About Me

Everyone has that one experience that left them spellbound – looking at the Grand Canyon, walking across the Hoover Dam, seeing a Giant Moose in the wild, looking at the night sky from the middle of the Sahara Desert, etc. the list goes on. For Morgan Francis, i.e. yours truly, it was all of those things and more. I have been an explorer ever since I was old enough to walk, making my way through the world one place at a time.

“Happiness is only real, when shared” Christopher McCandless scribbled into his notes months into his solitary living in Alaska, weeks before his death. He was right!

For the longest time, I considered myself a lone wolf. I prided myself on being independent and scrapping together enough money to backpack through a different part of the world every year. And while all of those travels and tribulations were amazing, they brought me to the same inevitable conclusion as Christopher.

That is why to share all of my knowledge, experiences, and my journey through this mysterious world, I created Crest of the Stars!

This is a place where, in between my travels, I create content that caters to the curious (occasionally with alliterations). I write about travelling tips, insights into the scientific field, and advice for aspiring travelers and science enthusiasts.
