PHOTOGRAPHY: Fajardo, Puerto Rico I was surprised by the grandness of Fajardo’s central square. It is pretty, clean, and colorful. The neighborhoods are a unique mix of colors, patterns, and styles. There are vibrant interesting details. There are crumbling homes right next to well-maintained more modern structures. The “yard art” is different in […]
2016 was a crazy and awesome year. It was so crazy that I did not get around to editing my travel photos until recently. I quit my job (again), but this time it was NOT to take a travel sabbatical. It was to re-design my lifestyle, focus on personal/ professional development goals, and start my […]
A few years ago, I wrote about the Little Italy Food Tour in San Francisco. I recently discovered photos I took of this historic bakery. I love these images, so I figured I should share… even if I am a bit tardy. San Francisco Bread Company What is the most surprisingly interesting place you’ve photographed?
You’re interested in learning Spanish? AWESOME, but let me (very quickly!) tell you about myself first. My name is Shannon, and I am a native, English speaker. I love to travel, so I learned to speak Spanish fluently. It wasn’t easy, and I still have very awkward moments (like the one time I was accidentally […]
Today is the Pride Parade in my hometown Columbus, Ohio. My yoga studio got creative with sidewalk art to celebrate. Happy Pride!

According to legend, their master wanted Mizzy for himself, so he arranged for Tunkey to be sold. Mizzy and Tunkey fled to avoid being separated but were eventually chased to the edge of a large steep […]
I do not travel much for work, so I was thrilled when I got the opportunity to travel to Raleigh to teach a Professional Scrum course. (Yep, that’s one of the things I do for a living. One day I’ll write about it because it’s pretty cool stuff.) I have a couple of friends in […]
I had been on the fence about visiting the Osa Peninsula. I had only 24 hours to visit, and I was not sure it was worth the drive. During my stay at Bodhi Surf and Yoga Camp, one of the owners Travis kept talking about how special Osa is and about some of the success […]
Sometimes you get lucky. After a week of surfing and yoga, I wanted to spend my last few days in Costa Rica doing nothing in a beautiful, comfortable place. I spent hours looking at rentals online trying to find the perfect one. There were many options to choose from on the southern Caribbean coast, and […]
