  • Description

    Hi I'm Shannon, a 24yr old from Australia.

    I’ve been travelling for over two years, after trying out being a corporate accountant for about 3yrs and acknowledging that I wanted more from life.
    My favourite way of travelling is to experience life from a locals perspective and take my time to understand the culture, the way of life and the incredible beauty that surrounds me.
    Workaway is the perfect solution for me!

    In 2019 I spent about six months travelling doing work trades and met so many incredible souls and had so many beautiful experiences.
    I'm very interested in sustainability, community living, permaculture, construction, health and wellness, spirituality and gardening.

    I'm adventurous, hard working easy going, open-minded and love learning new things!
    I love hiking, exploring the outdoors, playing guitar, reading, gardening, cooking, practising Reiki, meditation& consciousness and surfing.

    This quote really resonates with me:

    Grateful for everywhere i've been,
    Everywhere i've yet to be,
    For the journey on the road less travelled,
    While marching to the beat of different drum.
    Henry David Thoreau
