Welcome to the site!! I’m Phylicia. A southern girl who loves chocolate, warm weather, exploring new places and Whitney Houston!
Since I was a kid I’ve also had a love for the arts and as I’ve gotten older that love has developed into a passion for photography. As much as I enjoy photography I’ve struggled with calling myself a photographer and have shied away from sharing my work. I’ve been known to take hundreds (maybe even thousands) of photos at family gatherings and on trips. I organize the photos, edit them and then…they sit on my computer for all of eternity. There was always a feeling that no one really cared that much about my photos and the joy in taking the pics was enough. That I just needed to get my creative juices out. It was really my excuse for avoiding criticism. Erykah Badu said it best – “…I’m an artist and I’m sensitive about my [stuff].” She didn’t quite use the word “stuff” but you get the point. 🙂
A trip to Thailand changed all of that for me. After riding a bike through the crazed streets of Bangkok and exploring age-old caves in Phuket, I thought “I have to show this to everybody!”. During the trip I immediately started uploading photos to my Google drive and sharing them with family and friends. That’s when I realized that my love for photography could easily be merged with my love for travel! (Yep, an aha moment.)
This blog is a way for my photos and explorations around the world to have real meaning. A way for me to share my travel experiences with you. A way for my experiences to inspire you to escape to unseen places, discover the world and seize the moment!
