Louisville, KY
Hometown: Highlands

Organizer since:

January 9, 2011


There's nothing quite like the feeling of your airplane landing in a new country and setting off in a taxi ready to explore it! I love getting out and seeing the world and learning about ways of life different than my own.

What attracted you to this group?

I know there are like-minded people in Louisville that are interested in traveling, eating international food, learning about other cultures, and that are just interested in the world around them, in general. I set up this group up to meet them!

Do you speak any other languages or have origins in a different country?

I try to speak Spanish. A big reason I enjoy traveling to Latin America is to practice it in the real world, rather than another classroom!

What have been some of your most memorable travel destinations?

India, Bolivia, Thailand, Laos, Cambodia, Vietnam, Argentina, Morocco, Bali...

Ethnic restaurants in town that you would suggest for monthly dinner meetups?

Dakshin (Indian restaurant), Havana Rumba, Queen of Sheba, El Mundo (if it were ever possible to get a table!)

Locally-owned, independent places that you'd like to go to for a travelers happy hour?

Flanagan's, Dragon King's Daughter, Shenanigans, The Bard's Town

    I am sorry that you won't be joining us for Ethiopian. I couldn't help but notice you have K-food in your pic. That will certainly make the rotation. Until next time ~ cheers!

    Hey Danielle. Not sure if you remember me but we met through Erika more than six months ago. I just got back from my trip and wanted to officially join the group. I look forward to seeing you again.

    Hi Danielle,
    Speaking of travels, I just returned last night from St. John's and was RSVPing for event, however it is full. Perhaps I can be on the cancellation list.

    Hi Danielle:

    The Beer Fest is sold out. There might be some tix being sold on Craig's List which you can check out and get one that way.
    If not, maybe I'll see you at the next event! ;)

    Hi Danielle, I decided to check out the exchange club and dinner. I found doors locked, no tables and a ladder in the middle of the floor. Have they moved or did they go out of business? There's a great cuban restaurant in New Albany if they've gone out of business.

    Thanks Danielle for adding it to the list. Petra is at 3904 Bardstown Rd., the section of it that runs next to Buechel Bypass. --Hookah pipes sure smell better than cigarettes!
