I used to dream of living the kind of life that I didn’t need a vacation from. I didn’t want to have to retire to do what I love. So, I created a life that made traveling a key part of what I do, combining my greatest passions and adding new skills and expertise to make a digital nomad life supportable.
MICE, Ink & Wanderlust is where I share personal travel experiences, tips, and digital nomad business strategies. I was poised to leave the States and live around the globe pending my youngest son’s graduation from high school in 2020, but … COVID. In 2021 I embarked on the first leg of the journey of my dreams, living totally immersed in Spanish-speaking countries. Habla poquito Espanol!
I’m preparing to live in Oceania and South Asia now, but this time I’m doing things a lot differently—and I’m hosting an 8-day writing retreat in Bali with an acclaimed Aussie author and professor! Stay posted!

Who is Tia?
Hi! I’m Tia, a single mom, editor, author, entrepreneur, retreat curator, conference director, consultant, coach, and yogi living the greatest adventure of my life. I didn’t get a gap year to travel early in life, but now it’s time to realize more of my travel dreams. Until 2021, I’ve been wandering only North and Central Americas—solo or bringing friends and groups with me—but staying relatively close to home while my boys were small. Now 20 and 27, they’re fully grown! Mama can roam!
So, finally, I’m venturing further, on an extended getaway with nothing but a stack of one-way tickets, a bucket list of destinations, multiple businesses and income streams that support my digital nomad lifestyle, and an insatiable urge to indulge my wanderlust, immerse in other cultures and languages, explore, and just live beyond the borders of my home land.
