About Me


Travel all over the world


I'm a Easy going person been in floating life.
but Always high motivated, trying to improve myself!

you can see my YOGA skills click to link Healing YOGA SANTI
I can give you a free morning yoga lessons when I stay your place.

Me and my husband and our son(3years old now) moved down to the coast in Iwaki city, Fukushima, Japan in 2008 where is my husband's hometown to build our house.
We were living there when the the huge disaster of March 11 occurred.
Our brand new house which was on the beachside, was ravaged by tsunami and decided to evacuate to south by my small van.
In this we were lucky because it means we were not there when the explosion occurred at the Fukushima Daiichi Nuclear Power Plant, also on the next day when radiation was highest in the area.
We have not been able to return to our home so far because of worries about radiation, even this house still stand and we renovated all for future.

But our normal life was disrupted, we had to leave our regular stable jobs and our house, which we had not long before just finished building.

We feel worried about moving back to our house in Fukushima for a few years until the nuclear plant is brought to a more stable state,
and radiation cleanup is completed. even we still have to pay the Huge house loan.
We therefore feel that this is a great opportunity, while we are away from stable jobs and not yet sure if we will return to our house in Fukushima or settle elsewhere in Japan or to travel the world.
so far, we want to leave Japan for 2~3 years until we feel the radiation and nuclear plant are more under control and stable.
While away we will have time to consider where we would like to resettle after we return to Japan.
We gonna start enjoy traveling and tourism, to KYUSHU SIKOKU area in Japan and Australia to India for escape from the stress and worry of living in Fukushima for a while.
