Where it all began for me was on a school trip in year 7 when I was 12. My parents saved up to send me to Japan. Coming from a very Aussie background, Japan was an interesting first choice as I wouldn’t eat much of the food. After dining in a real sushi restaurant I was completely freaked out so my lovely host family gave me candy version of sushi!
It was an amazing experience and that is when I caught the travel bug.
