I won the Marco European Itinerary competition!

Winner of Hi Marco

So I just wanted to say a big thank you to everyone who voted for me in the Marco European Itinerary competition! I cannot believe that I actually won, and it means so much for me for those who took the time to vote. Thank you once again for everyone’s support and for just checking out my blog. I am extremely grateful that I can share my journey with you all, and I hope you all enjoy my blog as much as I enjoy writing it.

      Thank you so much! Well, I’ve always dreamed of going to Marrakech, but unfortunately I’m going to Graduate School and will probably have to save the money!
