My Kyushu Recommendations: A personal guide
Over the course of the four years we've lived in Fukuoka I've had many friends and acquaintances from home contact me for tips on travel in Japan, and Fukuoka/Kyushu in particular.

What’s a trip to Fukuoka without indulging in some of the amazing local food? Fresh, cheap, trendy and delicious dining options are everywhere in the city. This little list of places to eat in Fukuoka comes as an add-on to my personal guide to Kyushu.

Photo diaries from our honeymoon trip to Iceland in the summer of 2015. We saw as much of Iceland's varied landscapes, animals, tourist spots and hidden spots as possible in 16 days. Add to that lots of bathing, swimming, hiking, eating, laughing - what more could you ask for?
