Kayla is a managing editor for giletravel.com and HGTV.com. Kayla resides in the historic Old Fourth Ward (O4W) neighborhood of Atlanta with her husband and two adopted cats. She considers herself a master packer and only travels with a 9-by-14-by-22-inch carry-on bag — no matter the destination. So far, she's traveled to 17 countries and hopes to constantly increase this number with her equally adventurous husband in tow. When she's not writing, you can find her walking the BeltLine in search of food, playing on Edgewood Avenue or drinking a glass of wine at a weekend festival.
