Thanks for stopping by Trips and Salsa! I’m Keili. This blog is just a mishmash of my life full of adventures, creative projects and random thoughts.

I was born in North Carolina (go Tar Heels), grew up in Seattle (yay rain), studied abroad in Brisbane Australia, started college in North Carolina (big mistake) but finished in Hawaii (best decision of my life), moved to Los Angeles (idk why) and somehow ended up living there for 7(!) years. But now I’m based in San Diego and travel often to Hawaii and wherever I can find a cheap flight to.

I was diagnosed with Leukemia in May 2020 during worldwide pandemic so my travel blog turned into a cancer update blog for the time being.

I’m a lover of sunshine, the ocean, traveling, flowers, burritos and anything delightful.

I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoy creating. Let’s share art and happiness because we could all use a little more positivity.
