Hello! I’m Sharon Odegaard of Exploring Our World. I love combining a healthy curiosity for places with a love of history. That means travel! Whether it’s a faraway adventure or a nearby escape, travel can make our lives rich and enjoyable.
I’d love to inspire you find ways to fit more adventures in your life, too.
