    Best Ramen JAX? A Review of Popular Domu Ramen

    I am from Tokyo, Japan. This little bit of information is important because I’m from probably the best place to eat ramen in the world (I am also very biased). I make ramen at home but it’s a LOT of work. So naturally, I’m constantly on the hunt for a great place to eat a […]

    What’s in my favorite camera bag

    What’s in my favorite camera bag? I’ve had a DSLR for 10 years now. 10 years ago, my then boyfriend (now husband, yay) bought me a really cute camera bag that held a small DSLR with the kit lens. It was a little shoulder bag that was perfect for short trips. In 2012, I took […]

    10 Must Haves for International Travel with Toddlers

    I have been traveling internationally for my entire life. I was born into a military family and married a military dude (go figure).

    Atlanta Children’s Museum: How to Have the Best Time

    We drove to Atlanta for my husband’s jujitsu competition. My in-laws drove in from the west to meet us there for some fun family time. One of the things on our to-do list was the Children’s Museum of Atlanta. We’ve been to several children’s hands on museum, but knew this was probably the largest one […]

    Review of the Remarkable Mountain Buggy Swift Stroller

    We travel often and usually at least once a year halfway across the world. In the three years that we’ve been parents, we’ve tried a few strollers. But none of them have quite fit our needs. They’re usually bulky and turned very sluggishly, getting hung up on everything as you try to navigate the airport. […]

  • Muscadine Grape Picking at Congaree & Penn Farm- Jacksonville, FL Travel Blog

    We loooove fruit picking. Like, I’m pretty sure every time we’re on vacation or work trip, we check to see if there’s somewhere local to pick whatever is in season. It’s probably because I grew up in Tokyo where these type of opportunities are fairly scarce and pretty expensive. So when my husband was researching […]

  • South Carolina Travel Vlog: Summerville

    A couple of weekends ago, we went to Summerville, SC. It’s just a little south of Charleston and such a fun, quaint area to explore. There’s great food, fun museums, historic homes, and a wonderful downtown area. During the warmer months, there’s a farmers’ market on Saturday’s. Every time we’ve stopped there, we’ve also met […]
