About Me

My photo
I'm Shannon and I am applying for THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD. I am an outgoing, self-motivated, funny girl who loves to travel. After graduating from the University of Toronto with a degree in Theatre and English, I lived in Australia for one year. During that time I spent 6 months living in the Northern Territory; three months in the mining town of Nhulunbuy on the Gulf of Carpenteria, one month in Darwin and two months in Alice Springs. I did spend some time in Queensland, I LOVED Townsville and Rockhampton and Great Kepple Island. I had the opportunity to dive the Great Barrier Reef and I learned to surf. I sailed the Whitsunday Islands and am KEENLY aware of what I will be missing out on if I don't get to experience Hamilton Island for myself. On this blog I will be writing about me, my past travel experiences and hopefully showing everyone why I am the best candidate for THE BEST JOB IN THE WORLD! If you would like to email me you can reach me at shannontheislandgirl@rogers.com If it takes me some time to respond to your email, it's just because I'm busy packing my bags! See you on the island!

Learning about Picasa

I have just installed Google's Picasa photo software on my computer. For numerous reasons, but also because it makes it easier to upload photos to this Google hosted blog. I am quite impressed with the software. It's easy to use and you can click on a photo and they choose "blog this". I love it. Since I am playing around with the software, here is a photo of my favourite part of Vegas:

I just loved the fountains at The Bellagio. The creativity and attention to detail that goes in to making the fountains actually dance to all of those different songs, (from classical to rock), was just amazing. I seriously couldn't get enough. I have to admit, I did sneak out of dinner at Olives to catch the last "dance" of the night. Rude? Perhaps...But totally worth it!
