I’m so glad you’re here!

Hello, I’m Ai, a coffee addict and lover of adventures. When we’re not out traveling, you can find me at home trying new recipes and doing crafts.

I was born in Tokyo (1/2 Japanese, 1/2 African-American) and have been traveling my entire life. I’m a military brat and met my husband while he was serving in the USMC in Okinawa. We’ve been traveling and eating ever since. Some of our favorite places are Hong Kong, New Zealand, and Italy.

We have a little boy who is non-stop fun and energy. He’s inquisitive, loves puzzles, and gives the best hugs and high fives.

On my blog you’ll find travel tips, tasty recipes, and our random life in Florida and beyond, plus everything in between!
