Shannon’s Desk

I love to share my travel stories and photos, share what I have been up to, and inspire others to go after their passions. Sometimes I also just like to share my thoughts on a topic or on something I read or watched and I needed a space to house these musings – so welcome to Shannon’s Desk.
