Maldives - dreamy islands with swaying palm trees, soft powdery white sand, clear warm waters and bright sunny weather.
When the plane landed in Male, the capital, I was disappointed. Where are my dreamy islands?
Went to sleep in Male and woke up to take a boat to my island. And you know what? I was thrilled. It's everything that I've dreamt of and more.
I knew I will return to Maldives and to ensure that I go diving this time. Instead of staying at an island resort like the 1st time, decided to join a dive safari and truly splashed out on the MV Manthiri safari boat, my floating hotel for 9 sweet days!
It was an experience to remember with fabulous diving, great company and my birthday to celebrate in style (got my own cake, homemade no less from the boat kitchen, visiting local islands and sipping margarita, wine and champagne!!!)
Will there more visits? Most definitely! I'm now on my 4th visit in Sept 2007 :-)
A trip to the Maldives would not be complete without an encounter with these gentle giants of the sea. Manta rays are totally beautiful, graceful and curious.
My most memorable experience is when they glided over me so close that their underbelly rubbed against my head!
And each trip gets better every time. During my last trip in Sept 2007, we experienced an insane dive where there were at least 50 mantas and a whale shark who came to check things out!
