Blogger of the Month
Shannon O’Donnell from A Little Adrift
In 2008, Shannon left her career as an actor in LA to travel solo round the world; finding volunteering opportunities and trying delicious vegetarian eats every step of the way.

- She posts screen-lickable food photos and recipes
- She tells a candid personal story
- And she shows another side to destinations
