Born and raised in Subic Bay, Philippines, Trisha is one of those people who left their comfortable life to travel the world and learn about life. Her style is to stay in one place she likes for 3 months (or more) to know what it feels like to eat, cook, speak and sleep in another culture that isn’t hers. She’d like to believe she’s not traditionally traveling but she just chooses to be somewhere else all the time. Trisha also loves extremely spicy food, pineapples, plants and symmetry. In no particular order, her favourite cities in the world are Barcelona, Buenos Aires, Hong Kong and Tel Aviv. Aside from blogging, Trisha specialises on Social Media Marketing/Content, Content Creation, Influencer Outreach Campaigns and more
I just want to be somewhere else all the time.
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. We all have our own ways of traveling 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 write about personal stories on the road
When I started this blog, I only wanted to share my experiences with family and friends. Where I am from, the family is very important so when I told my parents I will travel the world, they did not agree with the decision – in fact, my mom did not talk to me for 2 years! I still continued writing narratives because I knew she will read them. I did not want her to worry so most of my essays are very personal and are based on my real experience.

How to support this blog
A lot of people think that blogging is easy but creating meaningful content for you to enjoy (and use) takes a lot of time and effort. Below are the ways on how to support my content creation.
» Donate to my coffee fund. Lots of readers have donated a dollar or two to my coffee fund. Maintaining this blog is costly so if you like what I write, feel free to support my work by buying me a cup of coffee!
» Follow my adventures on social media. Social media is also another crazy thing that I need to keep up in order for this blog to work. I am mostly on Youtube, Instagram, Tiktok, Facebook, Twitter, and Pinterest. Choose your poison. I update them all regularly!
» Avail my services. Aside from full-time blogging, I also run online consultations where I coach people how to be a digital nomad and travel the world. Right now (2021), I am busy being a trip planner for lots of travelers who don’t know how to plan their travels during COVID. I can pretty much do anything about travel. Feel free to contact me if you need anything special – we’ll work it out!
