  • Description

    We are a couple from Victoria, British Columbia in Canada. We have been living and working here together and are getting ready for our second trip together abroad. Michael is a chef and I (Maya) have a degree in art history and work in a gallery and as a ceramic artist. Mike is travelling to Japan for the third time, however it will be my first time. We both are very passionate about food, travel, photography and writing and would like to practice and and expand our knowledge through our travels in Japan. We both really enjoy the outdoors, reading, meeting new people and learning new things from those we meet throughout all cycles of life. We like being pushed outside our comfort zone and enjoy exploring new countries and cultures.
    Upon our extended travels through Asia we plan to immerse ourselves in local culture and cuisine and collaborate on a photography/cookbook, telling the stories of those we meet along the way.
