Welcome to Hummingbird!

I don’t know about you, but coming up with a name for anything is always the hardest part. After already having a blog that was named after me, I decided I didn’t want my name in the title of this blog. Which got me thinking. People always talk about having a spirit animal, and I thought to myself, what is my spirit animal?

With a little bit of research, I settled on the hummingbird. Hummingbird is most definitely my spirit animal.

Why you may ask? Here is the meaning of hummingbird;

The hummingbird generally symbolizes joy and playfulness, as well as adaptability. Additional symbolic meanings are:

  • Independence
  • Being more present
  • Lightness of being, enjoyment of life
  • Bringing playfulness and joy in your life
  • Lifting up negativity
  • Swiftness, ability to respond quickly
  • Resiliency, being able to travel great distances tirelessly

For those of you who know me personally, that is a pretty spot on description of who I am as a person.

For those of you that don’t know me my name is Kayla Findlay, I am a lover of soy lattes, good food, wine and reality tv. Consumed by wanderlust and seeking the next adventure. I am just a girl who wants to see the world and spread a little kindness along the way.

I started my first blog in 2013 and I used it as a way to procrastinate my way through university. If there was ever a paper I didn’t want to do, I would write a blog post instead.

Fast forward to today and I am a university graduate, and I work full time at an event management company.

My overall goal for this blog is for it to be a travel blog. However, I am using 2017 as the year that I actually don’t travel. I am paying off debt, and saving for bigger and better trips in the future. With that said, I am using this year to write about local travel (in my hometown), how I am surviving on my very small monthly budget, the steps I go through in order to plan a trip, and all of the fun stuff in between.

I hope you enjoy my blog!
