About me

Hello, my name is Dan, senior designer at ShopTo, own a house and have a wife. Welcome to Travels in Gaming. A somewhat left-field travel blog where I’ll share in my digital, 1080p, 60fps journey. Looking at games from a sideways perspective, treating them like a getaway, a holiday from my 9-5. Meeting new friends, exploring new universes & saving the princess.

I have already visited New York, The Mushroom Kingdom, Hyrule, Feudal Japan & LittleBIGPlanet, but many new destinations lay ahead. There’ll also probably be the odd review, maybe even some self-created fan art.

But mostly, this is a journal, my diary, my passport – where trophies are my stamps.

It all started way back in the late 80′s when my parents… I mean Santa Claus… brought me a NES & Super Mario Brothers. It was love at first sight. As not everyone understands the wonderful world of gaming I thought I’d start a blog, share my thoughts, trials and show people where I’ve been through the wonderful medium of the interwebnet.

Thanks for looking, if you like what your reading please follow me, add me on PS4/Vita & Twitter (@mynameisdan) and maybe look at my website: http://www.mynameisdan.co.uk
