About The Blog

Mission Statement

A Cup of Kims is a blog created to help you to live and experience new cities on a budget. Through the sharing of things we have learned through our own experiences, we hope to inspire and encourage you to find new ways to experience the local cities and towns you’re in (or near) without breaking the bank. We share everything from our favorite travel experiences to how we budget to get the most out of our overnight trips. This blog  is maintained by two travelers, who love experiencing new places without spending a ton of money.



Story of the Name

Behind the Name

We both love coffee and we love to travel. Whether it’s going on a day trip to a local metro or traveling out of the city for a few days, we love to travel whenever we’re able to afford to and whenever our schedule permits. In each city we visit, we try visiting local coffee shops because we believe you can tell a lot about a place by its cafes.


However, as people who work in public service, we do not have the money to go on expensive or luxury vacations. We realized that if we still wanted to travel and experience places we have never visited before, we would have to learn how to do so, but without breaking the bank. Over time we learned some tricks of the trade for being able to experience more places on a budget and on this space.

As a result, this blog was brewed (get it?). 

It also sounds like “a couple of Kims” depending on how quickly you say it 😉
