First blog post

Hi!  I’m Shannon and I welcome you to my travel blog.  This is my first venture into online blogging, so please be kind.  A little about me.  I’ve been a social worker, a career counselor, a PR/Communications professional and now I’m a transplant nurse.  I share a house with an adorable papillon, Valentino, and two cats, Izzy (who is feral and even after 10 years of co-habitation, fears that I will eat him some day) and Louis (mischievous and the life of the party).  In my spare time, I love to travel, read, write and take photos.  Along the way, I’ve met some interesting people and heard some great stories.  I started this blog to share the stories and photos of the places I’ve visited and the people I’ve met.  I hope you enjoy it.

The image I have chosen is called Alice and the Cheshire Cat  and is a piece from Ally Burguieres, an artist, designer and inventor in popular and conceptual pieces located in New Orleans. I wandered into her gallery on Royal Street and fell in love with her work. Please check out her work at and visit her gallery, located at 736 Royal Street, the next time you are in The Big Easy.
