HI! I'M KALYN!

Disney-Obsessed, Travel-Lover, Ice Cream Junkie

Welcome to my little corner of the world. Currently I'm an Orlando girl living in a London world, sharing my life as an American expat in the UK and my love for all things travel and Disney World. I'm a big believer in creating the life you want for yourself, eating pizza no matter the occasion, and using travel to boost your confidence. Get in touch to ask me anything you want about travel, expat life, Mickey Mouse, or the one time I got stranded in Bermuda.
