WELCOME + THANKS FOR STOPPING BY!
The girl behind Kaylchip.com
My name is Kaylee Price, a wandering writer that has never been very good at staying in one place for too long. I “live” in Vancouver, BC where I was born, but travel almost every month in an attempt to quench the ever growing thirst that is wanderlust.I have visited over 35 countries, and have explored many towns, cities, and a few too many vineyards..
When I’m not traveling and/or blogging, I work in fitness for a local city Parks and Recreation Department (yah! a real life Parks and Rec! Except with no Leslie Knope. Which sucks. Leslie Knope is the best.) When I’m not working, I’m drinking wine with my friends, watching sports with my boyfriend, or laying on the couch at my parents house pretending to be a kid again.
My Favorite Destinations
The places I have absolutely fallen in love with are:
- El Nido, Phillipines
- Santa Teresa, Costa Rica
- Barcelona, Spain
- Maui, Hawaii
- Canggu, Bali
- Nashville, USA
Places of Expertise
Palm Springs, California
I visit Palm Springs, California every few months as my parents own a condo there (and it’s where I grew up.. more on that below). I am definitely an expert in all things Palm Springs, so if you have any questions, I’m your girl! (hint: Majority of my recommendations revolve around eating at In-N-Out.)
I try to get to Maui at least once every year to two years. It is an expensive place, but I’ve learned to work around that tiny, insignificant detail *little boys voice from Love Actually*. Feel free to ask me any questions you have about the Valley Isle. It’s amazing!
The ‘Couve! Vancity! The 6o4! That place that hosted the 2010 Olympics! That place I got drunk in for two weeks straight during the 2010 Olympics! Vancouver is my city. I love everything about this town (except for the fact that I can’t afford purchase a home here, there’s no uber, and no IN-N-OUT..). If you haven’t been to Vancouver, talk to me. Get at me. Holla at yur gurl. Let’s chat! … and go for wine when you come visit!
Top of My Bucket List
- An African Safari
- Visiting Iceland
- Witness the Northern Lights
- Hike Machu Picchu
Unbeknownst to my mother, tonic water is a hell of a labour inducer. One minute she is dancing to Motown hours before the clock struck midnight to ring in a new year, and the next she is welcoming her second daughter into the world. Born on the first day of the 90’s, weeks early, I couldn’t wait for the adventure to start. I was ready to explore the world. That is a trait that has, and will forever be engrained into my DNA.
My childhood was split between Palm Springs, California and Vancouver, Canada. By age 8, I knew my passport number by heart, knew when to be scared of the customs guy with the weird eyebrows, knew to chew gum during take off and landing, and knew that the world was a lot bigger than the neighborhood I played street hockey in. This is where the love affair began.
Those years of bouncing around from home to home, school to school, allowed me to see the beauty in the unconventional lifestyle. To see the luxuries that come with the nomadic freedom of exploring and never really grounding your roots too deeply in a given place.
After College Graduation
After working at a magazine and later graduating from BCIT with a degree in Marketing & Communications, I took off on my first extended travel excursion to spend one year abroad exploring Southeast Asia. While travelling, I began to scribble down my thoughts, feelings + adventures as they came. This was the perfect outlet for me to express myself, reflect on moments gone by and subsequently share them with the real world back home. It was, in a way, a strange and comforting attachment to those close to me that I was missing, as if I was talking directly to them.
