Kat is an avid solo traveler who’s consistently humbled by the generosity of strangers she meets on the road. She’s happiest waking up in her tent, topping out on a rock climb, strolling through an outdoor market, covering her apartment in a thin-layer of sawdust, or lazing away the day with a cool drink on a sunny patio.
