About this blog

Welcome to my blog ‘Wanderingbee’ 🙂

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

In this blog, I’m sharing my extensive knowledge and experiences of traveling aka nomading the world, and introducing different culture that I learned through living abroad over long-term, with bunch of photos I took along the way. Contents including: useful information on working abroad, studying English and about working holiday visa, recommendations of travel destination, nomading tips as a freelancer, plus small talk from my designer’s and barista’s eyes.


The blog title ‘Wanderingbee’ stems 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.
