We are a Finnish-English family from Brighton, England. In March 2014 we moved to Osaka, Japan for three years without any real prior experience of the culture, people or places in Japan. This blog is about our experience of life and people in Japan, and what faux pas we make and what awkward situations we find ourselves in because we dont know the language or the Japanese way to behave.

I blog about international education, learning languages, and traveling. I am in a long distance, international relationship and I love reading books and heading to concerts! I also practice traditional Japanese archery (kyudo). I am a drama-holic and I love to dance!

My name is Kelsey. I love to travel and explore. I am currently living in China and teaching english. During my breaks from school I enjoy working with WWOOF (world wide opportunities on organic farms), which allows me to meet people, travel, and get my hands dirty.
Glenda always wanted to be a writer so she started this blog last 2007 and records her day to day experiences, places she have been, her first job, friends and family gatherings and basically anything under the sun that keep her alive and kicking ;)
This blog was initially inspired by the "How to be Alone" video by Andrea Dorfman and Tanya Davis. Since I came to live in South Korea alone, and began making adventures and memories for myself in a foreign place, I want to show that I can overcome the negative connotations that the word "alone" is associated with. I started this journey to South Korea alone, but through my blog you will see how alone is okay and you will meet people along the way that will change your life. None of that would have or could have happened if I didn't make that leap alone, first. This blog is also a big platform for my photography. If you're in South Korea and are interested in taking some pictures, let me know!
