Yesterday, I had a chance to visit Bandidhoo Island. It was my 2nd time to visit this island but on my first visit, I never got the chance to take pictures earlier so this time, I seized the opportunity.
A few days ago, I was in Velana International Airport for my flight to Manila. I arrived at the airport at 11:30am and my flight is, still, at 8:55pm.
I’m good at wasting spending time alone however, 9 hours is quite long for an airport as small as Velana Int’l Airport.
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.
Whenever I fly back to Maldives from my vacation, I will always arrive late in the evenings and there’s no possibility for me to take a seaplane to my resort as the seaplane company only operates from 6am to 6pm. So I would definitely require a place to stay for the night.
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:
Today, me and my colleagues went to another resort where the FUTSAL league is being held.
FUTSAL is a variation of Football played on a smaller court and to tell you, Maldivians are die hard Foot ball enthusiasts. So this game is a big thing for my Maldivian colleagues and we were there to support them.
Anyway, I’m not here to talk about FUTSAL or Football because I’m not really a big fan of the sport. I’m here to share some photos that I took. Well, taking photos of non-moving objects can be tricky, what more of moving people. Quite tough!
So here are few good ones out of almost a hundred that I rejected. (ha ha) I’m sure none of my colleagues will object to my posting of their photos. (ha ha)
We have tiny parrots here in the island and over the last few days I have fancied taking photos of them. It’s not easy to take photos of them as they keep on moving like little kids playing. Anyway, these tiny parrots don’t talk, they only chirp. They maybe small but they are loud.
Here’s some of the photos I took.
I was browsing through my folders today and saw the photos I took last December when I stayed in Male’ for a day prior to my flight to Manila.
I stayed in a guest house and took some photos of the room while letting the time pass.
I am so used to being alone without feeling lonely, however, the room where I stayed has this melancholic air in it.
Not so sure if the feeling was brought about by the color of the wall paper or the effect of the sun rays dimmed by the curtain.
Sometimes I wonder why I take photos of curtains and windows and wall paper and pillow and other trivial stuff.
But then when I look at these pictures again a few months after taking them, not only do they bring back memories of the day but they also stir up certain feelings, known and unknown.
One of the perks of working here in the Maldives is that whenever you get stressed from your daily tasks or routine, you can just go out of your office and look at the stunning view and you’ll be so relaxed when you get back to the office.
And if the view is not enough, you can swim or snorkel or go for cruise or night fishing.
Yesterday, me and my colleagues went out for a fishing trip. The water was so still, the color combination of the sea and the sky and the sunset, oh, I just can’t put into words the magnificence of the view so I just took photos and you decide how you are going to describe these images.
