The Tomboy

Eating my way through Hawai’i (2013)

Thanks for checking out my blog!

I’m Quan. I’d say that I’m on the road at least every few weeks for work and and fun.  In the process, I get exposed to a lot of funny, weird and (occasionally) moving thoughts about travel that are bursting from my head.

I started this blog for a few reasons. One,because I wanted to replace the moleskin travel journals that I’ve been keeping for decades. Two, because like any art, I need to work on my writing skills.  And Three, because I might get the chance to meet really cool people in the process of this blog.

Unlike some other travel blogs, I don’t have the luxury of staying in one place for that long. I dream of the day that I can do that, but for now it’s all about in & out trips (especially while working)  or the limited time that I can get away from the office.
