Hi I’m Taka!

I’m an accountant living in the greater NYC area. Don’t get bored yet, I have some stories to tell! I’ve traveled to 21 countries, hiked volcanoes, and ridden category 5 rapids in faraway lands. I’ve learned a few things along the way and ignited more questions than answers.

I am not one of those travelers who decided to drop everything and take off for years without end, but I am the person who dropped everything to travel. I spent 5 months in 2016-2017 in South America exploring the culture, food, and beauty of places different than the one I call home. I returned home with empty pockets but a full heart and lots of lessons to pass on.

I’m here to share some of those lessons and a few other thoughts, so kick back, grab a drink, and let’s explore this wild and crazy world together!

So…what’s this all about?


Where have I been? What have I seen? What are you waiting for? These posts about my travels that may inspire you!


Wondering how you can make that elusive world hopping trip happen? Here’s how.


Traveling builds up big questions that creep to top of mind. Join the conversation and let’s learn something together.
