This blog is for you if you feel like you're being initiated into something... you just don't know what yet. You've found yourself clicking on a ton of those bullet-point self-care tips and maybe some "ways to get ahead" articles lately but, in your heart of hearts, you know that the real answers come from keeping your heart open to adventure and your sense of humor intact. 


You’re looking for a kindred-spirit with an eye for magic, who can parse nuance and connect odd dots. You’re looking to be included in the deeper conversations - politics, spirituality, creativity, travel, health, history, culture - but you'd like the conversation to be a bit snarky.


My name is Katlyn Roberts and I’m a 29-year-old American writer living in Barcelona, Spain. I started this blog as an homage to the adventure books I read as a kid (Mark Twain’s Innocents Abroad, Robert Louis Stevenson’s Treasure Island, and the Harry Potter series, for example). Stories that got me itching to be lured into some kind of an initiation process that would lead to a higher version of myself and a better understanding of the world.


My life here in Spain isn’t perfect and neither am I, but moving here and starting this blog were leap-of-faith acts that swung my door wide open. If you’re looking for a sign to crack yours a bit wider yourself, I hope I can be of service.
