About this blog

Welcome to my blog ‘Wanderingbee’ 🙂

This blog is running by Akane: A freelance illustrator, graphic designer and barista wandering the world over 5 years.

In this blog, I’m sharing my extensive knowledge of travelling the world, cultural experiences that I gained through living abroad over long-term, and introducing nomadic lifestyle with my hobby drawing and a travel photos I took along the way.


Contents include: Tips on working abroad, studying English, nomading as a freelancer, how to make the most of working holiday visas, and recommendations of travel destination plus small talks from my designer’s and barista’s eyes.


The blog title ‘Wanderingbee’ comes from my another creative project called Hivebyaka‘.

Bee a wanderluster.

It represents myself!

In addition, the origin of the name ‘Hivebyaka’ is that it can divide into two words = ‘Hive’ and ‘by aka’ = me(Akane), Where my projects(Bee) is to be(Hive).
* ‘Aka’ means ‘red’ in Japanese and ‘Akane’ is also a name of a red colour in Japanese traditional colour scheme.
