July 2017 Update –
I’m still living in Kanazawa, Japan. Looks like I stayed a bit longer than a year!
What have I been up to? Well, I ventured out of Japan a few times; visiting Beijing, Seoul, and Ulaanbaatar. In the past four years I have also traveled back to the United States a few times. I also spent a lot of time skiing in Nozawa Onsen this past winter.
Currently I am working on building an Instagram page (@ladycaladium) where I post photos taken with my iPhone. I am also working on a new photo book, but it is a work in progress. I am also working on a few different projects. I’ll try to keep you posted, so check back every so often!
Life in Japan with Lady Caladium chronicles my experiences moving to and living in Kanazawa, Japan. Check in, see what happens and where this year abroad brings me…
I am currently living in western Japan. I teach English but spend my free time exploring the beautiful Hokuriku area. I studied anthropology and Asian studies at university and plan to go back and pursue a graduate degree. I will be in Japan until mid-July, 2015.
I have always loved to travel. While my list isn’t as extensive as a lot of people’s, I have traveled to the UK (living in Wales and visiting England and Scotland – including a trip to the Shetland Islands), Rome, Amsterdam, Malta, and Canada. I plan to travel more in the future.
I really would love to visit the Faroe Islands, Vietnam, Bhutan, China, Mongolia, and Iceland (among other places). I don’t really enjoy the sun or heat, so laying out on a tropical island is out.
