Just last week my friends invited me to go on vacation in Maldives. I agreed immediately since it’s my first time in Maldives. I read lots of travel blogs and I found this one which has a detailed travel tips ( the most detailed so far!) based from his experience in Maldives. You can also check this out!
The forecast was sunny, but it was raining when we landed in the Maldives. Naturally, I began to worry about the coming days. I didn’t come all the way here to see grey clouds looming over gloomy seascapes. The thoughts of shallow waters gently swaying below iconic water bungalows that these islands have been known for started to drift away.
But sometimes, the universe has a way of surprising us.
The next morning, we were greeted by the sun, shining above the ivory beach. It would never rain again at any time during our stay.
The Maldives is one of those countries I never imagined I would be able to visit. If you asked me ten years ago if I would like to go to the Maldives, I would probably laugh in your face not because there’s something wrong with the idea of being there but because I knew it would never ever happen. Even the me of five years ago, someone who was just starting to travel blog, would have never guessed. At the time, there were only three things that I knew about the Maldives:
- It is an archipelagic nation in the middle of the Indian Ocean.
- It has a lot of private luxury resorts that I could never afford.
- It is expensive to go and stay there.
But like I said, the universe has a way of surprising us. Before I knew it, I was sitting on a wooden platform, trying to dip my toes on the most turquoise lagoon I had ever seen in my life. Maldives was never a dream for me, but when I was there, I felt like I was living in one.
