If you're looking for an simple adventure, you should try flying a kite. Why not? It's cheap, there are cool designs and it makes you feel like a kid again. After a simple observation that it's windy outside, Chechi and I decided that flying a kite seemed like a good idea. We thrive on random and spontaneous adventures, so this isn't really out of the ordinary.
Below is a list of steps on how to fly a kite:
Step 1: Buy a kite. We're broke students who decided getting the cheapest and sturdiest kite was ideal. After a trip to Walmart and an argument on which design was the best, we got our shark kite for $15. Da-dum...Da-dum...Da-dum da-dum da-dum!
Step 2: Acquire canine companion (optional). You can probably skip this step, but bringing a dog makes the experience just a little bit more fun, especially if he's trying to chase you as you run. Bring your furry friend if you're looking for a challenge.
Step 3: Read instructions and assemble kite. We sorta skipped reading the instructions part. We just attempted to put the kite together and tried to fly it. It seemed pretty self-explanatory.
Step 4: Make mistakes. It turns out, it was much harder than expected. We would get the kite up for a few seconds before it crashed to the ground. Not cool.
Step 5: Fly the kite. After multiple attempts, we finally got it in the air long enough to take a few snapshots. Just wait for a big gust of wind and start running!
I hope you all are inspired to be a kid again. It's a pretty fun activity and isn't too time-consuming for those of you who are busy. Just get outside and fly a kite!
