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…

Stop & Smell the Roses in Ashikaga

If you’re a fan of roses, gardens or just flowers in general, Ashikaga Flower Park is a must-see when you’re in central Japan. It’s located in the Tochigi prefecture, about two hours away from Tokyo. One of its most popular attractions is the Wisteria Festival in April and early May, but there’s still plenty to…

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

French Toast By The Beach

Breakfast is my favorite meal. It’s the only one that offers both sweet or savory fare as the main dish. You can have steak, pastry, or both, and not only is it perfectly acceptable, it’s the standard (well… depending on the country you’re in). I tend to eat dessert first at dinner because I like to…

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.

Climbing Mt. Apsan

It can be hard to get a workout in when you’re traveling. Between sightseeing, food tasting, experiencing new things and meeting new people, who has the time?!?  

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.

Tokyo Tower Cherry Blossoms 🌸

The magic and splendor of cherry blossoms are long gone in Tokyo. But if you’re not ready for the season to be over just yet, there’s still a little time to enjoy the blooms (well… virtual ones at least).
