Kay Kingsman

Kay is a Portland, Oregon-based travel writer and blogger who loves to eat candy, play The Sims, and cry when she gets lots on the subway abroad. When she's not documenting her ill-planned adventures on her blog, The Awkward Traveller, she is indulging in her favorite pastime: arguing with strangers online. Kay is passionate about making travel more accessible to historically excluded communities, and started a scholarship fund to sponsor passport costs and travel experiences for first-time jet setters. Kay started travel writing in 2020, and has since been published in TravelOregon, Fodors, Travel + Leisure, and her cat's TikTok newsletter.
