This is how we remember Boipeba

Cobblestones, sand and perfection
Glad you got those fabulous rewards of a perfect empty beach, warm water and a yummy dinner after all that work! What a great trip to do with your dad! Hope the next stretch is easier.

know you on the cover of Ielts speaking book
It may sound a little bit crazy. I am from Fujian. One of my colleagues showed me a picture of you on Ielts book. You look so attractive. My colleague (Mac) said he knows you. I am an Ielts teacher too. I am planning to buy the book. I read your blog. I love travel too. I traveled to Europe alone by myself two years ago. Best wishes for your relationship and your life. I will keep an eye on your Blog.
