who wants to go to the seaside

during semana santa I got to spend a few days on the beach! the lago nicaragua is a huge lake with a volcanic island in the middle, where life is quiet and seems to be uneventful, making it a perfect get-away. the scenery is very beautiful and I enjoyed a couple of relaxed days in great…

"you smell of Baliness"
