UK, Dublin, and Numbers

IRELAND | Tue, 16 Feb 2016 | By wanderlustgail | Views [439]

SRI LANKA | Wed, 30 Sep 2015 | By lindsaylauren | Views [760]

When I sat down to write this, I had a cup of tea next to me. When I sat down to finish it, I had another cup of tea. A third cup will keep me company as I edit the photos. Tea is my ritual, my companion, my main source of caffeine. For some reason, ... Read more >
