Hello and welcome to Steven On The Move.

My name is Steven Ericson.  I used to be a geography professor at an American university, but am now a full-time travel blogger/writer based on Tokyo, Japan.  I enjoy drinking beer at craft breweries, dining at unique local eateries, attending sporting events, and doing my best to immerse myself in local culture.

Travel can be a liberating and uplifting experience as long as people are willing to extend themselves beyond their comfort zones.  These experiences do not have to be halfway around the world.  People can have these experiences in their own town.  It is the goal of this blog to show people that whether you fly around the world or just visit a new neighborhood in your hometown that you can have a life-shaping experience.
