...GOOD FOOD!!! I've been having a look through my photos (trying to tidy them up!) and I came across the pictures from my trip to Laos last year. In particular these photos of our food caught my eye... and made me smile! They were taken in the Bamboo tree restaurant in Luang Prabang and I [...]

My 2018 Travels – A(nother) Review!
