Hi! I’m Kristen. The name of this blog stems from this quote:
“Once you have tasted flight, you will forever walk the earth with your eyes turned skyward, for there you have been, and there you will always long to return.”
–Leonardo da Vinci
My first taste of flight came on a high school Latin trip to Italy. Stepping into the winding, cobbled streets of Rome that summer of 2008, I experienced a kind of rush I have since felt countless times: the feeling of arriving in a new place is bewitching. And addicting.
I recently moved from Philadelphia to Colorado, and I’m so ready to get out and explore the wild wild west. I like to remind myself how swell life can be — I hope you agree & stick around to check out some of my adventures!
