As I lost myself in the colorful aisles, I came across a modest paperback: Moonlight in Odessa by Janet Skeslian Charles.

Bucharest is Fabulous and Fun premium
There are a number of countries where it’s recommended to arrive in the capital city and then get out as soon as possible. The Philippines? Yeah, I’d get on board with that.

The wines here are extraordinary, shockingly affordable, and they have tastes that I don’t experience in any other country. I don’t know what it is about South African wines. I’m more of a red […]
