What’s up world! I’m Dan!
I’m the mastermind of the plan and the brains of the operation. I come from a hard-working, blue collar, Irish-Italian American family who fought hard to ensure I would be the first of the clann to graduate college. It didn’t take me long to work my way up the corporate ladder and after 7 years of 60+ work weeks I was a made man, but then I started looking around. It didn’t appear as though there was an end in sight and the thought of waking up one day at 50-years-old with an empty passport and regrets scared the shit out of me. I’ve always had a dream of traveling freely, while others were doing this in college and shortly after, I was putting in overtime. Truth is, I never put too much thought into my future, I just figured if I kept moving forward and going with the flow good things would happen. But it suddenly became crystal clear to me that this is how people fall into the trap, the trap where life takes control of you and you are so busy being distracted that you can’t even see whats happening around you.
Somewhere between our wedding in Aruba and our dream honeymoon to South Africa, it hit me like a ton of bricks. We need to do something and we need to do it NOW. So we did.
If we can inspire just one person or couple or family to take a trip that they remember for the rest of their lives, or inspire somebody to make a change in their life for the better, we have succeeded in our mission.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy the show!
