Hey, I’m Shannon!

Seeker, runner, worker, mother, partner, critic, slacker (not necessarily in that order of priority).

Things I love: Austin, water, the outdoors, fish sauce, my boys, dives, music, flip-flops, snark, community involvement, culinary anthropology, travel, kindness, enthusiasm, guts

My style of travel varies depending on how many times I've previously visited a place. First time, I try to pack as many sights & tastes as possible into my window of opportunity, with little sleep and a packed agenda for each day. If it's the 2nd or 3rd or 40th visit to a beloved destination, I like to do more of a "live like a local" experience, staying in a more residential-ish setting, and taking a slow pace (preferably on foot or public transport) to interact with people and focus on 1 or 2 activities that I enjoy most in that city. If it's business travel or another task-oriented trip, my M.O. is more likely to be about quiet & clean, a very comfortable bed, great internet service, privacy, and black-out curtains.

BTW, I'm a Yelp fanatic and an active participant in the exceptionally friendly & fun-loving Yelp community in Austin, TX, so definitely look me up there if you need some advice when visiting our fair city. leftymama dot y-e-l-p dot etc

I began my Airbnb experience with a trip to NOLA in May 2013, and I have many friends who host via Airbnb. I just may become a host in the future....
