I’m looking to leave someone else. Someone you may not know about.

She’s extremely smart, funny, reliable, and keeps me up to date with all the latest trends. And although she’s always by my sid...

And the fact that they can now be split into two pieces only doubles your chances of losing one or both of them.

One man in particular is responsible for the majority of the coverage in Thailand. His name is Panupong Luangsa-ard and he's a Thai triathlete. Google estimates that Luangsa-ard walked nearly 500 kilometers (that's over 300 miles). Google Asia Pacific Naturally, he went through num...
