This could be heaven - Return to Velassaru, Maldives

•••
It all started with my friend Caroline canceling last minute. We have known each other for 5 years, well enough for me to know that this might happen and when it did I was not all that suprised. Still – now I didn't have a girlfriend to join me on my girlfriend getaway! With just 2 weeks left I called up all my female friends, including those living in diffe[...]

10 minutes to paradise - a trip to Kurumba, Maldives

•••
A curious, open-minded, upbeat and outgoing child is a huge blessing. Mind you, it's also a huge challenge, particularly when said sweetheart gets so excited with the world that he finds it hard to part with it, particularly during nap times or at night. When they are as little as my Atlas they still need 2 naps a day, meaning I have to fight the sleep battl[...]

Coco Palm Resort, Maldives – a sustainable escape to the end of the world

•••
What if I told you there was a place in the Indian Ocean that can make you feel like you're stranded on a lonely island (with your loved one of course!) while still pampering you with all the treats of a luxury resort? Well, welcome to Coco Palm Resort on Dhunikolhu Island.  When we arrived at Dhunikolhu the clouds were tinted in a dramatic grey, like [...]

Hotels we love: the Four Seasons at Landaa Giravaaru, Maldives

•••
Coming to Landaa Giravaaru, short Landaa, felt like a dream. We had just been spending 4 amazing nights at the Four Seasons Resort in Kuda Huraa, another Maldives Island, (we wrote all about it here) and we really didn't think there could be any upgrade from there. There was. We walked into our beach villa - or was it a beach mansion? - like rap stars[...]

Do you ever stop and wonder how lucky you are? I don't know you of course, but if you have a job that pays the bills, a roof over your head and a few friends who love you then that's a pretty good start. Add the occasional holiday and maybe a few fun nights out on the town and you're even better off. Traveling, more than anything, reguarly reminds me of h[...]

Part One of our Maldives Diary - arriving at Velassaru

•••
The Maldives. Faraway paradise, reservered for honeymooners, vowel renewers, anniversary celebraters, wife cheaters and other people that come in couples. A place so exclusive that a trip there can only be afforded once in a lifetime and will forever be the pride of your family photo album. Whatever you might think about the Maldives, some of it is pr[...]

Dreaming of... The Maldives

•••
With the weekend coming along and the days growing shorter and colder, inevitably every year at this time I start itching to run away and play on a tropical island. Let me just start out by saying I'm the kind of girl who is perfectly happy (well, content anyways) to rough it a bit. I'd rather stretch out my vacation for months, traveling, eating and sleep[...]
