Via Trara Genoino, 27, 84017 Positano SA, Italy

Ma'an Governorate, Jordan

Pasir Bogak, 32300 Pulau Pangkor, Negeri Perak, Malaysia
What Pasir Bogak lacks in charm it more than makes up for in "dear sweet Jesus!" sunset moments. I present Exhibit A, your honor. Three nights in a row the sun danced her fiery dance over the ocean’s lapping waves. Three nights in a row we chilled...
