Battle of the Travel Wi-Fis

There are many disadvantages to working at home. But one of the many advantages is the luxury of bringing work wherever I go.

One day was not enough, and I can walk around it every day, if only to find my inner peace. Continue reading “One Day Guide at the Angkor Archaeological Park”
