About this blog

Welcome to my blog ‘Wanderingbee’!

I’m Akane, a nomadic freelance illustrator and graphic designer originally from Japan. I document and share my travel stories, knowledge and tips of living abroad with a bunch of pictures and videos I took along the way.

Mostly I write about the topics listed below:

  • 海外ノマド、海外長期生活情報
  • 旅の豆知識、体験談
  • 世界各国の文化紹介
  • ワーキングホリデー、海外就労情報
  • 海外専門・語学留学、語学学習(英語・スペイン語)について
  • デザイナー+元バリスタ目線のコラム、お役立ちネタ
  • Travel information as a nomad and general tips of living overseas for a long-term
  • Travel destinations, tips and personal experiences
  • World’s diverse cultures
  • Working abroad and Working Holiday tips
  • Study abroad and languages (English and Spanish)
  • Small talks from my designer’s, and ex-barista’s eyes


You can find my real-time nomadic stories on Twitter(@hive_aka_en), Instagram(@beeawanderluster)and hobby travel videos on YouTube. Feel free to check out and follow me!



By the way, the blog title ‘Wanderingbee’ literally means ‘a bee wandering around’

Bee a wanderluster.
