I hope you all have had a great week. The second week of classes moved by as quickly as the first at my work. Before I know it, Christmas break will be here! I am already ready for a vacation, so it is a good thing my trip to India is in 16 days! If you are new to the blog, I am going to Goa for a beach vacation. In October, I am headed to Thailand for TBEX Asia. TBEX is a travel blogging conference. Hopefully, I will learn more about how to be a better blogger and you will benefit! Okay, on to Friday Favorites.

I think my Australian friend called them King Twins. Even if I am traveling with good friends, I don’t want to sleep that close to you. If I am able, I push them apart.
