Winter’s in full swing, but I’ll be under the sun in Phoenix, Arizona… followed by Tokyo!

Phoenix’s tourism board is flying me in and hosting me on a December press trip. I’ll be making videos and blogs, about ghost towns and alternative culture (yes, it does exist here!) Excited to visit for the first time.

Do you have travel suggestions for me? Must-visit destinations? Let me know in the comments or on my Facebook.

Additionally, the Pirates will be in Tokyo, Japan in early 2013, to work on a big TV show. More details soon, and keep your eyes on this blog for casting notices (you can possibly join our filming).

Since you enjoyed my Hello Kitty store photos, here’s more fashion from Hong Kong. Causeway Bay is one of my favorite shopping districts, specializing in Japanese style.

      Hi! It’s only for people in Tokyo, this time… and I don’t know exactly when it will take place, or if we need people at all… so it would be hard to plan :(

    AZ tip: It’s a desert, but gets cold at night during the winter. And be cautious of scorpions and snakes.

    How long will you be in AZ? You mentioned ghost hunting definitely check out Vulture Mine! I’ve been there twice now and it’s been featured on a ton of ghost hunting shows and other press. Also, wile your here you should check out some of the few goth clubs here! I would be happy to show you around. Oh also there is a really epic haunted hotel in Bisbee but it is on the Mexican border.
