About

Hello there, I’m Leigh, an American writer based in Accra, Ghana, and you’ve stumbled into my personal corner of the Internet. Welcome to the party. Put down your purse, grab a drink, and stay awhile!

This blog has been many things over the years: a travel blog, a literary blog, a hodgepodge of random musings…Right now its focus is on trying new things in my new home of Accra. 

I’ll be posting all about my mini-adventures in West Africa in hopes that they entertain, but also in hopes that they inspire you to try something new, too. Something brave, something daring, something a little crazy, something you don’t think you can quite picture yourself doing.

I think it’s important to shake things up in life. To keep people — including yourself — guessing about you. So, let’s surprise ourselves a little, shall we? :)

— Leigh
