hey there!

I’m nienie

안녕! I’m Stephanie, also known as NieNie, which is a nickname I’ve had since age 10. I am a single 30 something hapa (mixed-race of Asian descent) California Native.

My passion for travel started young. Born and raised in California with family all over the world, my family and I started to travel when I was a young baby. My first international trip was visiting family in South Korea at the age of 1 and I have visited every other year growing up.

Like my parents, I moved abroad and I am now embarking on my passion to travel and navigate this beautiful world. Follow me as I make mistakes, explore the world, and live abroad as a plus-size woman living in a Korean world.

A little about the blog


Adventures with NieNie is a fun light-hearted travel blog about my travel experiences. I’m an expert on travel in South Korea and the Philippines. I frequently share travel tips, must-see itineraries, mouth-watering food options, and inspiration for your next adventure.

My goal is to inspire, create and motivate you as you embark on your next great adventure.
