Diane Daniel is an American freelance writer and journalist based in Veldhoven, the Netherlands, with an occasional presence at her “North American headquarters” of Indian Rocks Beach, Florida. She writes about travel, the environment, artists, activists, and other topics that interest her. In the travel realm, she advocates for what she calls preservation travel — travel that preserves cultures and community, history, buildings, and the environment.
Diane writes for newspapers, magazines, websites and more, including The Boston Globe (her last office job), the New York Times, the Washington Post, National Geographic Traveler, American Craft magazine, and other publications. She has spent most of her career on the US East Coast, from Florida to Boston and, most recently, a dozen years in Durham, North Carolina. She relocated to the Netherlands in late 2014. Tot ziens!
