Arthurs Seat EdinurghHi there! My name is Dante Scarano, I am a 24 year old explorer that enjoys the little things in life – like writing and photography, just to name a few. I grew up in a sleepy little town on the coastline in Connecticut in the United States; this suburban hell is what pushed me to find out more about the world. I recently received my degree in History, which further drove me to go and explore more about the histories and cultures that fill this World.

When I’m not on the road eating from any and every food stall, I work at a seafood restaurant as a cook where I daydream about traveling everyday. (Don’t worry I don’t burn the food!) Usually in the Summer, on my off days I longboard around my town, and in the Winter I snowboard. Two hobbies that I would very much like to incorporate into my travels someday.

Siem Reap, CambodiaFrom a young age I was exposed to flying, something so un-natural for us, human beings, it still totally freaks me out. A lot of people would ask me: “How can you love to travel and yet be so afraid of flying?”. The answer I think is obvious, while it’s true that flying does turn me into a nervous wreck, there is some otherworldly desire that I have to travel. Whether it is the goofy adventures I seem to get myself into, traditions to learn about, or culture to experience first-hand, I think that is enough fuel for me to overcome the initial fear of flying.

My first trip out of the country was to the land of Japan. A culture and language so vastly different than mine, it would make any New Englander’s head spin. I was definitely thrown into the deep end, up to my eyes in not having a clue what to say, or do. Through countless days of jetlag, using my pointer finger to order food, I emerged as a hardy traveler ready to take on the world. I think it is this unknown that keeps drawing me back into traveling through countries vastly more different than my own.
