Sharky Awards: People
What makes a person Sharky?
People who win a Sharky Award perform an amazing service for travelers. We raise a fin to the people who make us emote at the heart embellished in our latte foam, who make Atlas look like a slacker, who act as our guide on a life-changing experience, and who make us seriously consider leaving our lives behind to become permanent tourists.
