Having grown up in northern Australia where it doesn’t snow at all, snow is very exciting for me. It was basically what I was most looking forward when I learnt that I would be moving to Fukui.
Over this past weekend, Fukui had its heaviest snowfall in some time. While it did snow last year, it was nowhere near as much as this past weekend, so to say I was excited is a bit of an understatement.
However, since it was snowing quite heavily for most of the weekend, I waited until it settled down before heading out to enjoy it… which didn’t happen until Saturday night. So, camera in hand, I headed out for a late night stroll in the snow.

I’ve started quite a few blogs over the years, only to abandon them completely and eventually start anew. It goes without saying that this particular blog may just be another part of the cycle, but given that I’ve bought a domain baring my name, I’m hoping that this will be the one that sticks.
So, I hope that you, person of the internet, will join me as I attempt to pursue my passions―photography, videography, and writing―and share them with the world. I can’t promise that I will post her regularly, especially since I also happen to do these things for my work, but I try to post when I can, even if it’s a seemingly meaningless ramble about life as an expat.
In the meantime, here’s the latest video I posted on YouTube:
