Hey there! My name is Dani and I am an avid traveler. In addition to being the Lead Community Manager for Perlu, I also run my own travel blog.

After living abroad in Australia for 16 months, I developed a desire to see the world and write about it! My blog is focused on giving people tips and tricks to save money and get the most out of their traveling experiences.

I have a strong belief in being authentic and honest. All photos used are my own, with occasional pieces from guest contributors and Instagram posts. I only write about places that I have actually visited and experiences I've had on my own - and will be clear if something was simply a recommendation!

I’ve discovered a new favorite! On a whim while in Utica last week, I googled “cafes nearby” and came across @citycafecny in Whitesboro. To my surprise, the restaurant had everything I look for: friendly staff, cute decor, and most importantly, incredible food! As I browsed the menu, a staff member asked if I had been in before. After finding out I hadn’t, she proceeded to explain that everything on the menu is completely gluten-free, dairy-free, and peanut-free. The owner, Alyssa, wanted to create a place where people with all types of allergies are welcome and can safely eat. What a great concept! They don’t even allow the employees to bring in any snacks containing gluten. As for the food? So so good! I ordered the taco loaded fries. The fries were perfectly crispy and the toppings were as fresh as can be. The menu features apps, sandwiches, street tacos, loaded fries, greens and grains, plus desserts! And they have a separate dinner menu and brunch menu for the weekends. Yep, they’ve got it all. While I’m lucky enough not to have any food allergies, I know many people who do - so it’s nice to have a place I know we can safely go out to eat! Check it out for yourself 😋 . . . #upstate #upstateeats #upstatefood #eatlocal #supportlocal #eatlocalny #eeeeeats #cameraeatsfirst #centralnewyork #foodie #foodiesofinstagram #iloveny #utica #newyorkblogger #localfoodie #newyorkstate #eater #tasty #uticany #whitesboro #glutenfree #glutenfreefood #glutenfreeeats #dairyfree #dairyfreeglutenfree #loadedfries #oneidacounty #ocnewyork #allergenfree #allergenfriendly

What’s the best thing to do on a Friday night in Syracuse during a snow storm? Have dinner at @pastabilities of course! With the roads as bad as they were and a spike in illnesses, a lot of people stayed in for the night. But not us! We knew it was the perfect time to get to Pastabilties and avoid a long wait and a crowd for a much overdue date night. We braved the snow, walked in, and immediately took a spot at the bar. Our waitstaff was above and beyond phenomenal and the food was as delicious as always. On our menu for the night? 🍅 🥖 An app of pasta’s tomato oil and stretch bread 🧀 Pasta’s mac and cheese bake 🍝 Angel hair carbonara 🍸 Pasta’s rumchata Perfection all around. . . . #upstate #upstateeats #syracuseny #pastabilities #pastalover #pastagram #upstatefood #eatlocal #supportlocal #eatlocalny #wheresyracuseeats #syracusefood #eeeeeats #cameraeatsfirst #centralnewyork #syracuse #foodie #foodiesofinstagram #iloveny #cuse #newyorkblogger #localfoodie #newyorkstate #eater #discoverupny #tasty #carbonara #datenight

Is there anything more Syracuse than an Orange sunset over Onondaga Lake? As I was driving down the parkway this evening, I caught a glimpse of this beauty and had to pull over to get some photos. Perhaps it’s a good omen for @cuse_mbb game tonight? Let’s hope so! . . #syracuse #syracuseny #syracusephotographer #syracusephotography #sunset #sunsetphotography #sunsetlovers #sunsetsofinstagram #orangesunset #syracuseorange #goodomen #perfecttiming #onondagalake #visitsyracuse #visitcny #iloveny #upstate #upstateny #thisisupstate #naturalnewyork #bestofcny #syracusedotcom

Let me tell you about one of my favorite places: @lock1distillingcompany in Phoenix, NY! I first visited the distillery because of a Groupon vouched back in early 2019, and quickly fell in love. Not only do they make incredible spirits, the staff is amazing, and the wood-fired pizza is delish! All of their alcohol pays homage to the history of Phoenix and their location along the Oswego Barge Canal. My favorite? Their Locktender’s Gin, with prominent notes of lavender. Then there is Ryze Vodka, which is triple distilled and triple filtered, winning several awards since the distillery opened in 2015. A variety of flavored whiskeys, bourbon, and a line of fruit liqueurs round out the selections. Head over to the blog to read all about the only distillery in Oswego County and their awesome barrel program. . . . #lock1distillingcompany #phoenixny #oswego #oswegocounty #drinklocal #supportlocal #iloveny #farmdistillery #distillery #nydistillery #craftvodka #barrelprogram #ryze #woodfiredpizza #upstatefoodie #foodie #foodiesofinstagram #upstategirl #upstateny #thisisupstate #upstatenewyork #gin #ginstagram #drinkstagram #whiskeylover #whiskeygram #distilling

A few weeks ago I had the pleasure of meeting @naoymmt and @andikovel on a trip to @corningmuseum! I was super excited, and definitely fangirling a little because they were some of my favorite contestants on @blownawayseries on @netflix. Admittedly, I was bummed that @catburnsglass couldn’t make it to the meet and greet, but I got myself one of her ornaments! It’s a beauty ♥️ Corning still has a Blown Away exhibit so you can check out work from the season 2 artists. And if you haven’t yet, check out the Blown Away Christmas special on Netflix! So who is your favorite Blown Away artist? PS you can read all about the Corning Museum of Glass on the blog. And spoiler alert: I’ll have another feature on a new exhibit soon! . . #corning #corningflx #visitflx #corningmuseumofglass #museumofglass #catburns #naoyamamoto #andikovel #blownaway #blownawayseries #netflix #netflixandchill #meetandgreet #fangirl #christmasornaments #blownglass #glassstudio #netflixseries #christmas #ilovenewyork #iloveny #upstateny #thisisupstate
