Bathrooms!  (Image by Not Only White)  Now OBVIOUSLY monochrome bathrooms are where it's at, for us that really goes without saying.

The Case for Armchair Travel

There are a number of things about myself I am reluctant to admit. Mostly things I don't like, but feel I ought to. Top of this list is Travel, yes travel with a capital T.
