The traveler was born in the Philippines and went to St. Louis, Missouri as an exchange student. She later relocated to Miami where she worked as a nurse, according to an NBC6 report.

Speaking to NBC6, Luisa said she quit her job in her early 20s to travel. Luisa then focused on real estate as a means to fund her trips.

"Don’t be afraid, just go. Don’t wait for anybody, because if you wait, it will never happen," she was quoted as saying in the report.

Her Instagram page served as a travel diary of sorts, featuring snapshots of the places she traveled and the friends she made.
