Hello there, I’m Irene! I initially started this blog to share my travel photos with friends and family. (Hence the name “196seven”–196 countries across 7 continents). But I have a terrible memory, so it’s also become sort of a hodgepodge of all things I like so that I can remember them when I’m old and grey. In addition to sharing with you my adventures, I plan on sharing with you things I like to eat, make, do, listen to, read, and think about.
I recently graduated from UC Berkeley and currently live in San Francisco where I hang out with Karl the Fog, my favorite bums, and the hipsters in the Mission. I love to eat Japanese ramen, spend lazy Sundays playing Hearthstone, and plan my next adventure…
