I usually prefer an active holiday – cycling, trekking or similar – but every now and again I really love to spend a day (or three!) at the beach doing next to nothing. It’s not so much the sun I seek; I just find the sounds of the ocean amazing. Inspirational yet calming, romantic but with an undercurrent of danger and mystery – the ocean is a power that we’ll never fully understand.
I’m always drawn to the ocean, but beaches aren’t so much fun in the rainy season. Thankfully, as Asia is so big, there’s always somewhere to go that’s dry - so I thought I’d write a quick blog about how to avoid the wet and chase the sunshine.
