The second part of our recent trip to the Maldives is here!!! 🙂 This time we changed home from this one to the Velassaru Maldives. There’s something so exciting about arriving at a new island in the Maldives. New restaurants to discover (i.e. new attempts to try to eat my weight in delicious foods), new … Continue Reading

The Maldives is one of the most famous and one of the most beautiful travel destinations in the world.

Now, as the Kurumba has a lot of choice on offer and we had very limited time to sample all the choices, we had a greedy modern take on dinner. How? By having starters in one restaurant, mains from another and dessert for a third! Even with that though (and lunch from an entirely different … Continue Reading

Heads up – this is one huge post so this is probably the time to make yourself a huge mug pot of tea (or wine – we won’t judge) and try to find those biscuits you pretend you don’t know where you stashed them but we all know has been stowed for a ‘rainy day’ … 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

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

On our final day at the Dusit Thani Maldives, we decided to make the most of the infinity pool and so we got up bright and early! Had breakfast and headed down to the pool. The thing is, the snorkelling here is so great that the infinity pool had kinda been overlooked from our end … Continue Reading

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, with … Continue Reading

After a few days in Madrid (and a quick stopover for a few hours back at home in London), we finally headed out to the Maldives! I can’t even pretend! I’d been looking forward to this trip for quite a while so I was justifiably excited when it finally arrived. A few movies, a snooze and a ‘couple’ of … Continue Reading
