About Me


Sharing wonderful stories


Hi there! I spent most of my life in Kobe, Japan but i was in Northern Ireland studying music as an exchange student for a year, and in Guilin in China teaching music for kids for two years.

Love travelling especially through volunteer activities. i have taken part in workcamps in Germany, UK and China, and each experience was awesome! Love meeting new people and exchanging travel stories.

Always up for coffee and drinks (pinting lol)!!

It's better to regret something you have done than something you haven't done.
