Partaking of local dishes is something which I always look forward to when traveling and my recent trip to Phu Quoc, Vietnam was no exception. I have always loved Vietnamese cuisine, it is one of my favorites and I always look forward to going to […]
A broken heart is never a welcome condition when travelling but when your heart is in pieces and your flight is booked and hotel accommodations paid for, all you can do is dance to the music.
