Who Am I


Hey guys!

First of all, I just want to say: WELCOME to Exploring the Map! I am so glad and thankful you are here to experience my adventures. My name is, Taylor and I am an American currently living in the Netherlands with my husband and two dogs. We have been here for a little over a year. I am hoping to help inspire travel to everyone, everywhere. Also, I would like to help those individuals at all age levels and family sizes who are on a budget to see that traveling is not as expensive as they think.

Growing up in the same city my entire life, I always knew I wanted to travel. In the summer of 2012 I was able to travel to 12 different states in 3 months while marching with a Drum and Bugle Corps (Spirit of Atlanta), which gave me even more motivation to travel. I graduated from college with a Hospitality and Tourism Management degree and then took a few years to get married and decide on how this was going to happen. After some time, my husband got offered a job in the Netherlands. Now, I am 26 and have the opportunity of a lifetime.

After a year here, I have already been able to travel to the United Kingdom, Ireland, Belgium, Germany and of course the Netherlands. By the end of the year I hope to add many more.

I am going to share with you, all of my adventures, both good and bad. I hope that this will inspire you to take a risk, and see the world.
