Hi, I’m Kay Kingsman!

writer | traveler | goofy goober

I’m just a girl who decided to have two of the most expensive hobbies: buying books and traveling. I started this blog to keep a digital memory of my adventures…and to procrastinate doing my laundry.

I’m not a full time traveler. I don’t even make money from traveling or blogging (in fact, I operate this site at a deficit lol), so it’s ALL PASSION here. So on that note:

Lower your standards, yeah?

But also expect authenticity. Expect honesty. Expect a nerdy young Black girl fumbling around the world, finding friendships, making mistakes, eating delicious food, and learning from the best storytellers of all time.

Each other.
