About Me!

Hi, my name is Melissa, I’m 24 years old and I’m single and ready to mingle. Oh wait; this isn’t my tinder profile, is it?

However it’s a good starting point. I’m a travel blogger, but I’m doing it all alone, without the cute picture taking “Instagram” boyfriend. I also don’t have mermaid hair or the ability to always look flawless in every picture I take. So, you now might be thinking, as a travel blogger showing of their lives on Instagram, I don’t have a lot going for me. Well it’s a good thing you’re currently reading my blog and not my Instagram then hey, because if there is one thing I do have going for me, it’s that I’m kind of witty and can write a semi-decent blog post. At least according to my grandmother, who has to say nice things about me because of the laws of familiar relationships.

I am committed to writing realistic blog posts about my true feelings of living the travel blogger lifestyle. Just a word of warning, it’s not all sunsets, beaches and strange flavours of ice cream. Adventure is hard work with a million rewards buried underneath a thousand tonnes of bird poop. However, with a high powered hose of realism and a few hours of work, shifting that bird poo is a lot easier than you can imagine.

Currently I live in Japan full time, employed as the most famous foreign female in my town (read: one of the only female white girls in a small Japanese city). I’m currently using my experiences from this to influence my writing. So if you don’t like sushi…well high five because I don’t really like sushi either.

I you’re looking for a something relatable to read with a whole dose of wacked out humour, welcome to my blog! I hope you like it here. Sorry it’s a bit devoid of blog posts, I believe in writing hard hitting posts, not useless drivel (which this whole about me section has turned into) so I don’t post too regularly. And because this now sounds like the words of a politician making empty promises, VOTE ONE the Fanciful Fungirl for the best travel blog in the world!
