About Kaley

At the age of 22 I got my Bachelor of Arts from Florida State University in International Affairs and left America for Japan. My intent was to stay there for a year or two, learn the culture, and come back doing some sort of work involving the two countries. Four years and three cities later, I have just now come back to America and my entire world is different.

While living in Japan I first lived in the do-nothing prefecture of Yamaguchi. It's picturesque mountains and friendly people made me love Japan, and after some work complications I was transferred up to the snowy northern island of Hokkaido. For a year I lived in a small, 5,000 person village teaching elementary kids before I was moved to Sapporo, where I would live for over two years.

During my time in Japan I fell in love with travel. I loved learning about new cultures and exploring the world around me. Before moving overseas I had spent much of my free time watching historical documentaries and that's where my passion for different cultures began. America is a country of countries and nearly everyone has roots somewhere else, and I love finding out where certain aspects of American culture come from.

When I'm not traveling or planning to travel, I am usually reading. You can keep track of the books I've read over at Goodreads. I also enjoy cooking, and now that I am back in America with a usable kitchen at my disposal, I plan on taking full advantage of the abundance in the supermarkets. If I can find the time and motivation, I like writing fiction. I've completed NaNoWriMo the last couple of years and will be doing it again this year.

Oh, and I like photography. I have a Nikon D3300 that I take my photos with and I edit them in Photoshop.

As far as social media is concerned, my Instagram is probably the most used. Though I am trying my hardest to get better at Twitter. I also dabble in Pinterest where I collect recipes to try and travel info.

If you'd like to get in contact with me, you can send an email over to and I'll get back to you as soon as I can!
