As someone who was born and raised on islands I love everything about island culture. The weather, the outdoor adventure, the ocean, the food, and the laidback lifestyle which usually goes hand in hand with being around the coast.
Save Place
Koror, Palau
Over 10,000 years ago, as the last ice age ended, sea levels rose and filled depressions in Palau’s limestone islands, which became inland marine lakes. There are around seventy of these lakes in Palau, defined by their salinity, and also their...
