About Me

I'm a 22 year old History graduate who loves to travel, run and write. Aside from family travels as a kid, I've travelled to Australia, Canada, USA, Germany and Iceland in the past 4 years, mainly by myself. I enjoy sharing intimate travel experiences on my blog: soleseeking

I studied in London for the past 3 years, exploring scenic places off the tourist-path and discovering some of the coolest bars playing older, non-mainstream music.

Shannon's Activity

ALondon: Favorite Indian restaurant in London?

Brick Lane​ is the famous road full of Indian restaurants. They are often off-license so you need to bring your own alcohol (which will save you money!) Go here and loads of reps will be giving you offers, trying to convince you to eat at their restaurant. If... See More

QGeneva: Best things to see and do in and around Geneva?

I'm going to be au pairing in Switzerland for a couple of months, close to Geneva. I'd appreciate any recommendations on places to see and things to do both in the daytime and evening, ideally that won't require having to spend loads. Relevant blog posts are... See More

AWhat tourist traps around the world are worth the visit?

Old Faithful​ in Yellowstone is ridiculously busy, but in a way that makes it nice. Everyone is sitting in anticipation, chatting to fellow tourists, snacking out of picnic bags as if they're at the movies. Then when the geyser rises there is an... See More

AMost inspiring travel quotes?

In Keflavik airport, Iceland, there is a quote that says 'A traveller carries no bigger weight than wisdom'. I thought that was a fitting summary of how much life experience people can gain from travelling. See More

ABest tips for budget traveler? Best tips for traveling light?

Wear your heaviest clothes/shoes on the flight. Pack loose-fitting light-fabric tops to reduce the likelihood of them becoming too sweaty to wear again! Try to bring only two pairs of shoes, and wear loose beach/swimming shorts for other activities/as underwear. Pop a spare... See More

ALondon: Best place to eat a typically English breakfast in London ?

I'd recommend the Breakfast Club! There are locations in Angel (The Breakfast Club​), Oxford Street (The Breakfast Club​​​) and Liverpool Street (The Breakfast Club​). It's best to get there quite early... See More

AWhat's a song that makes you want to pick up and travel?

This song: I first heard it in Iceland and it's really cheerful and catchy - I can imagine listening to it whilst hiking a mountain or riding a bus somewhere. And the foreign language makes it feel like you really... See More

AAustralia: 1 Month vacation: Australia or Australia/NewZealand ???

The two countries are quite different, so I'd do both if possible. The east coast of Oz has some great beaches and makes a fun road trip, but it is very touristy (esp. Brisbane​/Gold Coast) although areas like Dorrigo National... See More

ALondon: Typical British food

I'd recommend going to a pub, such as this one:  to sample some British pies! See More

ALondon: Is New Years in London pleasant?

Hi Maria, The New Year fireworks in London are very popular, however this means that those wishing to see them have to arrive very very early (around 3 or 4 hours prior) in order to get a decent view. And yes, it is very possible that the weather will be raining...I also... See More
