This 13 episode x 30 minute travel series, follows a moving diary of Jojo’s travels from the rustic beauty of the Himalayas to the bustling metropolis of Tokyo, covering a diverse array of uniquely cultural experiences, “It was such an incredible, soul-enriching journey for me, from bathing elephants in Nepal and flying past Mount Everest, to stepping into the shoes of an apprentice Geisha in Japan, to learning the art of patience in Tai Chi”, says Jojo. Not to mention, she even gets right into the kitchen of a Michelin starred restaurant in Hong Kong, “I’ve learnt about the healing benefits of ancient power ingredients and how to make traditional dishes from scratch from a wide variety of chefs on my travels.”

Viewers can really feel a part of Jojo’s journey as she gets thrown into activities she has never done before while immersing herself wholeheartedly in local culture. She was more than just a face of the series. Jojo was a part of the core team at cutting edge production house, Kyanite TV where she helped conceptualize the show from its seed idea to final execution. She was completely entrenched in research and pre-production as the lead scriptwriter of the series so you can authentically hear her point of view, insightful thoughts and candid honesty, every step of the way. Her reactions were spontaneously captured in real-time from screaming her lungs out while riding the world’s steepest roller coaster to observing the power of silence while meditating with a Zen Buddhist monk. This has surely been the trip of a lifetime for Struys, across all terrain.

As Michael Lim, Executive Producer of Kyanite TV and Director of the series says,“We were so privileged to have had access to such jaw dropping, incredible locations. With our team of experienced cinematographers, we were able to overcome the challenges of filming in a diverse range of climate conditions from the heat of the tropics to remote villages in Nepal to the breathtaking beauty of snow-capped Mount Fuji. It was an unforgettable adventure.”
This marks the first time Jojo has hosted a travel show on TLC, Discovery Channel Asia,“This has been a dream come true for me to bring my passion for wellness and travel to an international audience.”
