Awesome article, thank ya! I’ve been to a few of these places — spent a few months in Chiang Mai years ago. I have also spent time in Varkala Beach (Kerala, India), which was a great place to get some Auyrvedic spa treatments and get my head right from the intensity of Northern India. Once I chilled there for a while, I was ready to go north again!

Some of the most relaxing vacations mean finding a secluded spot where you can unplug from the stress of modern life. The Cook Islands is a secluded paradise with welcoming people, great dancers, drummers and singers, with strong Polynesian traditions and culture that make visiting the islands so memorable. The largest island and the home of the capital Avarua, is Rarotonga. Avarua is famous for its fascinating churches made of white coral, and don’t miss the islands Saturday market. Northeast of Rarotonga, visitors to Atiu may want to learn about the local “moonshine” known as tumunu at a local bush beer school. Neighboring Mitiaro stands in water 14,750 feet deep and has white coral streets lined with bright orange Pumarumaru trees. Although it is surrounded by coral reefs and is home to many underground caves and lakes, Ma’uke is known as “the garden island.” Finally, the second largest and oldest island is Mangaia, a beautiful location known for its fossilized coral, otherwise known as “makatea.”
Modern designs use silicone rubber in the mouthpiece and one-way clearing and float valves due to its resistance to degradation and its long service life. Natural rubber was formerly used, but slowly oxidizes and breaks down due to ultraviolet light exposure from the sun. It eventually loses its flexibility, becomes brittle and cracks, which can cause clearing valves to stick in the open or closed position, and float valves to leak due to a failure of the valve seat to seal. In even older designs, some snorkels were made with small "ping pong" balls in a cage mounted to the open end of the tube to prevent water ingress. These are no longer sold or recommended because they are unreliable and considered hazardous. Similarly, diving masks with a built-in snorkel are considered unsafe by scuba diving organizations such as PADI, BSAC because they can engender a false sense of security and can be difficult to clear if flooded.

The 1,971-foot (601 m) Ocean Beach Municipal Pier, built in 1966, is the longest concrete pier in the world and the second longest ocean pier in California.[28] [29] The pier supports a restaurant and bait shop (Ocean Beach Pier Cafe), which is located about 200yd/.03m down the pier. It is open 24 hours a day. A concrete walkway spans part of the length of the 1 mile (1.6 km) beach.
Wartime production during World War II required vast amounts of cotton, silk, nylon, wool, leather, and rubber. In 1942, the United States War Production Board issued Regulation L-85, cutting the use of natural fibers in clothing[46] and mandating a 10% reduction in the amount of fabric in women's beachwear.[47] To comply with the regulations, swimsuit manufacturers removed skirt panels and other attachments,[10] while increasing production of the two-piece swimsuit with bare midriffs.[48] At the same time, demand for all swimwear declined as there was not much interest in going to the beach, especially in Europe.[10]
Located in the world's largest free-standing dome, Tropical Islands features an indoor rain forest, spa facilities, and lagoon-style pool. Decorated with authentic palm trees and an artificial beach, it also features Germany's highest water slide. The outdoor AMAZONIA area also features Whitewater River, a unique lazy river pool. Free WiFi access is available in many spots in the resort.
Due to its controversial and revealing design, the bikini was accepted very slowly by the public. It gained increased exposure and acceptance as film stars like Brigitte Bardot, Raquel Welch, and Ursula Andress wore them and were photographed on public beaches and seen in film. In many countries the design was banned from beaches and other public places.[6]
A tropical sea, sandy beach and palm trees - this is written in a home page of Tropical Island. OK - there si no sea, just few pools with sweet water - 2 inside and L outside (in the winter time), wild river outside. In pools some atrrcations for small kids and some tobogans. most areas are tropical plants and trees, shops, automats, restaurans. Small part of area is wellness with some sanunas, possibility of massage(for extra payment of course). Sauna rituals are abut nothing . You will not receive towel , you must bring your own or pay for 3,5EUR to rent. You have to pay for lockable cupboard - capacity for 2-3 peoples (winter time). Sandy beach - sand was cold and wet. On the other side I must say that environment was excellent. Ok - my opinion - it wasd very nice to see this, but this is not aquapark , just overpriced botanic garden. My opinion is based on the experience of visiting in the winter.

