The Scent of Thailand – Life lately… May.

I used to write monthly recaps. And then I stopped. Maybe because I thought nobody was interested or maybe because life happened and sometimes not much to write home about at all happened. I don't even know. But I am craving a dear diary moment so with that I will...

Stellenbosch – Keep Calm and Drink Wine.
