The Path from Fitness Whiffler to Warrior by Shannon

  • Blog
My blog inspiration often begins with perusing the fitness articles I’ve sent myself over the past month. Not surprisingly, only a few of the multitude ever make the share-worthy cut. Amidst deleting nonessential emails, my “learn a new word” email caught my eye: Whiffler, a noun meaning undependable, ineffective, evasive. As a fitness professional, my brain ego-puffed a categorization of myself as a non-whiffler. At least as far as exercise goes.

  • Blog
Is Travel a Right or a Privilege for 2022 & beyond? This past year has been a trial in patience for the travel industry & a financial crippling moment for many.

Port communities remembering a more charmed area prior to the arrival of the mega cruise ships are reconsidering their...

While we all hope for a vaccine, 2021 will still be a year of masks & social distancing. For the intrepid traveler this translates into more private types of vacations. Villa rentals, private...
