Gabi and Shanna From 27Travels Want to Help Queer Women See the World

What’s your favorite low-stakes treat after a productive day?

Gabi: If I’m having a stressful day, I’m about to get me some really good food. I’m about to go get a burrito and sit and enjoy my meal. That always makes me feel a little more zen inside. 

Shanna: Watching documentaries. I really love learning things. There’s this series on Netflix called Explained, and it explains different, random things. The last one we watched was about time, and the one before that was about dancing or something. I just love sitting down and watching a documentary and learning something new and being like, “Oh, my God, I never knew this before.” 

What’s your go-to thank-you gift?

Gabi: I like to make people things. So for me, a thank-you gift would be making them a drawing or sending them a handmade sticker. During COVID, I would just come up with new random projects all the time. That’s something I always do and drive Shanna crazy with. I was like, “I made everyone magnets. I’m mailing people rainbow magnets.” 

Shanna: We get a lot of stuff sent to us from brands, and sometimes we don’t use all of it. So a thank-you gift would be something from what we call our free bin. So like, “Oh, my God, thank you so much for watching our cat; here is this nice skin-care product.” 

What’s your typical email sign-off?

Shanna: I’m the one doing all the admin stuff because Gabi hates paperwork, which is fine because I actually love doing paperwork. I’m very organized. My sign-off is just, like, “best.” And then I sign both of our names even though it’s really just me answering an email.

If you weren’t doing your current job right now, what do you think you’d be doing?

Gabi: If we weren’t content creators right now, I’d probably be doing something eerily similar. I’ve always been an artist; I’m a professional photographer. I’m just an all-around artist. I feel like I’d be doing a lot more illustration stuff probably, but who knows? I’m the kind of person that needs to be in a creative field. That’s the only way I thrive. So I would just be doing something similar and creative.

Shanna: I used to be a competitive dancer, so I would love to say I would be a dancer somewhere, but I don’t know if that’s actually possible. Other than that, I probably would still be doing video and videography work, but probably just for a company versus doing it myself because that’s what I was doing before we did 27Travels.
