Unique experiences

Make travel your way of life

Whether you want to be a digital nomad, learn how to travel solo or go on a backpacking trip on your own, joining Trisha on her trips will give you a free workshop on how to live a life of travel. She is very generous on sharing information and loves it when people decides to change their lives.

This is not a group tour

There is no itinerary to follow. You will not be herded like a bunch of tourists on the streets. You are literally going to join Trisha’s daily activities and you can opt-out on activities. Some days, you want to rest and be on your own – we understand that 100%!


💃🏻 How it works

Every traveler is different so we designed this tour to be an opt-in/out kind of tour. We don’t want you to stay in a hotel that you don’t like, nor eat food you are not interested in nor do activities that you don’t feel like doing. Everything is up to you!

All tour participants pay a fixed fee. This fixed fee is for you to learn how to travel on your own while being in the company of people. Trisha will also take you to spots that you won’t be able to find if you are traveling as a tourist. This is an extremely local tour so get ready! Just look at Trisha’s Instagram stories and see how local she travels.

You will not be herded as a tourist group. You will go on these so-called tours like you are friends. All travelers who joined Trisha on her trip definitely had a meaningful travel experience. 9/10 traveled on their own after this trip.

Trisha makes sure she can mingle with everyone and have time for everyone so each of these tours are limited to 10 participants.

We will head to the rooftop bar and have our farewell brunch. Praga is right in front of the cathedral so we will have the best views of the city!

5:00 PM – Departure of participants

I can’t believe I traveled with someone who I just saw on Pinterest. I never really connect with travel blogs but Trisha is a very unique person! Spending three days with her opened my eyes to so many opportunities and learnings. This trip was super fun because we were free to do whatever we wanted. I also met a lot of solo travelers and interesting people through Trisha. Highly recommended for those who are scared to travel alone to Mexico!

I can’t begin to write how grateful I am for joining Trisha in Oaxaca. She travels way differently and I think this is something we should all learn to do in these changing times! I was fortunate to join Trisha in her local Mexican family stay. That was quite an experience to remember. I never would have done that on my own. She inspired me so much now I want to do a lot of local stays. Thank you for everything, Trish!

Rio de Janeiro Carnival 2023

Many people are afraid to travel to Rio de Janeiro but Trisha has over 7 years of experience going here by herself! The Rio de Janeiro Carnival is one of the best events in Brazil. Trisha will take you to secret samba parties and introduce you to a local kind of Rio de Janeiro. This is one of our hottest tours at P.S. I’m On My Way!

I joined Trisha’s Rio de Janeiro trip for 5 days and she really is the best! I met her local friends which changed my outlook about safety in Rio. As an American traveler, this experience opened my eyes on how different it is to travel with someone who knows her way around. Thank you Trish! I look forward to joining you in Oaxaca!

Traveling with this woman changed my life. My parents were so against me going to Brazil but Trisha helped me convince them. From joining her trip, I am no longer scared to travel on my own and I feel like I can do anything. If you are a female and wants to be empowered, definitely travel with Trisha. It will be a memorable experience!
