Living in Sapporo for about 20 years - English teaching, editing, guide book rewriting, doing video commentaries...
In my non-working time I hunt out the powder snow, the hiking trails, the hot springs, the best local food and beer!
Originally from London, England I come from a family of guide book hoarders and I've always loved reading/hearing about places I may get to some day.
I write for Fodor's Guidebooks, Trip Advisor...and I'm on Couch Surfer too....so helping people come here and enjoy is a kind of nice addiction.
