I couldn’t sleep that night. It was already late. But since I couldn’t sleep, I took my phone and started searching for Ebe’s music videos on youtube. So random. His songs are timeless. And as I listened to song after song after song, I felt different emotions. Heartbreak, joy, hope. And finally, I wanted to play the guitar and sing his songs. But it was already about one in the morning and my room mate is deep in her sleep. I was thinking to go out of the room and find a place by the beach but I thought, it’s quite strange. So I just kept watching his videos and wait for sleep to come.

Last Saturday, our team went to an island called Faandhoo for a picnic and of course I will share the experience with you. However, this post will be different as I won’t be writing but I’ll be taking you with me to a trip to Faandhoo Island through a video. (My very first legit video! Yey!)
Today we visited the island called Mheedoo in Dhaalu Atoll. We went to a school and got a chance to meet some cute kids. Of course I took photos of them and of the island as well. Continue reading “This Little Island Girl”
A holiday in the Maldives is almost every couple’s dream especially those who are on honeymoon or celebrating their wedding anniversaries. Though nowadays, Maldives is becoming a family destination too.
There are so many resorts in the Maldives and each one of them have a different vibe. Some have a rustic feel, some luxurious and some, modern and casual. Kandima Resort is one of the latest additions to the continuously increasing number of resorts in the Maldives. A combination of modern and luxurious vibe.
Today, I was lucky enough to have an amazing encounter with the playful dolphins. I’ve never seen this much and this close. However, I found it hard to get nice pictures of them because they were very fast.
So here are some pictures that I have taken, no (dolphin) jump shots though, I’m such an amateur.
Though the shots aren’t the best ones, I still have to pat myself on the back for the effort and tell myself that I did like some of the photos and here are my favorite shots:
