Trisha of P.S. I’m On My Way is one of those wickedly smart digital nomads who supports herself while traveling the world. Although she has now “settled down” in Peru she has the passport stamps to give her the street cred she needs to teach others how to make a living while following your passion for travel and adventure.

Let’s meet Trisha!

Trisha

When and how did you become a traveler?
I could trace it back to my love for football. I was a big fan of English football and when they had a tour in Asia, I literally followed them in Malaysia, Thailand and China. I did this because I didn’t think I would be able to go to Europe and watch them live. When I was 20, I was fortunate enough to be accepted in a study abroad program in Milan, Italy and from there, I realised I didn’t really want to study.

I spent my weekends traveling to other European cities like Barcelona, Vienna, Budapest and Paris. Through these travels, I met a lot of backpackers who are from all over the world and they are all doing the same — traveling long term. I learned a lot from them and realised that I can do that too. So I quit school, my job and travelled to Africa. Now I am on my third year traveling Latin America and it’s the best decision of my life!

Where do you love to travel?
Anywhere that best fits my interest. To be honest, I fell in love with Latin America so much that I am still stuck here and can’t leave!

Trisha-BA

Most memorable travel moment:
The World Cup 2014 in Brasil. I never imagined myself to be in an actual World Cup watching games live. Up to now, it’s all surreal to me!

What won’t you travel without?
Well, I would say my computer. I work online to sustain my travels so it will be really hard to not have a laptop most especially if you have a job that allows you to work from anywhere in the world!

A day isn’t complete until I…
Do yoga in the afternoon and a glass of wine for dinner.

Trisha-Wine

A quirky daily habit of mine is…
Reading… and drinking wine. HAHAHA!

Travel essential – 3 things you always travel with:
Laptop, Moisturizer and my sports watch.

Name one thing people would be surprised to find in your travel bag:
I don’t have any of those since I am traveling long-term. I make sure everything I have in my backpack are necessary.

What are your favorite food cities? What restaurants do you go to in each?
Buenos Aires, Lima, Bologna and Ensenada. I can’t recommend any restaurant in particular but I can tell you that real food (and wine) are in this cities!

Trisha-Pizza

Have you been anywhere which turned out to be totally different to how you imagined? If so, how?
Bolivia!!! I wasn’t expecting much when I went to Bolivia and I ended up staying for three months! Though food is not really impressive, Bolivia is so diverse that you can almost do anything! At first, I thought it will be really boring because of the old town setting but I got really comfortable as time passed.

Trisha-Present

What has travel taught you?
A lot of things but I would say “living in the present” is the best one. I learned not to worry about tomorrow because tomorrow is another day. It spoils our happiness to think about the future and we miss a lot of things in front of us while we are busy worrying about things that haven’t taken place.

Best and Worst place you’ve been to and why?
I can say the best place I’ve been is Barcelona, not because I am a big FC Barcelona fan but because everything is there. Good food, good wine, and the people — ahh, the people just makes you feel that you always belong! I haven’t been there in a long time but I know I will always feel the same towards BCN. Luckily, I haven’t labelled any place that’s ‘worst.’ I find beauty and peace in every place I go to so each of them offered unique and unforgettable experiences.

What’s one location on your bucket list?
US Roadtrip. I want to complete visiting all the national parks of the US while driving around the states with a Mexican food truck! I know it’s really a big dream but I am willing to make it happen!

Favorites:
Hotel: Kokopelli Hostels (Peru)
Airline: Emirates
Airport: Dubai International Airport
Mode of Transportation: Bus!!! I’ve travelled South America by land for two years!
Travel snack: Bananas. It’s the safest as junk food really makes me feel sick.
Country: Argentina
Travel Gear: Yoga mat
Travel App: All in yoga
Travel Book: Wuthering Heights – Emily Bronte
Travel Movie: The Motorcycle Diaries
Song on your smartphone: Say You’ll be There – Mo

    What an interesting lady. I’m sure she’ll get her dream to see all of the national parks, towing a food cart would be fun.
