Bali - 2018

All About Me

In a world where adventures unfold in every corner, I'm Maggie, a single mom, non-profit warrior, and a newfound enthusiast of life's extraordinary journeys. Buckle up for the wild ride of my travel and self-discovery escapades, where spontaneity and laughter reign supreme. As a single mom navigating the challenging terrain of raising a college graduate dynamo, my life is a harmonious blend of work, parenting, and a ceaseless pursuit of joy. The tale begins with a remarkable twist—I, the passport-less wonder, only held that coveted document for the first time at the age of 38. The travel bug bit, but it wasn't just a nibble; it was a full-blown, adrenaline-pumping adventure that changed the course of my life.

In a bold move inspired by a quirky twist of fate, I embarked on a 3-day solo jaunt to Paris. Why? Well, after being unceremoniously ousted from a bridal party set to soar to England, I decided to channel my inner wanderlust warrior. Paris became my refuge, a canvas for rediscovering myself amidst the charming cobblestone streets and the whispers of the Seine.

โ€‹

With echoes of Elizabeth Gilbert's "Eat, Pray, Love" guiding me, I plunged headfirst into a two-year odyssey of self-discovery. These weren't just years; they were chapters of metamorphosis, where I fell back in love with myself, found spirituality, and unearthed a passion for travel that would become the cornerstone of my life.

โ€‹

The big 4-1 approached, and I embraced it with a solo voyage to Bali. It wasn't just a birthday celebration; it was a liberation. Amidst the lush landscapes and the gentle hum of Balinese culture, I found solace, made friends, and even dared to commemorate the moment with a tattoo in my hotel room. Bali became the threshold to my love affair with solo travel—a romance marked by the thrill of independence and the joy of discovering the world on my terms.

โ€‹

In this odyssey, I rediscovered my enduring passion as an artist, sculptor, and former production designer. Embracing the strokes of creativity, I expressed my journey through various artistic mediums. During my pause for self-reflection, I celebrated the many facets of my artistic identity, each discovery serving as a testament to the boundless possibilities that unfold when we allow ourselves to bloom.

โ€‹

Then, a delightful plot twist entered my narrative—a loving partner, Joe, who shared my zest for life. Together, we embarked on a symphony of escapades, from concerts that made our hearts sing to hikes that pushed our limits, road trips that unfolded like spontaneous poetry, and camping under a tapestry of stars. We chased waterfalls, explored the nooks of our country, and ventured beyond borders to discover the beauty of distant lands.

โ€‹

As my story unfolds, the ink of my experiences writes a tale of resilience, self-love, and an unquenchable thirst for adventure. From the chaos of solo escapades to the harmonious melody of shared laughter, my journey is a testament to the transformative power of embracing life's twists and turns.

โ€‹

So, join me, Maggie, as I navigate the labyrinth of life—one adventure at a time. Let's explore, laugh, and savor the richness of each moment, for in these tales lies the magic that shapes who we are and the extraordinary world we call our own. ๐ŸŒ
