Welcome to DantesDame.com, the best place to follow my travels whether they are simply commuting to work, traveling the back roads of southern Mexico or hitting the expansive tundra of the Arctic. Personal notes, travel journals and photos are here for your enjoyment. As always, feedback and comments are appreciated and the occasional constructive criticism will be tolerated.
“DantesDame” came about as a screen name in the early days of my computer online presence. Even at that time most of the unique-but-simple screen names were taken by other users of AOL Instant Messaging. I resorted to more creative and individualistic sources of inspiration. I had four cats and one by one I tried their names but to no avail. I then tried various combinations of words and names, eventually hitting upon “DantesDame”, figuring that Dante being one of my cats and I’m his “dame” it would work just fine. The moniker stuck as a user name and I am now known by hundreds as DantesDame, sometimes just “Dante” and occasionally by my real name, Colleen.
This website is still going through some revisions and I’m always striving to make it nicer looking and more interesting. So pour yourself a beverage, sit back and enjoy taking a journey with me. Hopefully you’ll be inspired to go on your own adventures and make memories that you can cherish for years to come.
