Danielle Maxey is the founder of the blog Atlas Calling. She has her BA in Anthropology and Classics, with an emphasis in Classical archaeology. She graduated from the University of Colorado, Boulder in 2016 and attended the University of College Dublin in 2015. She also participated in the Western Argolid Regional Project, an archaeological field school in the countryside in Greece. It was this that led her to her love of travel. Between her break in Greece and Ireland, she decided to continue traveling. When she was not able to finish school early, she returned to Colorado, U.S., to finish her studies with the plan of moving to Indonesia after graduation. This did not happen as she had slowly started getting sick while traveling and continued to get worse in her final semester. Now over a year and a half later, she is ready to start her travels again.
Danielle hopes to inspire people through her travels as well as share any advice and tips she has picked up along the way. She also hopes to amuse people through her numerous travel mishaps.
Danielle is an outdoor enthusiast but particularly enjoys skiing, snowboarding, hiking, climbing, and backpacking. She hopes to add white water kayaking and skydiving to that list soon. If you can't find her, look to the mountains. She is a ski and snowboard instructor in the winter months in her home state. She has taken up photography in the little free time she has left, and is currently working on her first novel.
