“We are torn between nostalgia for the familiar and an urge for the foreign and strange. As often as not, we are homesick most for the places we have never known.”

I believe in taking the scenic route. I believe in solo travel. I believe in knowing where we came from. I believe in prayer. I believe in the importance of healthy intake. I believe in drinking lots of water. I believe a run is a great way to start a good day and an even better way to end a bad one. I believe in hand written notes. I believe in more reading time and less screen time. I believe in going without a plan. I believe in getting to know the locals. I believe in grace through faith. I believe in packing light and going far. I believe in going. I believe in wandering. I believe in wondering.

My name is Lucy. I am a twenty-something born and raised in Texas who wants to see the world. I love the life that comes from traveling. I don’t have any specific stipulations for where I’ll go. I want to see it all. From the smallest, one horse town to the largest metropolis. Distantly Present is where I share the story, the adventure, the life. All in hopes that just one person will be inspired to go for themselves.
