It seems that the time flies too fast and that we get caught up in the swiftness of the current of life and sometimes we need to just take a moment to …breathe… inhale…exhale…repeat slowly.

If traditional… Continue reading Three desserts for breakfast? Why not?

Back to Beautiful Bangkok….

Ahhh... the time we had with great people, great food and wonderful travels! But, all good things must be remembered and we have the pictures to prove it.

We really enjoyed our time together with… Continue reading Back to Beautiful Bangkok….
