Gender MALE
Introduction A six-pack (definitely not beer) teetotaler and a nonsmoker purist, searching far to find his roots

True, I still have many unattained dreams, but look at how many I have already realized and showcased in here.

I came up with the idea of naming myself (an unforeseen term of) "Hotel Trotter" (in English) / "旅店浪人" (in Chinese) / "ホテル浪人" (in Japanese, rōnin in Japanese kanji). This ID name perfectly fits right into my career arc of combining lifestyle with world travel.

I had been frequently traveled (in a high-flown fashion, no doubt) and often away for long stretches while I was building my own freelance writing and photography career around the globe, since 1988. Flying off to and touching down in 3 countries for three individual works within a 24-hour time is my unbreakable record up to the moment. Now I am staying inactive to regain and to get a little extra rest as best as I possibly can.

And then, began my personal blogging in recent years about world experience under my belt.
