“Dreamy enough to space out to.”
Favorite City: New York City
“You can never get bored there. Nowhere feels more alive.”
“The best restaurant I’ve ever been to I don’t even know the name of. It’s in Yokohama, and I always go with my uncle and aunt when I’m in Japan. Most amazing sushi. It only seats about five people and the entire place makes you feel like you’ve traveled back in time a few centuries.”
Favorite Holiday Memory:
