First things first, introductions!

Pictured above: Secluded in the hills of eastern Kamakura, an hour south of Tokyo, this beautiful, small bamboo grove found behind the Hōkokuji Temple’s main hall consists of over 2000 dark green Moso bamboo (the biggest species of bamboo) stalks. It rained and poured for a good 2 hours and I literally had the grove to myself ~ showers of blessings 😊

Sun Voyager ~ Reykjavik, Iceland. Sun Voyager is described as a dreamboat, or an ode to the sun. The artist intended it to convey the promise of undiscovered territory, a dream of hope, progress and freedom.

Greetings! I haven’t written a blog post since the days of MSN Spaces and Myspace, well over a decade, sigh. Here we are, new year, new decade and I figured I’d get back into the swing of blogging, sharing more of my life and travels beyond my Instagram page. So, who am I?! I’m Alecia (pronounced with 4 syllables, uh-LEE-see-uh) and I’m a wanderer, not a wonderer who loves Jesus, uplifting people, my alma mater – The University of Michigan (Go Blue), music, travel and food which you’ll see incorporated throughout my posts.

“To move, to breathe, to fly, to float, to gain all while you give, to roam the roads of lands remote: To travel is to live.”

Hans Christian Anderson
Otsego Lake ~ Cooperstown, NY… Being born under the scorpio zodiac water sign I’m a proud water baby and no matter where I go, I’m guaranteed to be in or on the water in some capacity – swimming, sailing or kayaking.

Travel offers great enlightenment and engagement, I hope you enjoy my posts as I strive to broaden horizons and inspire wander.

Asakusa Shrine ~ Tokyo, Japan. Though I’m a Christian I wanted to visit a shrine while in Japan and be respectful in doing so.

Please subscribe and leave a comment, your feedback on anything of mine is welcomed and much appreciated.

Live, love, learn, inspire and travel!

Til next time, walk good (Jamaican expression for take care/stay safe).
