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!
Last year I finally made it to Austin, a city often compared to my favorite quirky city. While I don’t think the cities are that similar beyond the surface, I do think Austin has its own quirky vibe, good food, and an appreciation for craft beer. I enjoyed my stay in Austin and am excited […]

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 […]

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 […]
My friends, my co-workers, and anyone who has spent a few days at the same hostel will probably tell you I am a strange eater. That is true if you think eating healthy and eating the same meals frequently is strange. Over a year ago, I discovered Simple Green Smoothies, and I have one nearly […]
Costa Ballena is a natural wonder. It means “Whale Coast” in Spanish. When I saw the aerial photos of the coastline shaped exactly like a whale’s tail, I knew I had to see it in person. From the surf and yoga camp, it was a 15-minute walk to the entrance of Marino Ballena National Park. […]
