Honeymoon (pt 2): EVERYONE needs to go to Kaikoura.

May 12, 2017

  Kaikoura was one of the places we were most excited to visit. It’s the place on the South Island that’s known for its whale-watching tours and beautiful beaches and views. That’s the main thing, at least. In 2016, it became known for how much damage had occurred there due to the most recent earthquake: […]

This is a post about our Honeymoon (part 1)

I’ve been meaning to write about it. I WANT to write about it. I just don’t know where to start, or how to talk about it. There is literally too much to write about. At first I thought I might write 14 posts for 14 days. But some days weren’t that amazing, and I don’t think […]

I tried Wild Fern’s Manuka Honey products

I am going to admit something: I’m not really one to pay attention to beauty products. I don’t read magazines and I don’t own a TV. There’s not a lot of advertising that reaches me lately, especially when you consider the language barrier: my Japanese sucks, so even the ads on the train don’t really […]

No, you won’t be able to come back this way and take that photo tomorrow. This is the story of my life and I think a sound argument against procrastination. Or at least, it’s MY sound argument for why I don’t (read: can’t) procrastinate. Mark gets annoyed with me sometimes because I have a physical need […]

I’m not sure if we ever actually decided that was what we would do, but our conversations tend to be ‘where are we going for your/my birthday this year?’. I don’t know when that […]

I left my country to work in another one. I’d tried multiple times to get a better job or position in my own country, and it was clear no one wanted to hire me. So I took my chances abroad. There were plenty of jobs for people like me, and I was quickly taken on […]

I survived: the blaring summer heat at Tokyo’s Summer Sonic 2016!

September 15, 2016

We decided to do shit right this time around, since Radiohead and Underworld headlined this year’s Summer Sonic in Tokyo and Osaka. We actually rushed and bought our tickets online while we were at the airport in January, waiting to board our flight to England. As soon as the tickets were available, we jumped on […]
