The Maldives: where you basically feel like a celebrity, and keep asking yourself "HOW AM I EVEN HERE???"
On the map, the Republic of the Maldives is a tiny, nearly invisible, dot in the middle of the ocean. It's been high on my travel bucket list for a while now, and last week I was lucky enough to finally explore that tiny dot (read: paradise) on the other side of the world. I travelled with a dear friend, Aryan, whom we met in the Philippines, and have since been to five countries with (Indonesia, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, and now, the Maldives!), and Andrea (world travel-beer drinking-getting lost-partner in crime).
KANDOOMA ISLANDDDDDDDDDDD YOU GUYSSSSSSSS
After a brutal day (days) of travel: plane to Abu Dhabi, plane to Male, speed boat to Kandooma, we arrived at the heaven on earth, Holiday Inn Resort at Kandooma Island. Even from the view out the plane window, you can tell you are about to land somewhere special. I mean LOOK at those blues!
5. The sunsets. Just check them out:
All in all, the Maldives is everything everyone has been gagging over. Get your butt to this slice of heaven, and see for your self!
SHOUT OUT to Emirates for making two very tired travelers, very happy yet again! (I know, I would want to strangle us too)
