Yeah, it’s another blog. One more stop on your stroll around the internets. But I hope you will stop by often.

This week in Portland, we’re wrapping up our August/September issue, and I’m getting ready to go to Japan, Tokyo specifically, for the World Barista Championships on Saturday. I’m very excited to visit Japan, and the fact that I’ll get to see many friends from around the world and some awesome barista skills on display has me totally stoked.

But it gets even better!

My father will be in tow, so the whole adventure will most likely be something like this.

I can’t wait!

We’ll do our best to keep you updated on the goings-on in the Land of the Rising Sun, so as they say, check back often.In the meantime, Howl’s Moving Castle is on on-demand, so I better do my cultural research.
