Bali Expat Chronicles

Bali Expat Chronicle cover- me and Digo on a scooter

Welcome to the Bali Expat Chronicles!

Honestly, I debated for a long time whether or not to create this section…but I finally decided to create a platform where I can be open about my life as a Bali expat, discuss the unpleasant side of living in a developing country (after all, we get enough “fluffed” up versions of travel on IG) and share with you “behind the scenes” of a travel blogger.

I LOVE writing blogs about my spontaneous adventures, scuba diving trips, and destinations guides.  But there is so much more that goes on in my expat life beyond traveling – from finding a decent laundromat that doesn’t ruin my clothes, falling in love with street dogs, trying to stay in shape, to discovering myself newly in this ongoing journey called life.

Every day in Bali is full of beautiful, and not-so-beautiful moments – and I want a space where I can express and share all angles of my expat life, even the ugly ones.

This section will contain a more raw, unfiltered, and vulnerable peak into Mo’s Paradise Diaries.

So come away with me if you’d like, and join my expat adventures 😉
