There was this travel deal that made another dream of mine come true. A travel like kissing goodbye hell stresses and strains because I'm going to a paradise and rejoice to no end.
It started with just a dream and I always remember how stepping off the plane made me overly ecstatic thinking back in time when I posted in fb "I'm going to Maldives, with or without money". Trust me, heavens hear us everyday!
Our Day 1 was a sort of adventure. We were supposed to stay in a budget hotel the entire trip but we planned of spending the extra booking an overnight stay in an island hotel for a little indulgence and to really get to see how we pictured Maldives to be. To make the most out of our Day 1, we chose an all-day affair getting to an inhabited island via a public ferry and this was an absolute delight. A great taste and even insight into local Maldivians life.
Now imagine sitting by the pristine beach almost all day and watching for that magical moment of the setting sun. What a bliss!
The next morning, with pure excitement, we were shuttled on a speed boat that was going to take us to the Fihalhohi island we prior booked. I remember every awe and excitement I had looking at the divine ocean and passing by over-water villas island after island. It wasn't long before we arrived and whisked off to a serene island in the middle of divine clear ocean. Definitely Maldives of my dream this time.
.The island was so stunning we could hardly articulate but just had some 'pinch me' moments before we got the adrenaline rush of taking photos after photos non-stop.
And pictorial, obviously, was how we kicked off Day 2.
Talk about lazing over-water bungalow watching the sun go down...
I take my hats off to this island of pure majesty.
Trust me, when you look at the photos, I need not say.
