In December, with all the holidays roaming around, it’s hard not to think about getting away from the hustle and bustle of work. We all just want to relax and not think about anything else - for once we actually want to have the luxury of being bored!
And what better way to relax, unwind, and not care about anything than being enveloped by fine grains of sand and the cool blue water of the Earth? We don’t have to travel far, though, to vacation at a beach. We have ones here in Southeast Asia!
