ABOUT P.S. I'M ON MY WAY

When I was 22, young and physically fit, I decided that I should start traveling the world. It all happened to me when I went to a University in Milan, Italy. I spent most of my life studying Fashion and Arts Management at the same time, seeing Europe. I was able to go around on my feet and learned a lot of things from different people and culture. My love for football also encouraged me to travel more. Three years ago, Liverpool FC and Arsenal had an Asian Tour. I followed every match and stalked them wherever they were. I booked expensive tickets, got hungry but still, I was able to see them play live. That was an eye opener for me to see more places. Thank you, Steven Gerrard and Cesc Fabregas. Above all this, I am a hardcore Barcelona FC fan.

MY WAY OF TRAVEL

We all have our own ways of travelling and mine is a little bit different. I always volunteer, not just to get free food and accommodation (well, that’s one of the reasons) but to also learn how to eat, cook, speak and live like a local. I take my time, I stay long-term because I believe this is the only way that you will be able to know about a culture and a country. I don’t go to famous landmarks and take photos (although that would be a bonus every once in a while) but I just live: letting things flow like I actually live here (or wherever I may be). There’s no need to rush anyway.

I am not traveling. I just choose to be somewhere else, all the time.

Of course, I need money too. To be able to sustain my travels, I work remotely as a social media manager for different companies who wishes to boom their social media engagement. Having mentioned “remote,” this means I can work anywhere in the world — whether I’m by the beach in Copacabana, Rio de Janeiro; a cafe in Paris or even a Carribean Cruise! (As long as there’s internet, of course.)

WHO IS TRISHA?

I am 26 years old, born and raised in Subic Bay, Philippines. I used to work in the Fashion Industry but I realised I want to travel the world so I quit. I love languages, burgers, coffee and hot sauce.

2 years ago, before I started to write a blog, this is what I wrote about myself and I never changed it since. Now that I want to change it, I don’t know how to start. What have I become by traveling the world? Am I the same person?

HER FAVOURITE THINGS

I’m a big Barcelona FC fan (or football in general). I grew up playing the sport.

I love to read. I can read one book a day!

I love to eat cupcakes and Asian food.

I love learning languages. I’ve learned how to speak 5 languages just by traveling.

I’m in love with cats.

If there’s one thing I can eat for the rest of my life, it would be burger and tacos.

HOW TO NAVIGATE THIS BLOG

First time to visit this blog? This will help!

I am not a technical blogger. I only write whatever runs in my mind without editing it. I only edit when my mother and sister endlessly puts time to ‘grammar-nazi’ me. To help you understand further what my journey is all about, I highly recommend that you read my inspiration section. With this, you will also know how I want to navigate all my travels.
