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!

Sweet Home Springfield

One of the "jobs" of the Hamilton Island Caretaker is not only to write blogs about the island but also to create video and photo blogs. (I use the word job in quotations up there because this opportunity on Hamilton Island seems more like a fun time and a great reason to learn to do new things. For example, today I learned how to upload videos to my blog!)

I happen to love making photo movies. Here is one I made after I went to visit my best friend in her home town. She is from Springfield Ontario. "Small" is a generous term to use when describing Springfield. (Just so you get an idea about how small it really is...we had to go to Aylmer to find a traffic light).

I hope you enjoy the movie...and come back soon to see the one I made about my trip to Las Vegas, I'll be adding it soon, (now that I know how to put my videos on Blogger!)
