Hi, I'm Shanna.
I'm a writer & curiosity enthusiast from California who moved to Portugal in 2018.
You might know me from my Instagram account a_vegan_in_portugal
or my So You Want to Move to Portugal sessions (on hiatus for summer 2022).
I'm learning to navigate my new home, bumbling along with the language, oh, and eating simple, delicious vegan food (+ drinking coffee!) in a country that's big on meat and seafood.
I ask big questions and explore thoughtful topics, often about living simply, creatively, and intentionally.
Join me by signing up for life: examined
and buy me a coffee if you feel moved to do so. Thank you!
