  2. Thank you Harry! I look forward to sharing my adventures with you. The coming months promise to be very exciting. In just three weeks, I am heading to the heart of the Himalayas. Many adventures awaits 🙂 Remember November 13th the ride begins!!!

  3. Haha Mi Churra! Te deje un comentario pero no se donde salio =P Congratulations on the site! It’s brilliant! Todo el exito del mundo mi bella. Mua!

  4. Hey Dany, questo sito e bellissimo…but I don’t see us anywhere….un abbraccio ….Thana

  5. Thank you Thana! I am glad you like the site. Amiga there is an album of Dubai in the photo section. This is a public website. I know many people are ok to have their photos post in social networks, but they dont like to have their photos published on the web itself, so I tried to be very careful to respect their privacy. I have met wonderful people -like you- throughout these journeys and you guys are part of why I love traveling so much. You guys turn my trips into memorable experiencies. Precisely to respect the right of privacy of these people, I only add photos of those friends who are ok with having their photos posted online. If you are ok, I would be happy to add those photos to the UAE album 🙂 Besos

  6. Dani! I am very impressed with you website. Wish you the best, and I’m looking forward to read about your future trips!

  7. Thanks Vivi! It was done with a lot of love, but also a lot of effort. I hope people get to use the information and have fun with my adventures 🙂

  8. What a wonderful achievement Daniela! Congratulations

  12. Thank you so much Ozcan. I loved Turkey and I will be definitely going back there. I will keep you posted. Thanks again for your support and encouragement. Un abrazo

  13. Hi Daniela!
    We sat next to each other on my way back to Asia (but I think you got off in LA)…well, I went and checked out your site! very very useful and professional. No wonder during the flight you were so busy with your production slides, the only time you sit still is when you’re on a plane!

    I have shared your site with my extended Asia sales team (which is about 100+ people over the region)… so hopefully your site should get a few hits 😉

    by the way, you were right.. Thailand is amazing! How was Madagascar?


  14. Hola Randy!!! Glad to hear you enjoy Diaries and thank you SO much for doing PR for the site among your ad sales team!! 😉 I am so jealous you are in Thailand. Wish I were there! I am leaving to Madagascar on June 18th, so I will keep you posted on how that adventure goes. Beso and take care

  15. Hi, Daniela zavala
    Am your assistant guide called Atanas, I was so long time since we met here in Tanzania at kilimanjaro Mountain during this year (January 2011).hopefully your good enough.CONGRATS!! your website is much impressing me.I wish we can be in touch more so that we can share variety of life advice.

  16. Atanas!!! how great to hear from you!!! Did you see the videos of Kilimanjaro? They are in the africa section of the website. You are featured on it!!! Please keep in touch. I miss my tanzanian entourage! Please say hello to all the guys 😀

  17. Me encanta lo que haces pero que triste que seas de Venezuela y que no lo hayas incluido en tus viajes cuando esta la gran sabana con su Roraima el salto ángel y todas las etnias maravillosas q aun siguen sus tradiciones ahí que triste que teniendo el chance no le des al mundo a conocer el maravilloso país de donde vienes q tiene tantos lugares por explorar. Solo supe de ti xq una compatriota tuya puso en link de una entrevista q te hizo y entre a ver que lugares tenias de Venezuela.

  18. Hola Karina! Gracias por escribir. Creeme que sueno ir con la Gran Sabana y me encantaria poder retratar a Venezuela en algun diaries (espero que lo pueda hacer en un futuro no muy lejano). Quiero que sepas que no vivo en Venezuela desde hace 10 anos y lamentablemente (y aunque no lo creas) volar a Venezuela y viajar por Venezuela resulta mas caro que viajar a Europa, Asia y hasta Africa…para ponerte ejemplos concretos y en contexto, fui a visitar a mi familia y el pasaje a Caracas me salio $1,200 mientras mi pasaje a Iran me salio $750. Siempre sone con ir al Amazonas. Hice todas las averiguaciones pero volar a Venezuela me salia en ese momento por encima de los 800US$ y el viaje de una semana en el Amazonas de Venezuela (con tour) costaba mas de 2500 dolares. Termine yendome a Ecuador (pasaje 250US$) y con un tour al amazonas ecuatoriana con TODO incluido y salio solo $240. Ves la diferencia? Soy backpacker y bueno lamentablemente tuve que optar por lo que se ajustaba a mi presupuesto. Si el dinero no fuese una limitante, creeme que ya hubiese ido o me iria felizzzz YA a la Gran Sabana. Asi que querida Karina, si me consigues un patrocinante en Venezuela para irme a grabar alla, me monto en el primer avion y veras la historia en Diaries de inmediato! Tambien tienes que recordar que yo comence a documentar mis viajes a partir del 2009, es decir que no hay videos de los viajes previos en el trailer (y estamos hablando que para ese momento habia visitado mas de 50 paises ya). Aun me quedan muchisimos lugares por explorar y yo estoy abierta a todo… soy Venezolana y Latina, y siento un gran amor por mi pais y por Latinoamerica, pero de donde vengo y quien soy no me cierra ni limita a aprender de otros continentes y otras gentes diferentes a nosotros, asi que mente abierta y corazon abierto ante todo. Un abrazo y espero que me consigas el patrocinante para irme a la Gran Sabana 😉
