When I wasn’t exploring Yogyakarta or returning domesticated parakeets to the wild during my two months in Indonesia, I was working in the studio with my artist-mentor, Mella.

The “studio” was an old, white, square-shaped building with a garden in the middle. It was built sometime between the late sixteenth…


Train in Tokyo moving between buildings

Previously visiting a new country required a lot of planning; but thanks to the internet, things have gotten a lot easier and faster. You can quickly find reputable and cheap accommodation, taxis and places to sightsee.
