What inspired you to start traveling?
“My parents inspired my love of travel when they would pack their four children into a station wagon and hit the road for the summer. My mother was a teacher and my dad saved up all of his vacation for these trips. I also worked for an airline for five years and had my first taste of international travel then. On a trip to Peru with my daughter, we hung out with a man at a hostel, that was working on his laptop from a hammock. I knew then that I could find a way to work from anywhere.”
What inspired you to start your blog and write a travel book?
“After the “Great Recession” in the U.S. I knew there was a better way to live, to not just acquire ‘stuff’. I started the blog during my four months of travel through South and Central America, Mexico and Cuba to chronicle the life of a digital nomad. I started the travel series to inspire unlikely travelers, older women and people who thought travel was only for the young, to explore the world’s trails.”
What is your blog and travel series all about?
My blog, the Global Mobile Work, is in transition. At first it focused on location independent lifestyles. Now that I am working inside a company, I’ve discovered that location independence isn’t just for freelancers. I work on a global team and all of our work has to be done virtually. So, now I am focused on how to make virtual teams work.
My travel series, Two Broke Chicas Backpack through South and Central America, Mexico and Cuba, captures my four-month journey across continents. I want to show skeptical travelers that you can make travel a lifestyle on any budget, at any age. Through stories and how-to tips and tricks you can easily experience these destinations for yourself. Like how to find the best and most affordable food at local mercardos. Book 3 in the series came out in December, the Center of America.”
What’s your favorite place in Prague?
“Kavarna Slavia, it’s a must-see. Go at night to listen to the piano player and get a seat by the window to look up at Prague Castle. For a location taken over by tourists, they have amazingly delicious and reasonably priced food. I love to go late night and finish the evening with the best hot chocolate I’ve ever tasted. Plus, it’s open until midnight!”