In 1994, the bikini became the official uniform of women's Olympic beach volleyball.[175] In 1999, the International Volleyball Federation (FIVB) standardized beach volleyball uniforms, with the bikini becoming the required uniform for women.[176] That regulation bottom is called a "bun-hugger",[177] and players names are often written on the back of the bottom.[177]


There is a range of distinct bikini styles available — string bikinis, monokinis (topless or top and bottom connected), Trikinis (three pieces instead of two), tankinis (tank top, bikini bottom), camikinis (camisole top, bikini bottom), bandeaukini (bandeau top, bikini bottom), skirtini (bikini top, skirt bottom), "granny bikini" (bikini top, boy shorts bottom), hikinis (also hipkini), seekinis (transparent), minikinis, microkinis, miniminis, slingshots (or suspender bikinis), thong bottoms, tie-sides (a variety of string bikini) and teardrops.[23]

After a few minutes, the group decided to take a break and we walked south towards the pier. The surrounding area is filled with tourist shops, bars, tattoo parlors, and restaurants lined up and down the street adjacent to the beach. We continued towards the end of the street and climbed the steps leading to the pier. The pier was a massive boardwalk that led about a quarter of a mile out to the water. There were people fishing everywhere, some who have been there all day with several rods resting against the railing hoping to catch the big one. We spotted several artists selling their paintings as we walked by. Some of the pictures were abstract paintings while others were canvas paintings of the beach and various landmarks around town.
If you’re a newbie snorkeler, do not attempt to snorkel in a place that has a strong current. Instead, choose a place that has calm waters. Waves aren’t the best thing when snorkeling, specially when its your first time. It increases the effort you have to put in to get from one point to another. We suggest also going for a beach instead of jumping out of a boat as you can gradually swim towards a depth you are comfortable with.
Thanks for the great insight Kyle! I had a question for you, I have some friends going to Puerto Vallarta in January, the peak of high season. I’d like to join them, but get my own place. Do you recommend the ‘boots on ground’ method here as well? Wasn’t sure since it’s such a popular tourist spot and right now it’s tough to find affordable places online. Thanks for all the shared knowledge! -Matthew
2 of the best ways is enjoy the warm waters of the Kadavu Archipelago is to snorkel or scuba dive. If you’ve spent any time planning a trip to warmer climates, you’ve undoubtedly heard and read about snorkeling and scuba diving a lot — sometimes interchangeably. So what is the difference between snorkeling and scuba diving, and which activity is best for you?
Colorful bikinis in yellow, khaki, neon, red, and rainbow shades look sexy on the beach in sweltering summers. You can choose different patterns for the tops such as bandeau, halter neck, high neck, strappy, etc. Rasta, color block, Jamaican and Brazilian designs look beautiful on you. You can take a pick from the cute patterns meant for the newborns and juniors too.
For scuba diving, the primary piece of equipment you’ll need is a pressurized gas tank with a tube. This tank will be your air supply while you’re underwater. A wetsuit is also necessary to keep your body temperature regulated, even in tropical waters. Foot fins will help you through the water, propelling your movement. And lastly, if you are not an experienced diver, you’ll want a guide to accompany you. At Mai Dive, we make sure your scuba diving in Fiji experience is as safe and enjoyable as it is unforgettable.  We create daily dive plans tailored to the requirements of our diving and snorkeling guests that factor in your experience level, the tides, the water conditions and the weather.
One of our favorite things about two-piece womens bathing suits that you don’t get with one piece swimsuits is mixing and matching different colored swim suit tops and bottoms! Go bold in brightly colored womens swimsuits-- like a red bikini! Or keep it classic in a white bikini or a black bikini-- the perfect bathing suits for women that believe in less-is-more.
Out of every activity on offer in the Florida Keys, if you are fortunate enough to have the swim with dolphins experience, you are guaranteed to head back home with a bright smile emblazoned across your face, and a warm heart. Dolphins have long been a beloved symbol of Key West Dolphin tours, and around the world, they are known to be the clowns of the sea world.
You know those pictures you always see of tropical bungalows in the water? That’s Tahiti. The name has long been synonymous with tropical paradise. One of the biggest honeymoon destinations in the world, Tahiti offers pure paradise and a lot of romance. Here you can relax in the sun, scuba dive, enjoy fine seafood, and take a morning dip right from your bungalow.
Fins- We always recommend renting fins, especially when swimming long distances. I used to be a huge cheapskate when it came to renting fins but trust me, they do make a difference. Rent fins that are not too tight but also not too loose. When swimming with fins, be mindful that you don’t kick and knock over any corals. Check if your fins fit properly- ill fitting fins can make or break your snorkeling experience.

