Day 9 – Turtles All the Way Down and Other Books
Since we have less work and more offs, I had more time to read. And I take only two to three evenings to finish a book so here are the recent three.
The 14-Day Project – Island Isolation Stories
On my last post, I’ve mentioned how I felt sad about bidding goodbye to our last guest and that, a 14-day quarantine will commence before anyone can leave the island.
Year End Dive
I left the island at 8am and headed to Male’ to join a fun dive. It was a warm, sunny morning, the last Sunday of 2019. I reached the meeting point at 9:30am and as I waited for the instructor and other divers to arrive, the bright blue sky suddenly turned gray. The round swollen…

Postcards from Maldives
I’ve read somewhere, that photography is not about taking photos of what everyone can see daily. It is about looking for angles that everyone fails to see, unless you point it out to them – by taking photos (these aren’t the exact words but, something along these lines). I have mentioned several times here already that…
I Wanna Have Abs Like Dionne Monsanto so I Went Snorkeling
I saw the recent post of Dionne on instagram and I was like, WOW ABS! I heard she is a swimmer, so I came up with an idea. https://www.instagram.com/p/BNiQJ3hAEZk/?taken-by=dionnemonsanto I went snorkeling for 2 days in a row thinking, if I would snorkel everyday, my abs can come a little bit closer to that of Dionne.…
