About me

Hi! I’m K, The Awkward Traveller.

And first of all welcome and thank you for visiting my site! So uh, this is the page all about lil ol’ me. Hmmm, where do I start?

*nervous sweats*

Well, you can call me K! Did I already say that? My full name is complicated and confusing, so K/Kay works just fine!

Why do I call myself the awkward traveller? Mostly because it’s painfully true. Second, it sums up my blog pretty thoroughly, a series of awkward travel experiences. And thus, the awkward traveller was named.

I hail from the great land of avocados, horrendous traffic, and plastic surgery. Shoutout to Los Angeles, how you doin. I really really really love seeing new places, but no matter how far I travel, Southern California will always be my favorite. I’ve lived in a couple other states as a kid, Alabama, Georgia, Northern California (yes, basically a different state), but that’s the most exciting thing about my childhood. It was overall pretty uneventful. My family wised up and we eventually moved back to SoCal. Even with all of its faults (San Andreas pun not intended), Southern California will always be my favorite place in the world.

Currently, I’m living in Oregon. That’s all I’m going to say about that. (Oregon and I have a love-hate relationship). I also have a love-hate relationship with my job (mostly hate). I’m joking, it’s fine, but the best part is that I get a lot of vacation time! So I can blow all of my money on plane tickets and phone game apps. And Oregon is very green, chalk full of waterfalls, hiking trails, kombucha, and the highest strip club per capita in the nation. Oregon is a nice place to explore for now, yanno, when it’s not too cold or rainy for me to leave the house.

I’m also a writer! Well, yes, a blogger of course, but I mean I like to write fiction! I’ve had a couple of short stories published, but I am currently working on publishing a novel! Not the first one I’ve written, but the only one that I felt was good enough to be read by other people. You can read an excerpt of my first novel HERE ! I also love reading! And playing video games. And eating candy! I am usually juggling twelve different thoughts at any given time (and most of them are pop culture references) so it’s hard to make sense of what I’m talking about.

So in a nutshell, I like travelling and eating hamburgers and watching trash reality television. I am also discovering that I AM TERRIBLE at figuring out all this blog stuff (like how the heck to you make pictures not sideways on mobile???? someone help sos), but I’m -very- slowly learning haha. I’m also growing a lot as a person. Travel has been the best (and also the hardest) teacher for me, and with every trip I come out stronger and more confident in myself. I’m still a weirdo though.

And uh, what else do you guys want to know about me?? Hahah, I guess I’ll answer questions about myself as you guys ask them.

Follow me on Instagram (@theawkwardtraveller), Twitter (@awktravels), Facebook (@awktravels), and subscribe to the blog to keep up with all my adventures! Yanno, if you want, no pressure or anything…haha. Thanks for stopping by! Come back soooon ~