Located on the eastern coast of Malaysia, the Perhentians consist of two islands. Both are stunningly covered with a lot of palm trees, wide beaches, and crystal blue water. There’s not much to do here, and visitors typically lay on the beach all day, resting from last night’s drinking. It’s the perfect place to put up a hammock. A strong monsoon season limits when to go to between March and October. During the other times, it’s best to head to Thailand, where the weather is nicer.

Sounds like you’ve had some interesting adventures! If you’re looking for a mindful community, I would recommend somewhere away from the tourist hot spots in Bali or if you want to get away from the drunken backpackers and one week tourist hordes entirely, the nearby island of Lombok is absolutely surreal in it’s beauty but you might find getting reliable Internet difficult there.
If your looking to step aboard something that is more modern, try Catamaran Reef Snorkel. On this tour, you get to sail on a luxurious 68 foot sailing catamaran, and get to explore the living coral reef’s ecosystem in style. If you are looking for a shorter snorkeling trip, this is the one for you, lasting only three and a half hours, and providing a full hour of snorkeling and the rest of it traveling by wind power.

Bikini waxing is the epilation of pubic hair beyond the bikini line by use of waxing. The bikini line delineates the part of a woman's pubic area to be covered by the bottom part of a bikini, which means any pubic hair visible beyond the boundaries of a swimsuit.[244] Visible pubic hair is widely culturally disapproved, considered to be embarrassing, and often removed.[244]

Northern California beaches. They tend to be cold and windy, and Ocean Beach is no exception. There are those glorious warm days that happen a few times per year in the Fall. If you choose this location for a photo shoot make sure that you wear layers at this location. And arm yourself with hair ties and clips, because it can get windy.  Take it from me, a family photographer (K. Sienk Photography)!

Thanks for the fascinating article. I’m currently based out of Vancouver myself (but soon back to Toronto). I’m enthralled by the idea of taking my show on the road somewhere cheap and warm next winter. I’m a planner, though, but it seems like (from both your comments and my failed attempts thus far) the best way to get something like this is to show up somewhere and then go from there; whenever I’ve looked at somewhere like AirBNB, it seems like everything is $50/night and upwards (with the exception of some stuff I’ve found in Goa).
Nearly twice the size of all the other Hawaiian islands combined, the snorkeling on Big Island is fantastic, especially at Honaunau Bay, also known as The City of Refuge, with an historic backdrop to boot. Pu'uhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park has smooth lava rock flats to help you ease effortlessly from shore to sea into year-round crystal-clear water, and you'll find healthy coral gardens teeming with tropical fish, moray eels, and even turtles in shallow depths to the right. Spinner dolphins frequent deeper waters to the left.
There are unique shops and fresh restaurants lining the streets, with everything from modern clothes to vintage, you can grab a comedy show, a concert or DJ, cafes to brew pubs, bars, rent a surfboard or bicycle,  grab a smoothie, even places that will make a meal for fido so he can dine with you - TOO COOL!  Just about every place in OB has a dog friendly area so bring him along too.

