But you can call me Shan - 'Shannon' just sounds a bit stodgy for my tastes. Anywho, thanks for checking out my profile!
I'm just a young professional from a tiny rock in the middle of the Pacific Ocean. :) Travel has always been my passion - probably only rivaled by my aquarian penchant for loving humanitarian and community causes. I believe that there most definitely is a difference between vacation and travel. The former is a time to escape from the world, while the latter is an opportunity to embrace a whole new facet of it. I love visiting new places, learning new things, and meeting new people (rather cliche, I know, but it's so true!). Last random fact about me: despite having been born and raised in a tropical island paradise, I actually prefer cooler weather.
