Maggie Takes Europe
I'm a 22 (soon-to-be 23) year-old fiercely independent, creative and extroverted bisexual woman! My main hobbies include treating my husky Layla as if she's my child, drinking wine and of course, TRAVELING.
I'm from the southern state of Arkansas in the U.S. and the best place I have ever visited was Amsterdam-- the architecture and overall vibe was so lovely and cheerful. I have been to 10-15 big cities in the USA, Cancun, Bahamas, Dominican Republic, and 6 countries in Europe!
My main focus in life is to continuously expose myself to new people and places.

My best friend since 8th grade and I lived together all 4 years of college, and last year, immediately after graduating, we backpacked Europe together for 2 weeks. It was the most incredible and liberating experience of my life thus far! Having gone through middle school, high school, college, and everything in-between together, it was the perfect way to kick off "adulthood". I had traveled to many cities in the U.S. before, but this was my first trip abroad, without my parents.
Amsterdam, The Netherlands
We either flew or took a train to each location and stayed in a cozy Airbnb each time. Upon arriving in each city, we knew our time was incredibly precious -- which led us to explore every inch we could until we, quite literally, couldn't move our legs any longer.
My Europe trip, which I chose to tag #mappingeuropewithmadi, impacted my life in more ways than one. It's benefited my interview process, confidence level, and definitely kicked my "travel bug" into high gear.
We didn't use a guide -- we planned the entire trip (stay, itinerary, flights) ourselves.
I would highly recommend Airbnb when traveling almost anywhere, however!
I tried Guinness for the first time, at the Guinness factory itself! (LOL, maybe I'm late)