Good luck! If you want to be surrounded by more tech people and other coders to learn from, Chang Mai would be a lot better for that. But there’s no beach there. Any more questions feel free to email me. I would also recommend joining a digital nomad mastermind like Dynamite Circle or Digital Nomad Academy. That way you can make connections and meet other people who are doing similar Internet-related things in Thailand and SE Asia.


NO FOGGING OR FILLING UP: No Mask is completely fog proof, warm body heat and colder water temperature can create fogging in any mask. We have included a premium anti fog spray Fog-X for use during these conditions. Our fog resistant design pushes air away from your face, leaving you with a clear view of the wildlife.

thailand in phuket maybe got around 20m but very urban area …..to teach sax you basically going to have to set up your own little teaching studio long term and your internet requirements are really going to limit you to very specific larger urban islands… believe me I’ve been learning about this the hardway , like I said my wife needs half way decent internet to work , we moving to a house in the jungle on Morro de Sao paulo in Brazil….you can get internet there , but try pinning down the one install guy on the island who has to shlepp down there to install it…..and my wife’s Brazilian so theres no communication barrier….if you can’t communicate in these places with such specific needs you really going to get fustrated quick. Make sure to bring at least two months cash to live off (at least) til you get everything sorted out


Mazunte, Zipolite and Puerto Escondido are the three coolest beach towns I’ve found in Mexico. The Oaxacan Coast (pronounced wa-hah-kah) has a peaceful tropical ambiance, largely because it’s relatively off-the-beaten-track location far from high-traffic international destinations like Cancun or Puerto Vallarta. The nearby ecotourism hotspot Huatulco has a big airport but nothing like the other major resorts in Mexico.

The fitness boom of the 1980s led to one of the biggest leaps in the evolution of the bikini. According to Mills, "The leg line became superhigh, the front was superlow, and the straps were superthin."[211] Women's magazines used terms like "Bikini Belly",[212] and workout programs were launched to develop a "bikini-worthy body".[213] The tiny "fitness-bikinis" made of lycra were launched to cater to this hardbodied ideal.[214] Movies like Blue Crush and TV reality shows like Surf Girls merged the concepts of bikini models and athletes together, further accentuating the toned body ideal.[215] Some women, motivated by yearly Spring Break festivities that mark the start of the bikini season in North America,[216] engage in eating disorders in an attempt to achieve the ideal bikini body.[215]

Situated in a huge hangar originally intended for the construction of cargo airships (though the venture went bust before any living airship made it out of the hangar), Tropical Islands is just off the Berlin-Prague highway, about 60 kilometers (37 miles) southeast of Berlin, in the middle of a dark wood in Brandenburg. A Malaysian investor realized the potential of the abandoned structure and brought the jungle of his home country to Germany. I remember when Tropical Islands was under construction: I was living in Berlin at that time and visited the site a couple of times.
Among the stunning islands of Southern Thailand, Phuket is the largest, and arguably the most popular. Situated on the Andaman Sea, Phuket’s beaches are revered and numerous, including the crystal clear waters of Surin Beach, and the magical sunsets of LaemPhromthep Viewpoint nearLaem Singh Beach. On Phuket, Chinese influences are everywhere from restaurants to shrines. There is even an annual Chinese Vegetarian Festival. Visitors will be in awe of famous James Bond Island in PhangNga Bay, the vibrant Bangla Road nightlife, and the glittering pagodas of WatChalong temple. To understand the influence of China on the island, travelers will want to visit Phuket Thaihua Museum.

Experience the stunning underwater world of diving in Key West. The blue waters surrounding the Southernmost City offer world-class wreck diving. On May 27, 2009, the U.S.N.S. Gen. Hoyt S. Vandenberg intentionally sunk to create an artificial reef in 140 feet of water, seven miles off Key West. The Vandenberg is the second largest ship purposely sunk as an artificial reef. It is now the southern anchor of the Florida Keys Shipwreck Trail. Learn more about diving the Vandenberg!

