What are you looking for?


I'm not sure I should be so bold as to call these "Frequently" asked questions - Im not that popular. But, I have gotten these questions quite a bit over the years that I've had this blog and thought I'd answer them all in one spot for ease of reference:
Is your name actually Kay?
My name is actually Krystal but every female in my family has a name beginning with the letter "K". Also, one of my best friends calls me 'Kay' and it stuck as a nickname over the years. As I'm an attorney and don't want my blog being found in a google search of my full real name (yet) I go by the nickname. I also never mention my last name on the blog (for the same reason) but don't really care if people know it. I just don't want one google search to reveal both my professional work and the blog

What Caribbean country are you from? And where the heck is it?
I'm from Trinidad and Tobago, but live in the island of Trinidad. Trinidad and Tobago is a twin island Republic (so one country) and is located in the West Indies aka its a Caribbean island. Although it is in the Caribbean it is a Southern island and therefore very close to Venezuela. We are an oil producing island and so rich in culture that I can't help but bragging on my country now and again. Check out my Caribbean Life page for more.

Why did you start the blog?
I started the blog in 2014 when my sister Kerry was ill. She passed away a couple weeks later. I used the blog as an escape for real life since I honestly wasn't really living at that time. I've always loved writing and it was just the outlet I needed.

Why is the blog's name "The Kay Times"
Although I had always wanted to be an attorney, at one point in my life, for a very brief moment, I also wanted to be a journalist. I'd spend hours reading newspapers online, like the the New York Times. My blog's name is a play on that ... 

Where is Danny from?
My husband Danny is from Bucharest Romania. Its a country I am fascinated by and would love to learn more about. Its history is so rich and unique and I could listen to Danny speak about his country for hours! So far Ive been to Romania a few times and you can check out those posts here.

Where did you meet him?
We met in Trinidad (my country) in 2016, we got engaged in 2017 and our wedding was in April 2018!

Do you speak Romanian language?
Currently, no, but I am using the app Duolingo to learn and hope to be fluent soon. I so know some words and phrases though!

You travel to Europe a lot are you planning to move to Europe?
Currently we have no plans to move to Europe as we both love living in the Caribbean and my job here is a pretty good one. That said, it hasn't been totally ruled out for the future. I will say, while we will likely travel to Romania every year, we aren't likely to move there. London though - its my favourite city and if I get the opportunity I would totally move there.
