The Face Behind Travelust 101

Mo's profile photo

My name is Mo, and I am a project manager turned professional scuba diver, who fell in love with Southeast Asia during a solo backpacking trip in 2013 and decided to make a new life abroad 😉

I love a good crime novel and I am a nut when it comes to ethnic cuisines, strong coffee, and exploring new destinations.

My recent obsession is inspiring women to embark on their own adventures and create a life of discovery, growth, and fulfillment.
