Adventuring the World
Living abroad and sharing the journey. Travel Guides, tips, and reviews!
Welcome to Maris Around the World
I am currently living and studying abroad in Fukuoka, Japan! As a big foodie and photography lover, I’m excited to share my favorite travel tips, restaurants, and stories about living abroad.
Picking up and moving to another country wasn’t an easy decision but I’m so happy to have made the jump. This adventure has helped open my mind and challenge me in ways I never imagined before. It has also given me a way to experience the beauty of a new country with fresh eyes.
By sharing my experiences I hope that you are inspired for your next trip or move abroad. Enjoy reading!
