Despite heading to bed fairly late on my first night in the Maldives, the jet lag got the better of me and fight it as I tried, I just couldn’t go back to sleep and so I decided to head out on my bicycle to watch the sunrise.  I literally jumped out of bed, in my PJs, … Continue Reading

The best part about doing multi-island stays in the Maldives is definitely the excitement of knowing you have another amazing place ahead of you after leaving your previous (equally beautiful) island home. No holiday blues here (something everyone who’s ever been on holidays anywhere amazing can definitely relate to). Then there’s the fact that changing islands … Continue Reading

The next morning at Velassaru proved that the sunshine was indeed here to stay (it’d rained on and off for the first couple of days when we arrived to the Maldives – mostly in the evenings and usually for like 30 mins to an hour but still… 🙂 ). Thankfully this morning, my only plans … Continue Reading

The next morning at the Angsana Velavaru, after our fairly relaxed day of arrival into the Maldives – I had two main things planned for the day – snorkelling (the Maldives is, as you already know, amazing for this) and indulging in the spa… actually, make that 3 things – I also planned on getting … Continue Reading

This was one thing I was soooo looking forward to long before we arrived in the Maldives! Swimming with Manta Rays in the wild is such an amazing experience and I’d seen so many jealousy-inducing photos and videos before we returned to the Maldives so when we arrived in the Maafushivaru Maldives Resort, an island that’s … Continue Reading

Now where was I? Oh yes, just as the sun was setting, we were off to find our new home in the Maldives – The Angsana Ihuru. Little did we know what they had in store for us… Our excitement meant that we could barely sit down in the boat as we edge close and closer … Continue Reading

Kuramathi is one of the bigger islands in the Maldives. It’s long enough that you would probably rather hop aboard one of the many golf buggies zipping through the island than attempt to walk the length of it. The surprising thing here however was the fact that, despite its relative size, it still manages to … Continue Reading

I have such a huge soft spot for this amazing island. As you already know, the islands in the Maldives are pretty amazing and so staying somewhere beautiful almost feels like the norm yet this one managed to stand out even more so. I don’t know if it’s because this was the last island we … Continue Reading

Seeing those dolphins and manta rays in the wild was absolutely incredible and the entire time, I totally forgot that I’d had very little sleep the night before (on account of me refusing to go to bed early and having to wave up very early the next day for the boat ride) – thanks in … Continue Reading

Despite having an amazing time just relaxing on the most amazing white sandy beach, we very eagerly hurried away from the beach and headed straight for the dock at the Angsana Ihuru Maldives. Why? Well we had a sunset cruise booked and this was definitely one I’d been looking forward to and had no plans to … Continue Reading

The Maldives are the epitome of island paradise and the dream destination of pretty much everyone you ask – seriously, ask anyone around you right now if they’d want to visit the Maldives. 🙂 These pristine, beautiful islands in the Indian Ocean are a haven of natural beauty and one of those places that definitely … Continue Reading

It is hard to relax on the beach when there’s so much amazing stuff to see around you and so, despite enjoying the  down time chilling with cocktails by the beach, we decided we had to go snorkelling.   We’d been told so much about the amazing house reef here and knew we had to … Continue Reading

If you’ve been on our Instagram, Facebook or Twitter, you’ll probably have been inundated with so many photos from the Maldives… If you haven’t well this post is for you – we’re in the Maldives as it’s as beautiful as they all said it would be! (Oh, and we’re also on Snapchat with username “HandLuggageOnly”) … Continue Reading
