About Danielle

My name is Danielle Desir (read more about me here) and I am the founder of The Thought Card. The Thought Card is an award-winning affordable travel finance blog and podcast based in Connecticut (USA). I help travelers find creative ways to get the most out of their travel experiences and manage their money so they can travel more, pay off debt and build wealth. I love showing people how they can go out there and explore the world.

Engaging Content

I publish relevant content under these key seven travel and money pillars:


  • Affording Travel
  • Destinations
  • Adventure


  • Budgeting
  • Student Loans
  • Homeownership
  • Investing

This site is particulary geared towards women of color between the ages of 25 to 35 who are based within the United States.
