Lisa and Alex on Koh Samui

Many thanks to Alex Jimenez for interviewing me for her site, Travel Fashion Girl, which is full of fantastic information from packing lists for every style of travel, to travel fashion tips as wells as do’s and don’ts! Her site is a Traveler’s Guide to Practical and Stylish Travel Gear.
