Hello there!

Welcome to Letters From Tina. My name is Kristina (or Tina for short) and I am a full time graphic designer and part time globe trotter based in Seattle, Washington. I started this blog as a way for me to document and share my travels with friends, family, and anyone who has a passion for exploring.

Before 2013 my idea of traveling included spending all my time by the pool and sleeping in until noon. Don’t get me wrong, I still love vacations with days like that but it wasn’t until my first trip to Japan that I realized what I was missing out on. Something about being in a new place, not being able to speak the same language, and experiencing a different culture opened my eyes up to what traveling was supposed to be about. By sharing my experiences, along with tips and tricks that I've picked up along the years, I hope to inspire others to travel well and travel often.

Thanks for stopping by and stay tuned for more!
