Thanks for stopping by!

I’m Christine, a free-spirited Korean American gal and lady errant at heart. I’m a born-and-raised Michigander and have recently lived in Chicago for two years. I currently work as a marketing professional for an incredible architecture and design firm, and have also held a number of Food & Beverage service gigs throughout my career. I’m passionate about travel, hospitality, global education and new, meaningful experiences.

Growing up (and occasionally struggling) with a bicultural identity has given me a deeply rooted appreciation for—and respectful desire to learn from—different backgrounds and walks of life. I also had the privilege to live and attend school in Japan as a child, and am very thankful for my study abroad experiences in Peru and the Yucatan, Mexico during college. Throughout the years, I’ve developed a nearly insatiable wanderlust to the point where I finally decided to stop twiddling my thumbs and do something about it. My journey to get there is still a messy, blundering work in progress, but I’m more than excited to share it with you through this blog!

Whenever I’m not daydreaming about my next adventure, I love to read, run and try out new recipes. Family means everything to me (including my Misha, the most adorable, spoiled and feisty mini dachshund in the world). My guilty pleasures include way too much coffee and champagne and binge-watching K-dramas. Oh, and I’m all about shamelessly taking them #foodporn pics galore!
