Burot Beach in Postcards

I think it was second week of February when I found myself constantly browsing Maldives photos, Maldives volunteering jobs, Maldives couchsurfing, etc. in the internet. But reality slaps that I can’t just teleport to that pristine island right there and then.

I’m quite sulky with mother nature because this is the second time I hit the beach without the sun. No sun means gloomy skies and bye dramatic sunsets. Boooo!
