Hey there, I'm Kym
Thanks for visiting my private corner of the internet 😸
I'm a full-time traveller, living on a sail boat and heading up the marketing at Ghost.org. This is my personal space where I write my unfiltered thoughts about things I'm most passionate about: travel, building a unique lifestyle, sailing and cat rescue.

Welcome to my corner of the internet
The site you're looking at today was born out of a long standing fear of publishing things online. Writing for a public space, with no idea who your audience really are, can be daunting. Most of the time I'm not even sure who I'm writing for — or why I'm writing in the first place.
I created this members-only space so that I can write with more purpose, share my unfiltered ideas and observations and connect with people who are interested in similar things.
I'd love for you to sign up and join my small community, but I have one small prerequisite. I want you to email me and let me know who you are and how you found my website!
Once you've done that I'll add you as a member and you'll be able to log in, access the archive, and get new posts delivered by email.
I'm not interested in creating for people who silently consume. I'd rather build something for a smaller group of people who have taken the time to say hi.
What will I write about, exactly?
Building a better life.
I'm deeply interested in following a path that defies the status quo. I'm always in search of the next new adventure, new place, new skill to learn or new set of improvements that results in a more positive and productive way to spend time on this earth.
Careers & remote work.
I've been in the marketing industry for over a decade and learnt everything from the basics up. It's been a bumpy road, and sometimes I didn't think I'd ever find satisfaction in my career – but then I discovered remote work. Building a career from the ground is something that took years of dedication, but if I knew then what I know now, I could have fast-tracked a lot of this progress. I'll share some insights about my experience with marketing, remote work and career progression.
Travelling and being a nomad.
I also travel a lot, constantly, in fact. Sometimes I make photographs and videos of the places I visit and share stories from different corners of the world. Other times I write about what it's like to travel in the way I do, and what I've learnt along the way.
It only makes sense to write about things that I've truly experienced in real life, and always from my own perspective of course. I'll be writing about all of the things I just listed and everything else in-between, to an audience of people who want to read it, and only those people.
