The Bangkok Traffic Story

The news about the death of the highly revered King Bhumibol Adulyadej of Thailand swept across the world. As a sign of respect, the entire nation of Thailand was in a state of mourning. The famous night clubs and entertainment strips were closed, and almost all the locals wore black.

Expectation vs. Reality: Your Photo vs. Your Friend's Photo

Almost everyone is into photography. With so many gadgets to choose from, capturing and sharing precious moments has never been that hard.

Your Journey To Israel And Everything In Between

Israel as a country holds significant cultural and historic importance for many individuals all over the world, and it successfully blends old customs with new ones. The Middle East boasts some of the warmest temperatures and climate in the world, so be prepared for soaring heats and to pack your bags appropriately.
