Hi again! Danny here.
Welcome again to the site! Here's a bit more about me and Coddiwomp...
Like lots of people, I love to travel. For me though, it has become more than just an amazing thing to do- more than just seeing incredible parts of the world or forging new, awesome memories. In my mind, travel has become a concept and a way of life, identifiable through the feeling it evokes in me. I have come to see travel as a feeling as much as it is a thing. Enter Coddiwomp!
I want Coddiwomp to represent this travel feeling and to use this as a foundation to support first-time, aspiring travellers to go on an adventure. Through inspiration and advice I want to help anyone with travel on their to-do list move one step closer to their first trip, creating a supportive community of aspiring travellers and travel lovers along the way. If you haven't been travelling before, I want this site to be everything you need to experience the travel feeling.

The Travel Feeling
What is the Travel Feeling? An intro...
Excitement, fear, happiness, trepidation, hope, uncertainty, contentment- the travel feeling is all of these, and none of them.
It is diverse and varies by time, place and person, but you’ll find shared characteristics to it regardless of who you are, where you are and what you’re doing. Ask travellers and you’ll hear descriptions of a deep and visceral sensation of stepping into the unknown, seizing life in both hands, living for the moment and creating unforgettable memories.
It is an intense longing for adventure and new experience; the nagging desire to leave behind the safety and banality of everyday life in exchange for exploration and discovery.
Once you’ve experienced the travel feeling, it is difficult to put out of your mind. It latches its claws onto you, gets under your skin and seeps into your bones, leaving you fundamentally changed and wanting more. I am forever, inextricably hooked.
