Over the years, my little blog resume has continued to grow! I’m by no means an expert, but it has been nice to share what I have learned about traveling (and general life lessons from that) on other platforms across the net and beyond.

Like, seriously, imagine trying to mind your business and unwind by listening to your favorite webseries and then BAM- here I go talking about giant rocks. Or, randomly browsing YouTube and my giant head comes photobombing in the back.

Below are a list of articles, podcasts, vlogs, interviews, and other platforms I had the immense honor to feature lil ol’ me! Check em out if you want more Kay content <3 Now, without further ado!
