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 http://www.galleryburguieres.com/about.html and visit her gallery, located at 736 Royal Street, the next time you are in The Big Easy.
