WELCOME! ようこそ!

I’m Rin, a 20 something year old designer-writer. I’m a British born ATCK, since the nature of my parents work has meant that I’ve spent most of my life among other cultures, even though, as a family we never lived outside of the UK for that long. This background has it’s ups-and-downs, but at the end of the day I’m so thankful that it’s a part of who I am. Now I’m living and working in Osaka, Japan.

This is my blog where I write about things I experience and pickles I get into, always as seen through my cross-cultural specs. The pickles part happens quite regularly, I think it must be a gift…All is well and good though because I also love telling stories and this ‘gift’ keeps me well supplied with narratives. I hope that my sharing these will either amuse you, make you wonder or, if you  identify, then encourage you (hey – if we’re lucky we might even get all 3).

I’d love this to be a responsive blog, so please do comment or send me a message if you have a question or if anything you strikes a chord. It’d be great to hear from you!
