I follow Kat of Our Japanese Adventures on Instagram and I love the photos she posts, so I reached out and asked if she would participate in my Traveler Tuesday interview series. If I wasn’t a Francophile I would definitely be a Nipponophile, as I love all things Japanese (most especially the food of course!)

Let’s meet travel blogger Kat!
When and how did you become a traveler?
I actually started traveling when I was several months old, we went to the Big Island (Hawaii) to visit my grandparents.
Where do you love to travel?
My husband and I have a list we are working through but there are always “new” places that pop up, making our list longer!
Most memorable travel moment:
Seeing the sunrise at the top of Mount Fuji.
What won’t you travel without?
My husband and smartphone
A day isn’t complete until I…
Thank “that someone” for taking us through the day safely
A quirky daily habit of mine is…
Silently say “good morning” to the world as I open the curtains.
Travel essential – 3 things you always travel with:
Smartphone, journal & passport (if I’m traveling internationally)
Name one thing people would be surprised to find in your travel bag:
Bubble wrap (to bring home wine or anything bottled).
Perfect travel day from start to finish.
Weather is beautiful, see the sights on our itinerary (without getting lost) and return to the hotel safely.
What are your favorite food cities? What restaurants do you go to in each?
I love to eat so almost everywhere has been a favorite food city!
What has travel taught you?
Travel has taught me that life is an adventure, you never know how things will turn out.
What’s one location on your bucket list?
Andalucia, to see the sunflowers.
