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!

Today we had the chance to try some of the new drinks at @abbott.farms - and we have to say, they are delicious! 🍋💜 Lavender Lemon Gin Spritz - made with a homemade lavender syrup and gin from @madisoncountydistillery, this cocktail was easily my favorite. 🫐🥃 Blueberry Mint Whiskey Smash - made with Waldron whiskey from @lock1distillingcompany, this was a close call for my favorite. In my husband’s words, “This is dangerous. This is delicious!” 🍋 🌱 Lavender Lemon Mojito - the menu has blueberry mojitos, but I asked for lavender instead. Since it’s made with a coconut liqueur and not regular rum (due to the farm licensing), the coconut flavor was a little overpowering for me. But Josh was a big fan! Abbott’s also has local craft beer from @buriedacornbrewing, @willowrockbrew, @goodnaturebrewing, and @undergroundbeerlab; wine from @heronhillwinery, and hard cider made in-house. We paired our drinks with some incredible Greek food from @theo_petros. Their tzatziki sauce was perfectly dilly! If you’re looking for a casual place to grab some drinks (and hang out with some goats), head over to Abbott’s. You can get some delicious pastries while you’re here too. . #syracuse #syracuseny #cuse #syracuseeats #syracusedrinks #wheresyracuseeats #wheresyracusedrinks #visitsyracuse #eatlocalnewyork #eatlocal #drinklocal #supportlocal #syracusefood #syracusefoodie #upstate #upstateny #upstatenewyork #cocktailbar #vodka #thisisupstate #cocktail #cocktails #cocktailsofinstagram #drinkstagram #cocktailblogger #foodcritic #cidery #craftbeer

It has been a joy watching the new mural coming to life in downtown Syracuse. It’s no secret that I absolutely love murals, but this one holds a special place in my heart. Not only is the mural dedicated to famous and historic Syracuse basketball players, my husband and I have gotten to meet and spend time with the artist @never1959 while he’s been in Syracuse. It’s been such a joy watching Jonas create a masterpiece with only spray paint - and then introducing him to some Syracuse staples like salt potatoes, chicken riggies, @dinosaur_bbq, @pastabilities, @thesaltcitymarket, @alswine.whiskey, @threelivesbar, and @meierscreekbrewinginnerharbor. We’ve still got a few more places to check out in the few days he has left while he finishes the mural. While there is still some work to do, the official “unveiling” is tomorrow night. And before you ask why certain players (Boeheim, Carmelo, Pearl…) aren’t part of the mural, here are the historic players who were chosen and why: BREANNA STEWART: a Syracuse native (and fellow CNS alum), Breanna has continued to crush records and break barriers. An Olympic-winning @wnba athlete, she has stood up for LGBTQ rights and was part of the #MeToo movement. EARL LLOYD JR: a member of the 1955 Syracuse Nationals championship team, Earl was also the very first Black player in the NBA. DOLPH SCHAYES: also a member of the 1955 team, Adolph Schayes was a hero in the Jewish community, having persevered despite anti-Semitic struggles. MANNY BRELAND: a historic member of the Syracuse community on many levels, Manny was the first Black person to receive a basketball scholarship to @syracuseu, but after college he stopped basketball. Instead he became the first Black science teacher in Syracuse, and later the first Black principal. ➡️ Swipe for more photos of the mural’s progress. . #syracuse #syracuseny #visitsyracuse #upstateny #mural #muralsofinstagram #syracusebasketball #subasketball #syracusenationals #nba #basketball #basketballart #upstate #upstatelife #thisisupstate #streetart #streetarteverywhere #downtown #downtownsyracuse #bball #publicart #letsguide #photorealism #photorealistic #cuse #instamural #newyorkstate

Already missing my bestie Estie and our amazing adventure in Baltimore. Going to visit once or twice a year just isn’t enough! On my latest trip, I found a new favorite spot - @thecornerpantry Led by a British chef and his Baltimore-native wife, the menu has lots of Brit dishes. Everything is fresh, flavorful, and beautiful! Plus, it felt like the appropriate place to eat since England was celebrating the Platinum Jubilee. We loved the ube lattes that were on special, and I had the coronation chicken salad. Ohmygoodness it was incredible. The sandwich had curried chicken, raisins, almonds, cilantro, and farm greens on whole wheat bread with a side of homemade chips. It. Was. Incredible. . . #bmore #bmoreeats #visitbmore #visitbaltimore #tcp #britsinbaltimore #ube #ubelatte #bestfriends #coronation #jubilee #platinumjubilee #chickensalad #foodadventures #baltimore #bmore #visitmd #visitmaryland #getinmybelly #cameraeatsfirst #moreplease #foodie #foodiegram #foodielife #foodiefriends #charmcity #britishfood #foodblogger #foodcritic

We had a BLAST last weekend at the Cocktail Scavenger Hunt hosted by @eatlocalnewyork and @limplizardbbq! The five of us started at @kasai_armory where we met the rep for @deepeddyvodka and tried their watermelon peach Arnold Palmer. From there, we went over to @thehopsspot and enjoyed their purple berry slushie before heading to @clintonstreetpub to have raspberry sweet tea. Next stop? @saltcitybar for their pineapple basil mule. There is no contest for me - they had THE BEST cocktail! From there we headed to @threelivesbar for another sweet tea drink, then across the street to @funknwaffles. We told the bartender to get creative and make us something unique - best decision ever. Our vanilla White Russian was phenomenal! I will be ordering that again soon. Next up was @boardandbarcharcuterie with their Orange creamsicle cocktail - another popular choice for the crawlers. It was delish! We ended the day at @saltinecuse to enjoy the buffet from Limp Lizard. Overall, we had a blast! @deepeddyvodka supplied lots of great swag and we loved how creative some of the bars were with their vodka. Plus, figuring out the clues to get to the next stop was so much fun. Until next time! #deepeddyvodka #deepeddy #syracuse #syracuseny #cuse #syracuseeats #syracusedrinks #wheresyracuseeats #wheresyracusedrinks #visitsyracuse #eatlocalnewyork #eatlocal #drinklocal #supportlocal #syracusefood #syracusefoodie #upstate #upstateny #upstatenewyork #cocktailbar #vodka #thisisupstate #cocktail #cocktails #cocktailsofinstagram #drinkstagram #cocktailblogger #foodcritic #downtownsyracuse

Another day, another mural. This beauty struck my eye when I was with some friends in Williamsville last month. Designed by @chrisp_af to honor the pollinators in Pocket Park, the mural was the first public art addition to Williamsville in 2020. . . #williamsville #williamsvilleny #pocketpark #buffalo #buffalony #visitbuffaloniagara #buffalonewyork #upstateny #upstate #upstatenewyork #westernny #mural #muralart #murals #muralpainting #muralsofinstagram #buffaloart #newyorkstate #streetart #streetartphotography #streetarteverywhere #butterflies #bees #beesofinstagram #pollinator #pollinators #newyorkblogger
