“Travel isn’t always pretty, but that’s okay. The journey changes you; it should change you. It leaves marks on your memory, and on your body. You take something with you. Hopefully, you leave something good behind.”–Anthony Bourdain
I grew up in Auckland, New Zealand. I received my BA in Linguistics & Philosophy at the University of Auckland, and my MA in Applied Linguistics from the University of Birmingham in the UK. I have lived in Japan since 2011, and I find new and interesting things to learn and places to visit. I have enjoyed teaching all ages from elementary school to university.
