Alisha Explores Vientiane

This month, Fiance and I went to a new country and new city: Vientiane, Laos. Why Laos? Why Vientiane? Well, pretty easy answer. We had gone to most of South East Asia and wanted to go somewhere new. So Laos seemed like something good. As well, Vientiane was a very short and cheap flight from Shanghai. So, we booked it while in a brewery in … Continue reading Alisha Explores Vientiane

Alisha Explores Singapore

The Merlion City Fiance and I decided to head out to Singapore for a short weekend trip.
