WRITER | TRAVELLER | AVID JOURNAL KEEPER
Journey with me through Japan in this visual and textual not-quite-journal of my 28-day trip through this enchanting, enigmatic and ultra-efficient country.
My first (self) published book, 28 Japan shares my personal travel tips, hopefully useful insights, moments of inspiration and the occasional frustration alongside many, many photographs I captured along the way. Use this book as a guide to help you plan a future trip to Japan, or indulge in a little wanderlust as I reminisce this memorably epic vacation through a country that charms me every single time.

My Instagram posts feature mostly travel and journal-related content, with a smattering of everyday life in Stories. Thanks to being home-bound during the pandemic though, my content has largely been focused on my journals. You have been warned.
Since I was taking videos for IGTV, I thought I'd make them do double duty and upload them to YouTube as well.
My videos are mostly flipthroughs of my travel journals and before-the-pen monthly inserts, "silent fountain pen" and ink reviews, and other stationery and journaling-related content. I have a growing list of videos I want to do, I just need to find the time to get around to it.
In the mean time, I am still far away from the eventual goal of monetising my channel, so do give me a follow!
I'm Nadiah. I'm a 40-something year old writer, editor, avid journal keeper, reader, foodie, on-hold-traveller, maker, sometimes photographer, music lover, neat freak; sometimes all at the same time, sometimes more or less one or the other, and sometimes something else altogether.
I am a one-person show most of the time, but I also enjoy being part of a team. And while I am quite set in my ways, I am also versatile and look forward to new challenges and discoveries.
I don't have a personal favourite quote, but Green Day's "Good Riddance (Time of Your Life" is the closest thing to a personal mantra. I can't wait to travel again, to Japan in particular. In the mean time, I'm using this homebound time to catch up on significantly overdue travel journals.
