Hey, I'm Dan Woods and I love travel, new experiences, and that first sip of coffee in the morning that comes close to convincing you all is right with the world. I'm regularly seduced by the travel bug, and become fixated with journeying to the ends of the earth, stumbling around a place I've never been, and taking the first steps in whichever language I've tried (and failed) to learn in two weeks.

When I find the time, I write here about the shiny, sparkly things that catch my eye. You might enjoy reading about Leschenaultia, trees and rocket-ships, or mobile love.

My favourite type of sushi is Engawa, my favourite sake style Nigori, and my favourite onigiri is that weird one in the corner that I’m not even really sure about. I revel in new tastes and will eat anything once, and have been known to go out of my way to do so.
