Hello friends, family, and strangers! My name is Kaila, and I am traveling the world! My partner Alex and I have been on the road for five and a half months now with no end in sight. We both grew up in the Bay Area of California, and in October of last year (2018), we hopped on a plane to Brazil and spent a little over 3 months there. Since then, we've been to Argentina (briefly), Costa Rica, Portugal, Spain, and now Morocco. We have several more months of travel planned, through France, Greece, Italy, the Balkans, Thailand, and hopefully Nepal, and a wide open door after that! We hope to keep going for upwards of a year before heading back to the States.
I bet you're wondering "How on Earth could they afford that?". I can assure that we're no millionaires or trust-fund babies. Between some hard work, careful planning, and a bit of luck, we managed to save enough to get started, and we've been working part-time while traveling. Alex and I both work for a company called VIPKid, which is based in China and hires native English speakers to teach English to kids in China. So far it's been enough to support our travels, and we're both looking for ways to branch out and diversify our income sources. There are lots of other companies that do similar work, and feel free to reach out to me if you're interested in learning more about it!
In this blog, I hope to share some of my experiences, favorite photos, and life lessons. I hope you will follow me on my adventures!
All the best,
