Elementary School Lunch: 04/18 - kinpira
 Today's lunch, though fulfilling at the time, didn't keep me full as long as usual. I was hungry again three hours later for some reason. I don't think it's because I left half the rice, either - I usually do that. Maybe roots and bamboo just don't keep hu...

Bite-Sized Book Reviews: Diana Wynne Jones triple feature (Chrestomanci)
In my continued quest to eventually read all of Diana Wynne Jones' works, I've started picking up the Christomanci books (thanks to my local library). As it turns out, you could pretty much jump in with any book in the series, which is nice. Although some c...

Elementary School Lunch: .04/11 - mochi in the kimchi
First Friday back! We enjoyed Korean food - bibimbap and kimchi soup. The rice came separate from the fixings, as usual, and the soup wasn't actually spicy at all since it's for kids. The bibimbap had some meat with onions, veggies, and scrambled egg which ...

Elementary School Lunch: 04/14 - Meatball Monday
Who says Mondays have to be all bad? It's the beginning of a new week, and today's lunch was awesome. The main dish today was meatball and vegetable soup (tomato base). On the side, some tuna salad and kinako age-pan (fried bread with soy flour on top), and...

Story
Tagline
Freelance Photographer and Writer from Miami and currently living in Japan. I like to travel!
Introduction
You may read me on Tomopop. I also run my personal photo/travel blog, Snapitude. If you want to read where I "let my hair down," I run a nerd culture blog called GeekeryDo! You'll also see my work Quirk Books and Bookalicious.

My goal is to become a professional, well-known travel writer some day over the rainbow. Whenever I've got the time and money, I go away somewhere and come back with stories and pictures, which I enjoy sharing. I also like reading other travel stories and learning from other photographers. 

Oh, and I read. A lot.
Bragging rights
I've traveled to more than 12 different countries. That's something to brag about, right? I also can speak in five languages.
