Indulge in the adventures awaiting you.
Through travel, we choose to embrace the unknown, to be comfy in the “uncomfy.”
Through travel, we see the world around us beyond headlines and Insta feeds. We’re forced to see who we are without the comfort of familiarity. We begin to humanize other cultures and understand their values.
Through travel, we discover the baggage that followed us on our travels whether it’s the loneliness or pain we thought could’ve been left behind.
Through travel, we gain perspective on our perceived problems and direction in life. We’re introduced to another scenery and eatery but on a larger scale, a different way of life.
My name is Kristin, and travel has captivated my heart and soul. Born and raised in the Midwest, I still had a curiosity for the world that I hadn’t seen yet. In high school, I took a trip through Europe including London, Paris, Rome and Florence. Sitting on my pullout couch in a hotel outside Paris, I called my parents over a janky Wifi connection via Viber. As I sipped on my limonade, I gushed to my family of my pure exhilaration. In that moment, I knew I’d come back; I simply couldn’t not return. And despite the worst night of my life, which occurred on this trip, I stayed true to this promise.
And three years later I spent a summer working in Toulouse, France. In the process, I learned more about myself and the world than I could’ve dreamed.
If I can’t be abroad, flipping through old travel scrapbooks while listening to Ghost Stories by Coldplay or the Monte Carlo soundtrack and sipping on a caramel latte will just have to do.
