by Janice Nigro I had a boyfriend in college who wasn’t much of a romantic. But he did leave me a surprise Valentine’s Day card once in a place where I wouldn’t have expected it.

A summary of Raja Ampat, Gangga Island, Kungkungan Bay, (Indonesia) and Moalboal, Dauin, and Bohol (Philippines). My view of underwater.
