Because you can't go to Santorini🇬🇷 and not take THE sunset photo in Oia 🤷🏾‍♀️🌅 We put off visiting Oia until the last day of our trip. Reading about the madness that goes down at Oia Castle  for the sunset shots really dissuaded me. Despite this, we knew that we couldn't NOT go to Oia after spending a few days in Santorini. So we sucked it up and went. We made sure to get to the castle early to secure our spot - with alcohol in tow of course. And this photo (and about 100 others) were the result. 😍

A beautiful dress, magnificent architecture, and no shoes needed? Yes please! A day well spent at the Boston Public Library was a dream; there was loads of books, art and students. The old part of the library is my favorite as you get to see how grand it really is. There was a few painting that left me puzzled and super awkward walking around trying not to make a sound while students actually studied. But I love my time there over all and getting to explore it in this cute dress I've found at @buffaloexchange made it better.

At first, the city of Athens turned me off. Gross men (not Greek, not sure where they were from) lingering in the streets calling out “sex?” every time I walked by, super crowded and dirty streets, fur shops at almost every corner...
•
BUT, then I met a friend of a friend who showed me a more beautiful side of the city. For one, there are cats EVERYWHERE! Y’all know I’m a crazy cat lady, lol. There are some really cute, narrow cobblestone streets that have that classic European feel that I love. The views overlooking the city from Acropolis are stunning. Lots of cool grafiti artwork can be found if you wander down some of the tiny alleyways. And the history is soooo old and rich!
•
It really helps to experience some places with someone who knows them well. If I hadn’t had such a wonderful host, built-in tour guide, and now, friend, I would’ve left Athens with a bit of a sour taste in my mouth. Thank you Kosta and Nabil for introducing us!

Is this a lake or the ocean? Guess!💦 #tbt

*hint* it’s in California 😜

...I’ll add the geotag and answer at the end of the day! 😎

*UPDATE* 9:16pm - y’all are good! It’s Lake Tahoe! Such a magical place and one of my absolute favorite bodies of water to play in! 💙

Curious to see what Israel looks like? 
Well this is just me, after a grueling hike, posted up in front of a really old wall that is part of Masada Fortress. Buuut if you go check out my “Exploring Israel” video on my CruisingWithKaya YouTube channel, you can see the actual landscapes, cities and people of Israel! Link in bio! 🇮🇱

HAVE YOU SEEN OUR NEW VLOG? link in bio💛
HAVE YOU SEEN OUR NEW VLOG? link in bio💛
If you started following me summer 2017 or after, then you probably don’t know that I used to work as a nanny for a French family. It’s actually a big part of my answer to the number 1 question I get asked - “How have you been able to travel for so long?!”
•
When I fell in love with travel, I had no idea there were ways I could get paid to do it!
I’m currently trying to find my footing with that approach...but having been a nanny ever since graduating college, I’ve always gone the childcare route in the past. Knowing I wanted to travel with no time limit this time, I stepped my nanny game up. I worked for a year and a half with the Frenchies and another family, and even lived-in with the latter. That is how I was able to save up the money I’ve been using to travel since last summer.
•
With that being said, I was also able to travel quite a bit within that working period. One of the coolest parts about working for my beloved French fam, was being invited to travel to France with them for a few weeks!
•
But the point of all of this is to say that there are SO many ways to make a life of travel possible, so get creative and don’t limit yourself! #Nannylife has been such a blessing that has supported my wanderess lifestyle for the last 8 years. It’s the way I chose to make my travel dreams come true. How will you make yours become a reality?

Paris is quite expensive, but there are plenty of ways to eat, have fun and take in all of the famous landmarks when you’re on a budget. This was my third time in Paris and @ebrown2427’s first and we managed to have a great time there together while honoring each others spending allowances.
•
We mostly cooked for ourselves, making sandwiches on croissants and baguettes. But we also indulged on the “musts” like crepes, gelato, wine and...escargot...🤭 (lol it tastes good but I can’t handle the texture and the thought that it’s a snail!)
•
We did a LOT of walking (great exercise) and saw all of the famous landmarks without paying a dime. For example...I had already gone inside of the Louvre during my first visit to Paris, and Elisa was indifferent about it, so we just went to see the outside of it which is gorgeous! We also chose to sit on the lawn and take in the magnificence of the Eiffel Tower rather than pay and wait in that horrendous line to climb to the top of it.
•
And by far, the most fun I had this time around in Paris was drinking and hanging out with locals at night along the Seine River. We learned how to vogue and made some fabulous new friends...and it was all free except for the bottle of wine! 😉

