Who Is Kayti VS the World
Kayti VS the World was born around ten years ago while I sat in a tiny cubicle pouring over beauty and travel blogs. It started out as just an online diary, which then turned into documenting my cosmetic obsessions and experiments and then slowly over the last three-ish years my love of travel just kind of took over. It wasn’t planned it just kind of happened that way. I’ve always loved travel, ever since I was little I can remember making plans with my childhood best friend to move somewhere far from where we were as soon as we were old enough. But I suppose at some point everyone has that dream, right?
So, who am I? A question easier asked than answered. Well, I’m in my 20’s and am born and raised in the PNW, Washington State specifically. I grew up probably like most of you reading this. Confused about where I want my future to land me (let me be clear… I’m still confused), trying to figure out where my place is in the Type A career field, etc. My life has been a series of random jobs and one long term job from which I was laid off from twice (ironically enough Boeing, get it? Airplanes?). I am still laid off and trying to take self employment to a full time level, traveling and taking photos full time. I’m pretty close with my family, I have two sisters who I spend a lot of time with. I also spend a lot of time with my boyfriend who I met when I was in my independent don’t need a man phase and he’s honestly the best thing that’s ever happened to me. He’s supportive with my need to travel, tries to travel with me as much as possible, and he’s a pretty good Instagram boyfriend ;).
What Are You Passionate About
I should think the first answer to this should be obvious, but travel. I love the allure of going somewhere new where I don’t know anyone, don’t speak the language, don’t know the land, I love the culture shock of a new place. I love witnessing different ways of living and adapting to a way of life that is nothing like my own. Going somewhere unknown is creatively invigorating, it’s like pressing the restart button on all of your senses.
I am also wildly passionate about photography. Although I’m definitely still learning it’s something that I plan to spend a lot of my future doing. I’ve recently become very interested in taking portraits and am working my way into all of the mechanics of that. My boyfriend surprised me with my first drone this year so it’s my goal to actually know how to use it before next Summer… we’ll see how that goes!
How Can You Afford To Travel So Much
Most of my travel is self supported, with the occasional collaboration which does allow me some complimentary travel in exchange for exposure on this site and my social media channels. But other than that, it has mostly been me taking into account the goals I have and then creating a budget to accommodate for me to reach that goal by my specified date.

Are You Traveling Solo?
While I do travel solo some of the time, a lot of the time I’m either traveling with one of my sisters or my boyfriend. I love to share my love of travel with my friends and family and am always eager to bring them along with me to somewhere new. I’m one of those plan everything down to the last detail people, so I imagine it must be pretty nice traveling with me since you literally just have to tag along and do no planning whatsoever.
