Oh, hai. How’s it goin’?

Thanks for checking out my site.

I’m Jennifer. You can call me Jennifer, or you can call me by my nickname, Stewie. Either is okay. 🙂 I currently live in Nagoya, Japan, where I’ve been for the last six years with super awesome husband.

I guess you want to know my story, right?

At the end of 2012, I quit my English teaching job in Korea, and came to Japan to start another English teaching job. After two years of teaching in an elementary school, I was feeling exhausted, frustrated, uncreative, undervalued, and just plain angry. A nerd for anything and everything educational, I thought going back to school would be a smart turn of events in my quest to discover my career path. So, I studied Japanese for one year before starting grad school. In 2017, I graduated with a Master’s Degree, and am currently working on a PhD (eeeek!)

And what about the blog?

After finishing writing my Master’s thesis, I found myself with a lot of free time. So, I started a blog. It began without much thought, other than a place to write about my travels and other random things that happen when you live in a foreign country. I had no idea niche blogs were a thing, or that you could turn them into legitimate businesses. My blog went through phases of discovery. The ambiguous “lifestyle” blog. General travel blog. Travel blog with focus on Japan. Japan travel blog.

My blog has been a wonderful and much-needed creative outlet. I was always making art growing up, but life has a way of crushing your creativity, doesn’t it? To up the creativity, I decided to bring photography into my blog, specifically iPhone photography. Since getting my iPhone two years ago, I’ve been able to develop my photography skills and creativity, and I wanted to include this on my blog. And I wanted to help others with their iPhone travel photography.

Taking great photos is important (and fun!), so I’ve created a free email course to help you learn how to take amazing iPhone travel photos.

Thanks again for sticking around, and I hope you’ll sign up for more!


PS – I can’t decide if I should spell “traveller” and “Travelling” with one or two Ls. One L is the preferred US spelling, and two Ls is the preferred UK spelling. Since Canada generally follows UK spelling rules, I guess I’m supposed to stick with two Ls. But somehow, one L looks nicer to me. Alas, I cannot decide, and you will see both on my site. Please forgive my inconsistency.
