I'm Daniela! Welcome to my sites EarthyMe + EarthyUniversity. This is my place to share with you my fascination for planet Earth and the natural sciences.
Daniela holds two bachelor's degrees in geosciences (B.Sc.) and business administration with tourism (B.A.). She is the founder and owner of EarthyMe and EarthyUniversity and currently studies for a master's degree in geosciences.

I love landscapes. I love beautiful, jaw-dropping, mind-boggling landscapes. All sorts of them. Rugged mountains, pristine beaches, blue water, green pasture and forests, dry shrubland, deserts and rain forests. I can see the beauty and magnificence in all of them.
And I love to learn about them (because knowledge makes those places even more astounding) – and to share this knowledge with you.
Meaningful life experiences are created by fully immersing and connecting ourselves with the places we live at and the places we visit. In my eyes, knowledge about these places is the ultimate building block for forming strong bonds that result in lasting, transformative and sustainable life and travel experiences.
At EarthyMe you will find information about the geology and nature of intriguing places, scenery and landscapes as well as fascinating and important facts about Earth and contempary challenges.
Knowledge about places connects us to it in a profund way that has the power to transform the way we perceive the world and make decisions. Education, knowledge, insights and an emotional connection are giant leaps towards preservation, as they enable us to make better, informed decisions for everyone.
I hope that by going a little further, deeper, into geosciences (geology), you will start to gain a perspective on life and Earth – one that will leave you in awe and that will inspire you to care for our planet, for the sake of humanity and all other organisms, just a little more.
This is what I do specifically:
- EarthyUniversity: A platform I created that offers travel classes about specific destinations.
- The Science of Travel Blog: In this blog you'll read stories, interviews with special guests and scientific information about Earth as they relate to nature, travel destinations, the processes of our planet as a whole.
- Stories of Earth: A free newsletter that tells stories of Earth, travel destinations and natural attractions. I'll also send out notifications for the latest Science of Travel blog.
I support the TurtleFoundation with annual donations.
Thank you so much for being here and spending your time with me.
PS: I consider myself a life-long learner and will be deepening my knowledge about Earth my entire life - because there is just so much to learn, to correlate and to put into a larger context. I'm not a geology expert (yet), this means there'll probably be a few things I'll get wrong. And even if I were an expert, I'd still be wrong sometimes - even experts will never have all the answers! And that's okay - afterall, we're humans in a world that is ruled by laws we will probably never fully comprehend. However, naturally, you can expect that I'm always giving my all to deliver correct, well-researched information.
