Hi my name is Deanna Parenti! I am the author and editor of Distance with Deanna. My whole life I have loved the idea of going on adventures and trying new things. Because of my wanderlust, I have also been obsessed with reading. I love absorbing the words on the pages before me, allowing myself to be transported to another world to fulfill my incessant need for exploration. In the last few years, I have decided one of my dreams is to combine these two beautiful passions of mine. So, I decided to create Distance with Deanna to create a space where I can publish articles I write about the places I experience. One of my main goals is to show people that not only can you go on adventures without buying an one thousand dollar plane ticket, but also that you get the most from an experience when you do it the “local way”. Welcome to my world of words, I hope you have a wonderful adventure.
