Calvert Beach-Long Beach vs Assateague Island

Whenever you’ve visited the beach, either alone or with a group of friends and family, did it make you want to come back soon? What made the beach so exciting and special for you?

Naxos in November: Visiting Naxos in the Off Season

In most areas of the world, autumn signals the return of morning frost, layered clothing, and the old, familiar roar of hundreds of leaf-blowers awakening from their summer slumber.
