...A CUPPA! I do love a cup of tea, I have English Breakfast in the morning and then on the weekends, when I can sit back and enjoy a cuppa in the afternoon, my tea of choice is a nice Earl Grey. Could I be more British??!! I was sitting enjoying one of these the… Continue reading Because I Love…
Laos had been on the hit list for quite a while. This time, we thought, this time. We had initially wanted to travel to the south, to see Wat Phou and the 4000 islands.

Well, I am very pleased to announce that I have reached my five month blogiversary today! I can't believe it, how time flies! As it's also Christmas it seems like a good time for a little reflection.
