Hi there, I’m Danielle!

Welcome to Connecticut-Thought Card (CT-Thought Card), a local travel blog based in Fairfield and New Haven County, Connecticut.

Four years ago I moved to Bridgeport, Connecticut with my family. Now that I’m settled, I’m on a quest to experience all that Fairfield and New Haven County have to offer.

I created CT-Thought Card, to highlight what’s happening in my backyard because I believe in experiencing more without having to venture too far. This includes sharing thoughts and tips on local events, restaurants, attractions and more. I especially love the outdoors and discovering hidden gems. Not to mention local breweries and eateries, breathtaking viewpoints, scenic nature trails, sandy beaches and lots more.

You can follow CT-Thought Card on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram or subscribe to the newsletter.


About Me

I’m the Travel Finance Strategist behind the award-winning travel finance brand, The Thought Card. I love empowering those who want to travel afford travel and excel in their personal finances. I’ve traveled to over 23 countries and 3 continents, however, I love living in Connecticut.

When I’m not exploring new hiking trails or visiting coffee shops, you can find me at a park hanging out with my puppy Jada. From kayaking and stargazing to walking barefoot on the beach, I enjoy getting off the beaten path.

Jada loves Neatpack


What Is The Thought Card?

A few years ago when faced with a challenging situation, I started sending my loved ones “thought cards” expressing my thoughts and emotions. Eventually, they caught on and started sending them back – we’ve been doing this exchange ever since.

Reading each others’ thought cards always brought us closer and strengthened our bond.

CT-Thought Card is my way of bringing Fairfield County and New Haven County explorers and adventurers together. It’s a place to share the best local experiences including dining, entertainment, outdoors and culture without breaking the bank.
