From the moment I started chalking plan to travel to Maldives, all I had in my mind was pristine white sand and turquoise blue water. Being a traveler who moves around on shoestring budget, it was always difficult to manage everything yet miss nothing.
It took me one month of planning and then finally I was on my way to this enthralling destination with my best travel mate, my better half. From the moment the flight took off both of us were thrilled, and then came the moment after one and half hours when we saw tiny islands spread amongst blue water of the Indian Ocean, like clouds in the sky.
We landed at the Ibrahim Nasir International airport in Male against the backdrop of a setting Sun. The juncture we stepped outside the airport our jaws dropped as we had never imagined that we will see blue water just outside. From there our journey took us to South Male Atoll; though we were on a speed boat it seemed everything had come to a standstill and we were not looking at each other but to the captivating view that was surrounding us. We reached our destination in less than an hour’s time having crossed many beautiful small islands on our way. We relaxed in the evening in anticipation of the adventures that waited us.
