Red

I'm Red and I like to write and I take a few great pictures. A constant learner caught in wanderlust, I'm always looking for new ideas, destination or adventure!

Now, they say if you don’t have anything good to say, don’t say anything at all. So I don’t know how to talk about this one. To begin with, I’m not a germophobe but I developed hygiene concerns when I saw him take the shawarma of the small grill with his fingers, which he had just used to touch is phone while taking a call.

Discovering Great Britain – Bath City Center

This city is a popular tourist destination because, as the name implies, the city is known for its hot springs and Roman-built baths.
