How it all started

Hello and welcome to my site! My name is Laura and I'm so glad you've come to take a look round. 

This is essentially a space where my little thought bubbles drift to. My scribbles or published post it notes, if you will. 

I moved to Tokyo, Japan in 2018 after graduating from my degree. I'm originally from a small village no one has ever heard of in the United Kingdom and right after university I packed up my bags, signed a contract for a job in Japan and hopped on a plane. This is essentially what began my obsession with traveling. Once a science major, glued to the lab, now an adventure seeker taking life my the horns. 

On my site you can expect to find stories of my travels as I hop around the country I now live in and occasionally across oceans. I hope you'll join me on my adventures as I report my tips, experiences and tell you all my story. So sit back with a cup of tea and dive in.

See you soon!
