Hey everybody, Santa here... well kinda. My name is Shannon (and yes, I'm a dude) and I'm a professional Santa Claus. When I'm not busy with the kiddos I do remodeling on our 1930's house and spend as much time as possible RV traveling. We call our motorhome "the Villa" (it's a good story for another time) and so I thought if I was going to do a blog about our travels "Santa's Villa" would be a decent title, so here we are. I travel with my wife, Mary, and our two dachshunds, Ashford and Mia. We have been RVing as a couple since 2003, though my wife grew up "real camping" and my family always had some kind of RV; be it a truck camper, a Westfalia, a travel trailer or a small C.