Coming back to America has been hard on my stomach and my waistline. I don’t know why this country has a war on food... but it’s so hard to find REAL food... food that was cooked in someone’s kitchen besides your own.... food that was never in some kind of box, bag or freezer!!! I want to eat real food, not pay a zillion dollars per meal... and not blow up!!!!
.
America, is this too much to ask?
.
Meanwhile I’m going back to China in 2 weeks, and I’m so excited about having freshly cooked vegetables to eat everyday for the low price of $2.99/meal!!!!

After living right outside of ATL for 23 years I couldn’t wait to move away. Now that I’ve lived in Virginia for the past 3 years I’ve grown to appreciate ATL more every time I come home to visit. I def took living in this awesome city for granted. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Do you still live in your hometown? If not, do you miss living there?

Rainy days usually call for Netflix and chillin, but when you’re in a new city, you can’t afford to spend the whole day in bed! I usually opt for free galleries/museums and cute cafes on those days when I try to stay dry. Umbrellas work perfectly well if your heart is still set on wandering. Some cities are just as beautiful, rain or shine!

I've always had a love for history and when Christina told me she lived near Harvard I was super excited to go. A private Ivy League school Founded in 1639 it's one of the world's most prestigious universities.
Walking around the campus was beautiful with all the Architectural structures and a lot of brick; never seen so much brick in one place. 
So after having a little moment of Mama I've made it! 🤣 Walking pass all the tourist taking selfies, ducking from a football which me and Christina both saw our life flash before our eyes. We stroll out into the streets of Cambridge on the hunt for food as it was dinner time.

The best part of travel - meeting and befriending fun, beautiful, inspirational, like-minded women. ❤️
The worst part of travel - having to eventually part ways with them. 💔
...so it goes 💫

So glad our paths crossed here in Guatemala, @sumistouch. Safe travels and I’ll see you when you see me. So happy to have another travel sister to meet up with somewhere in this amazing world!

Safe travels and I’ll see you when you see me. So happy to have another travel sister to meet up with somewhere in this amazing world! • • • #seeyouwhenyouseeme  #travelfriends  #learningspanish  #salsanight  #Xela  #Quetzaltenango  #Guatemala  #CentralAmerica  #travel  #photography  #backpacking  #solotravel  #expat  #expatlife  #journey  #adventure  #explore  #igtravel  #instatravel  #travelgram  #traveler  #wanderlust  #travelbug  #budgettravel  #worldtravel  #nomad  #freespirit  #wanderess  #cruisingwithkaya  #tbtcollective 
Sometimes you just have one of those days where you want to stick your head in the sand... or pull your hat down over your eyes and hide from the world.... you know? .

I challenge all of you to think twice about how you celebrate Cinco de Mayo this weekend. Not trying to be a party pooper, just want to bring awareness to the fact that a lot of the ways y’all celebrate are culturally insensitive and quite IGNANT.  Still, there are respectful ways to have fun! Check my story for alternative ways to celebrate. Have a lit weekend 🇲🇽

If you’re ever in ATL, be sure to stop by Ponce City Market! It’s the perfect place to experience the flavors of Atlanta while also getting in your shopping fix. I ate at 3 restaurants yesterday bc everything was so yummy 😭😭😭⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Also, some people don’t know, but there’s a perfect date spot on the roof called Skyline Park. You can find panoramic views of ATL, enjoy a refreshing drink from the bar, and even play a round of putt putt golf.

I’m not gonna lie, I didn’t learn a thing about Roman history while I was there...I just took nice pics lol. 🤷🏽‍♀️
.
.
.
But I definitely believe in traveling with the mindset that I’ll come back to a city again, especially a place like Rome. There’s always more to see and do! I prefer to travel with a loose itinerary, get lost in the streets and just get a feel for the spot the first time around. .
.
.
Anyone else a slow traveler like me, or do you prefer a packed itinerary?

