The Team

Rachel Ooi

Rachel in Kimono, Japan

Japan, as one of her very first trip far away from home, Rachel found it to be eye-opening and awe-inspiring. She got so fascinated by the distinction of Japan, especially the people and how such country so unique from the rest can exist in this chaotic world, that she went back again (twice!) to Japan to further her endless discovery of it. Being an independent wanderer herself, Rachel knows what it takes to make a good, fun-filled yet responsible independent traveling.


Mathias

Mathias ringing the bell, Japan

Mathias had traveled all over Asia in his one-year backpacking stint. There was no place like Japan to flip all his pre-notions of Asia around. He was deeply impressed by the order of Japan, being a German who loves one, and also admires their prominent culture and traditions in this modern day. He is the man for all the technicalities of traveling in Japan, transports and the nitty gritty of itinerary planning, while his travel companion does all the daydreaming and wishing of where to go next and what to do.
