On my recent trip to Japan, we were able to experience culture and great food. After a full day of shopping and traveling by train, our friends took us to this tiny ramen shop in Kichijoji. This black sesame tan tan ramen was one of the best things we ate on our trip.

Our cruise started in Yokohama and took us to Hokkaido, that’s known for their seafood. We visited 2 morning markets where the public can purchase fresh tako (octopus), hotate (scallop), kani (crab) and at really low prices.

Wanderlust and Wine.

I was lucky enough to go on retreat in Southern France led by a graphic designer & yoga teacher I idolize that encompassed all my favorite things: art, yoga, writing, music and WINE. I got to stay in a beautiful castle and met incredible people from around the globe.

Ian Survives Peru.

The ceviche and Pisco Sours were tasty, but the Andes were the highlight for sure. Found a Peruvian mountain guide + donkey escort (muchas gracias, Hector!) and headed into the Cordillera Blanca for a couple weeks of amazing hiking and ice climbing.
