. This was born out of the mentality that nothing parallels the extent to which experience changes your view of the world. I figured that if I could challenge my own perspectives and attitudes through this blog, then hopefully somebody else could as well.
Since then, my goals for the blog have shifted. Whilst I still maintain the above, I now see the Ginger Passports also as a vehicle by which I can discuss political issues pressing society today. For me, traveling hasn’t just meant visiting beautiful places and taking beautiful photos; it has also meant important (and sometimes unpleasant) exposure to inequalities and injustices that are far removed from places like New Zealand.
The Ginger Passports is my way of taking responsibility as a human being with a voice.
Now that the serious stuff is out the way, I’m going to distract you from and hide the fact that I don’t like sharing a heck of a lot of personal information about myself with some pretty, faceless photos of Spain and Egypt.
(Did it work?)
So anyways; kick back, relax and enjoy my sarcastic and cheesy corner of the internet.