I was out here with a tripod because I’m a strong, independent woman and I can do bad all by myself....right? Until I ran into another solo woman traveler who asked me to take a photo of her.
.
.
.
We quickly joined forces, and lemme tell y’all, there’s strength in numbers! Lol. We recruited each other to be our personal photographers for the rest of the day and even met up a couple days later in Verona! That tripod simply wouldn’t have gotten my angles right, you know? & it’s nice to have someone to share the experience with!
.
.
Anyway I love solo travel because I meet so many different people from all around the world with whom I can easily connect with through our mutual obsession for travel! .

Cheers to new friends who capture your good side 📷 @e.dyuryagina.

Don’t chase people. Work hard and be yourself. The people that belong in your life will come find you and stay. Just be you.

When you’re the only one at the party who doesn’t speak (fluent) Spanish 😥 lol
Btw...am I the only one who feels like alcohol DOESN’T help me magically speak my second language better?! 😅🙈
•
Two and a half weeks in to Spanish classes and my brain is feeling the burn y’all! But it’s so good and I’m feeling the progress little by little. 💪🏾
•
Growing up with Latino friends my whole life made me always wish I was bilingual. And now I wish that even more, especially as a traveler, because I meet so many people from all over the world who speak different languages. 
Like this one time in Greece...I sat down to dinner with Israelis, Germans, Egyptians and Taiwanese friends, all of whom spoke English, but would sometimes have their moments of breaking off into private conversations in their own languages. I mean, it was literally impossible for me to not get jealous when everyone but me had a secret way of communicating! 😫
•
I’d love to learn at least 4 languages in this lifetime, but we’ll start with just Spanish for now. 
What language(s) are you fluent in? 
What language(s) do you wish you could speak?

All for the love of 🥘! So another story for the wanderers. It was late in Kuala Lumpur and our stomachs were grumbling. We were trying to make it to the food trucks in Bintang but fell short and got lost onto another street filled with food. We saw the lights, the people, and our stomachs saw the restaurants, food booths, and more. We deemed this where we needed to be. 
On our way we stopped at a random food booth and tried what they had in store. This included cheeses, various meat/fish, and sauce to meet whatever flavor you desired. 
Stopped at another booth with varieties of fried food. They fried pineapple , chicken, banana, chicken skin, and the list went on. (Picture not included, because I was trying to strike a deal)We indulged, and continued our festivities. THAI restaurants, one after the other. We began to talk to a group that was eating outdoors asking their thoughts on the food. We believed the raving and took a seat. This was our actual dinner, and it was great. Seafood and vegetable spicy stew is what i would compare it with rice, stir fried rice, and kailan. 
After leaving there, we continued to walk down the street. More restaurants, booths, and people. My cost for total feasting $10.

I’ve been taking anti-wanderlust pills for the past few weeks. Half of me wants to book that flight and BE OUT...
.
But the other half is happy to be landlocked... instead of running to the far corners of the earth... I’m enjoying spending my time with the people that I love who make this earth a better place!
.
So until I they get sick of me... I’ll be here in this (not so) great U.S. of A.... and the gram can just deal with this throwback pics...😂

@thequeenofvacations Recently I was told at a bar by a certain gentleman that I’m “not his type” because I’m “too much”....
.
Too much of what????
.
“You’re just too much” he continued “you can have whatever you want, it’s just too much for me”
.
This conversation right here, had me like 🤨
.
I spent a lot of time cultivating my life... making sure that my existence on the planet is a meaningful one. My momma and daddy just so happened to have good genes.... but now that’s too much.
.
If I had “too little” and let my life just meander into misery.... there would be someone somewhere telling me “you should smile babygirl”
.
I can’t even continue with this convo in my head but feel free to leave your thoughts below...

In the meantime, imma keep doing me! .

This monkey was up there chillin with his boo then all of sudden he snagged the glasses off this poor man’s face. Now, they told us to watch out for those thieving monkeys but no lie this monkey had the quickest hands. Thennnnn, dude tried to get his glasses back and the monkey showed his teeth and buddy had second thoughts. What came next had me rollin. The monkey started eating the glasses and then pissed on them. ( My fiancé was doing commentary the whole like “oh now the monkey is marking its territory” 😂😂 ) Finally a guard came over and traded a fruit for the glasses.

Ohh, the sadness that hit us when we discovered the #BlueMosque was closed for renovation! 😩 I've never been the type to check availability and to be honest, this experience hasn't changed that a bit. 🤷🏾‍♀️ Turkey, I will return. 💕

These days I live for an amazing view (domestic or international), great conversation, and genuine people. I guess appreciating the simple things comes with maturity. So glad my sis came to visit me from Charlotte.

