Natasha and I follow each other on Instagram.  And two things stood out on her profile bio.  First, she travels on a Trinidad and Tobago passport, not one of the most powerful passports in the world.  The second is she has lived in ten different countries.  That piqued my interest to invite her on the podcast.  

Thanks to my patrons Simen Flotvik Mathisen, William Schelling, Steph Rowe, Ted Nims, Bisa Myles, and Adam Hickman for supporting Counting Countries. They help pay for the production of this podcast.  You can support this podcast by going to Patreon.com/CountingCountries.  My patrons will hear the final part of my conversation with Natasha.

 

Natasha was born in the Carribean and was able to explore the region growing up.  But Natasha’s serious travels began when she relocated to the Pacific Islands.  She shares with us how she balances her travel when her spouse can not always join her and talks about relying on her 193 travel crew.
