Howdy and welcome to frangipani 2.0! It looks kinda familiar doesn’t it. I didn’t want to lose the colour scheme.
The site is – at this point – still full of bugs, which is to be expected with the import of such a massive database from one system to another…. I’m working on it, but in the meantime, let me know if you find anything askew.
This blog began in November 2002, just prior to my departure to Japan at the url frangipani.info. It became my lifeline to sanity as I wrote about living in the surreal surrounds of a non-English speaking, highly structured and utterly hilarious Asian country. It opened up a world of opportunities for me, and helped me meet most of my great friends in Tokyo.
I left Japan in 2009 for a small beachside town in tropical north Queensland, Australia, and took a break from blogging. But writing is in my blood and I love sharing my life and photographs with friends now scattered around the world. Keeps me feeling plugged in.
