Hey! I’m Kalyn, the brains, hands, feet and all the internal organs behind Girl Gone London.
I’m the one trying desperately to keep up with the other component of the site, my husband Guy, who is not a girl but is in charge of the photography, videography, design and fact-checking me like there’s no tomorrow.
What is Girl Gone London about?
Despite the photo of me in the snow above, Girl Gone London is not solely about wintery landscapes, but instead covers three main topics:
- UK and Europe travel advice like how to stay safe in London and what to do with 2 days in Bergen.
- Walt Disney World tips and tricks, including things like my story about the time we got upgraded to Club Level at Animal Kingdom Lodge or why I think Disney for adults is more than acceptable.
- Stories about expat life in the UK as an American, like how to drive as a foreigner in the UK and the differences between British and American grocery stores.
What’s your story?
First and foremost, I’m an American citizen, yee haw, having lived in America full-time until I was 19.
I moved to London, United Kingdom in 2012 on a CAPA study abroad program, and ending up loving the UK so much that I found every way (and visa) I could to come back. While an undergrad, I also did the API London and AIFS London programs, studying at UCL and Richmond, The American International University. Since then, I have also done BUNAC‘s London Internship program and was direct enrolled at the University of Westminster for my postgraduate degree in Public Relations.
Why all of the Disney content?
I was born and raised in Orlando, Florida, so Disney is basically a part of my soul. I’ve been to the park hundreds and hundreds of times, and now that I split my time between the UK and Florida, I get to enjoy longer stays at the Disney resorts (my home-away-from-homes).