Goa is a state in India with some of the best beaches in the world. India is a place that you either love or hate, there is no in-between. Stepping off an international flight in a big Indian city is probably the most intense “culture shock” you will experience anywhere in the world. But if you spend enough time exploring India, you learn to love its ancient culture and the unique charm of the birthplace of so many of the world’s greatest religions.

According to figures published by the company, Tropical Islands has spent EUR 23 million on further development and expansion work. The original total investment sum announced was EUR 75 million, including a EUR 17 million subsidy from the federal state of Brandenburg. The purpose of the subsidy for the development work was to preserve the 501 jobs.
We recommend you go from a beach your first time, not a boat. Jumping off a boat into deep water your first time can be daunting. Many first timers naturally are afraid that they will not float easily. Combine that fear with unease about breathing through a snorkel and using a mask, and pretty quickly it becomes a less fun first experience. This visitor story is why we suggest not going from a boat for your first experience.
When it comes to shopping in OB, don't miss The Black, a smoke shop that is also a neighborhood institution. Kind of a head shop/novelty/record store, The Black is like going back in time to the hippie decade. Ocean Beach Antique Mall on Newport Avenue is where to go for unique vintage finds and home goods. Sunshine Daydreams is a little boho-chic clothing boutique, and the Black Bead is a mecca for jewelry hobbyists.

Heading out for a day in the sun? We’re right there with you. We have a fantastic collection of this summer’s two-piece swimsuit styles. Our women’s two-piece bathing suits and bikinis are unforgettable, from ruffle and mid rise bikinis to wrapped bikini tops and high-waisted bikini bottoms. Before you head to the boardwalk, throw on a pretty beach cover-up to keep you protected from the sun.

Bali is like Hawaii minus the high price tag and the strip malls but major tourist spots like Kuta and Seminyak are regularly over-run by marauding bands of drunken tourists in high season. With a little exploration, you will find all kinds of hidden gems that are unlike anywhere else such as Pura Ulun Danu Bratan, Candi Dasa and Sanur (or take a boat to the less developed paradise Lombok).

I lived for a month one winter at Las Piramides in the mellow village of San Marcos de la Laguna. At this incredible spiritual retreat, you get to live in your own glass-tipped pyramid in the jungle. They offer excellent programs in yoga and meditation that start with each full moon and run for the entire lunar month. The spectacular main pyramid where classes are held is along the beautiful shore of the lake.
Captain Hook’s regularly visits three Sanctuary Preservation Areas (SPA’s): Sombrero Reef, Coffin’s Patch and Looe Key Reef. They are a part of the Florida Keys Marine Sanctuary, the third largest living coral barrier reef system in the world. These are biologically important areas that help sustain critical marine habitats and species. These locations offer beautiful coral reef formations and a diversity of fish.

Have just discovered your blog today and love it! I am a student from NZ and want to travel to somewhere fantastic next year for a few weeks to get away from the hussle and bussle of study and work. Originally thought Thailand would be fantastic, and I see you agree with me here so great! But I also did not realise Bali was also so cheap. For a first trip overseas for a poor student (apart from Aus), where would you recommend? Bali or Thailand?

In May 1946, fashion designer Jacques Heim from Paris released a two-piece swimsuit design that he named the Atome.[3] Like swimsuits of the era, it covered the wearer's navel, and it failed to attract much attention. Clothing designer Louis Réard introduced his new, smaller design in July.[4] He named the swimsuit after the Bikini Atoll, where the first public test of a nuclear bomb had taken place only four days before. His skimpy design was risque, exposing the wearer's navel and much of her buttocks. No runway model would wear it, so he hired a nude dancer from the Casino de Paris to model it at a review of swimsuit fashions.[5]
