Travel Report: Apsara Greenland Boutique, Siem Reap.

Apsara Greenland Boutique, Siem Reap. It’s weird to think that just a few months ago Sladja and I were in crisis. All around us people were fleeing, flights were getting cancelled and borders closing. Moreover, one of us had a cough and wasn’t feeling so great. It was all quite stressful.
