Daniel is a British bloke who works with Skyscanner and LonelyPlanet on the regular. He’s an amazing writer with tons of useful tips, and is an even better photographer.

His photography has also been published in Beautiful Destination, Travel & Leisure, National Geographic, Travel Channel and Matador Network.
