Hiya! I’m Shannon. In 2008, I began traveling the world. Since that day, quite a few things have happened. I never stopped traveling. I wrote a book (it’s about volunteering). The folks at National Geographic named me Traveler of the Year (I’m still reeling). Universities around the U.S. let me speak to their students about global citizenship (this is my passion). Millions of you found your way to this corner of the internet (holy cow!). And together we created an entire community with one common belief: a life of travel creates a story of the world worth telling.
The term “storytelling” might be trendy these days, and there are many medium posts on the topic to prove it. But the present relevance of storytelling as a buzzword does not change the fact that it remains one of the most compelling ways to reach people and hook them. We are deeply programmed to explain ourselves through narrative, from the cave drawings of the past, to oral histories, to today’s movies, television programmes, books, and blogs.

This blog is the account of my life after I liquidated everything to travel the world indefinitely and find a new home in my favorite place on earth; wherever that may be aka chase my dream.
I’m a professional author and international speaker, I co-founded a publishing company, and I travel full-time, moving to a new country every four months or so, that country determined by the votes of my readers.
