There were at least four temples, and just a few minutes ago, a bus of tourists was parked outside.

Beauty pinch-hitters when on the road


Whoever said beauty and travel can’t mix probably has a rough time knowing which products to pack for a trip. On occasion, I can be one of these people, as time constraints and poor packing skills will lead me to bring two to three extra pairs of shoes I won’t use and none of my [...]
