Renee Stokes


Hello! I’m Renee and I’m from Perth, Australia. When I was 20 years old I travelled abroad for the first time… It was scary, but exciting! Now I’m 44 and I’ve lived in 6 countries and travelled to many more. I think learning a language is an awesome thing to do, and will give you the power to experience so many interesting things.
My number one hobby now is learning Japanese. I’ve lived in Nagoya for 2 years and I love it here! I also like reading, hiking, cooking (and eating!), and art. Oh, and watching dramas on Netflix. I’m looking forward to becoming your diary writing partner!
