The other day I posted about nudity while cruising, and being aware of and respecting the cultural differences of certain islands. The post gained a number of comments and in addition to that, I saw from our stats page that the link to the post was also shared on a couple of different forums. For the record, please feel free to post the link to our website on any related forums if you feel that the topic of a post fits a discussion there. Anyway, speaking of nudity/clothing and cultural differences, how’s this for an opposite approach, the Facekini, a fashion item now popular in China. I wonder what one of these would look like when worn along with a Conch Republic Bikini?
