Who

 

Hello there, I am Kyna, part-time travel blogger. I have worked in Accounting in Industry, a digital marketing agency and am now contributing back to my alma mater, UBC. My writing has been featured in Modern Mix Vancouver

This blog is my side hustle. I wish to share my various passions for travelling, hiking, health and wellness, fitness, reading, exploring places, cultures and cuisines with fellow enthusiasts, & help you, my beloved reader, plan adventures. I also write to be free; to express and understand myself.

Values: Ambition, Adventure, Curiosity, Flexibility, Hard Work, Independence, Self-Expression, Wealth.

"You don't owe anyone but yourself an explanation for your choices."

Embrace your journey with me and follow along on my adventures!

HUSTLE

Hustle means understanding yourself, pushing past fear, rejection and failure to work relentlessly towards your vision and goals. It means building a life of your own design, re-evaluating and challenging yourself to refine what your goals are. 

DREAM

I believe in the power of optimism, passion and dreams - and to embrace life in its complexity, craziness, beauty, sadness and magnitude. 

We are never too young or old to chase our passions and be present in the moment, while working hard towards our goals. I believe in building an amazing community here by sharing content relevant to you guys. Always open to feedback as my objective is to provide valuable content to my audience.

EXPLORE

The natural, undistilled beauty of BC never fails to amaze me, and I will capture it here. 

My content is created for tourists or locals who wish to explore beautiful places in BC and beyond.

Travel content is written with the budget-conscious, efficient and curious traveller in mind, always with a pre-planned itinerary in hand, while still open to the intriguing & occasional detour.

Top travel memories include skipping among giant LED lit supertrees in the futuristic garden of Singapore, gazing up at mesmerizing stained glass windows in La Sagrada Familia in Barcelona, strolling the well-manicured gardens of the Château de Versailles, ascending the Eiffel Tower and taking in panoramic views of Paris, walking among glittering icebergs washed ashore along Diamond Beach in Iceland, and soaking in the sights of mountains at Vestrahorn Mountain in Iceland.

Let me know what content would best help you plan your vacations & definitely reach out to me at hustledreamexplore@gmail.com if you want more trip advice or my itinerary for a fuss-free vacation by area. Also, I would love for you to comment to share about your trips or experiences.

I will also share discoveries of interesting cafes, eateries and hidden gems to encourage you to #explorelocal and expand your perspective to nooks & crannies that pique your interest.
