POTD: Summer Nights in Ginza

Summer nights are made for ice cream and sunsets, and in Ginza, Tokyo’s upscale shopping and entertainment district, you can get the best of both. This neighborhood houses all the top luxury brand stores (Hermes, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, etc.), a plethora of gourmet restaurants, and the famous Kabuki-za Theatre. I like visiting Ginza this time…

POTD: Sunset on Sunset Beach

There are fewer things more beautiful than watching the sky change colors. It looks a little bit like magic. Seeing it turn shades of pink and orange before finally transforming into a deep, midnight blue is fascinating. It happens every day, yet somehow, it amazes me every time I see it. This sunset was extra spectacular…

POTD: A Walk In The Park

The sun came out today for the first time in about a week! I realize it’s winter here in Australia, and rain and cool weather are the norm this time of year, but man oh man have I missed the warmth and vibrance that the sunshine brings. It’s an instant mood booster and makes me…

Simple Things

The past seven weeks have been a whirlwind. I’ve been traveling and working non-stop. When I’m not working, I’m checking out new places or planning my next adventure.

Buildings & Bake Shops in Daegu

I stumbled upon this building while exploring the streets of Daegu, South Korea. I was desperately searching for something to satisfy my sweet tooth when I saw it. It was love at first sight.

Charming Jinhae

My recent adventures in South Korea took me to Jinhae, a charming, small-ish city along the southeastern coast of the Korean Peninsula.

Enlightenment

One of my favorite things to do while traveling through Asia is to visit temples. There’s just something so calming and therapeutic about it for me.

Summertime Dreaming

One of the best parts about visiting Okinawa is island hopping. There are quite a few isles that surround (and are part of) the main archipelago, Okinawa Honto.

Perusing Pike Place

It was four years ago, almost exactly. I stopped in Washington for a few days to visit family before moving across the globe to Japan. My sister lived near (but not in) Seattle, and during my very short trip, she brought me here.