When I’m here, I feel clear. I feel grounded, even when I’m so happy that I feel like I’m floating. This land and the people in it fill me with so much love. I’m extremely happy and grateful to be back here; to be home. 🙏🏾

Guatemala; me encantas! ♥️ • When I’m here, I feel clear. I feel grounded, even when I’m so happy that I feel like I’m floating. This land and the people in it fill me with so much love. I’m extremely happy and grateful to be back here; to be home. 🙏🏾 • • • #gratitude  #home  #Xela  #Quetzaltenango  #Guatemala  #CentralAmerica  #travel  #photography  #iphone7plus  #focus  #backpacking  #solotravel  #journey  #adventure  #explore  #igtravel  #instatravel  #travelgram  #traveler  #wanderlust  #travelbug  #budgettravel  #worldtravel  #gypsy  #nomad  #freespirit  #wanderess  #cruisingwithkaya  #tbtcollective

- // Everything is more beautiful in Italy.
Recently I was told at a bar by a certain gentleman that I’m “not his type” because I’m “too much”....
.
Too much of what????
.
“You’re just too much” he continued “you can have whatever you want, it’s just too much for me”
.
This conversation right here, had me like 🤨
.
I spent a lot of time cultivating my life... making sure that my existence on the planet is a meaningful one. My momma and daddy just so happened to have good genes.... but now that’s too much.
.
If I had “too little” and let my life just meander into misery.... there would be someone somewhere telling me “you should smile babygirl”
.
I can’t even continue with this convo in my head but feel free to leave your thoughts below...
.
In the meantime, imma keep doing me! .

Got any travel regrets? 🙋🏾‍♀️
•
Feel free to lay it all out there in the comments and join me in solidarity as I confess one of mine....acknowledgement is the first step! 😅 #liveandlearn, amirite? So let’s learn from each others mistakes or regrets!
•
Welp. Today’s #tbt is a moment I still feel pretty guilty about. I’m not sure if it’s really as bad as I believe it to be; I’m just such an animal lover, that it bothers me whenever I see this photo because I‘m so against supporting the animal tourism industry.🙅🏾‍♀️
•
There are plenty of organizations in different countries that you can visit and support as a traveler which benefit the animals...I don’t think that exploiting exotic creatures in city streets benefits anyone except the “owners”.🙄
•
I’d said no the first 5 times I encountered the man with this beautiful python in Prague, but then I finally caved and paid a dollar (less than he was asking for) to take a picture with her. I love snakes and honestly just wanted the chance to hold her and give her a bit of love 💛🐍 but that doesn’t make it right. In the end, I feel I was simply one of many who only encouraged the man to keep passing her off to tourists to fill his pockets.🤦🏾‍♀️
•
Anyways, please drop some knowledge on me if you know anything about snakes and how this may or may not be a stressful lifestyle for them. I tried to google it and found nothing to give me clarity, so I’ll just continue to assume it’s no good. But please educate me if you have any info; be the voice for the voiceless!🙏🏾
•
...and again, feel free to share any travel regrets, no matter how big or small. Together we can create more conscious travelers!✨

Cinque Terre is Italian for “five lands” and is made of up of five fishing villages along the Italian Riviera. .
.
.
I’d recommend being based in La Spezia and spending two days to get the slow & steady experience, hiking from each town to the next on the trail named Via dell’Amore, or the “Love Path.” It can also be completed in one day with hour-long breaks in each city, but at a bit of a quicker pace. I didn’t have the right shoes for hiking so we got a one day train pass for 16€ that let us travel between towns easily via train. Each train ticket is 4€ without the one day pass. Later in the day, trains are packed and are always delayed because of so many tourists.

We started at 8am in the most northern village, Monterosso al Mare, then visited Vernazza, had an injera picnic in Corniglia, and continued on to Manarola (pictured here and maybeeee my favorite— it’s really so hard to say), before the grand finale of Riomaggiore. It really got better as we went on!! The weather was perfect, and the views even better. But I do highly suggest you see for yourself 😊 #cinqueterre .

Ya'll know me and my landscape shots 🤗 I couldn't go to Istanbul and not take a panoramic photograph of the beautiful blue domes and massive cityscape that is home to over 15 million people 💙
