Postcards From The Maldives


Well this is depressing. It's raining, 14 degrees, and I'm sitting putting together a post on one of the most beautiful places in the world. In my dressing gown. I'm trying hard to remember what it felt like to be in that sea with the sun on ma bones but.... nope, nothing.

Today's post is alll about the second half of our Maldives trip, which we spent at the wonderful Angsana Velavura resort. We were in two different rooms during our stay - land villas and ocean villas - and this post is all about the land villa.

The rooms were beautiful; nice and bright and colorful, and also came complete with another magical outdoor shower, which meant you could bathe with a beautiful view of the sky and trees above. Plus, it never really stops being fun being butt naked outside. Oh yeah, they also have a massive pool out back. All to yourself.

The dream, huh? Goodbye sharing a pool with stinky kids. Kidding, I don't dislike children that much, but one time a kid splashed me for no reason and soaked right through the book I was reading and I've had trust issues ever since. As well as wandering and gasping like goons at all the beautiful sights, we did do some activities on the island too. Full body massages - I definitely fell asleep about halfway through it was so relaxing - and jet-skiing.

Oh, the jetskiing, you have to do it. It's a great way to get out and see the sea properly, and with a cool breeze in your hair too. When I say cool breeze, I mean more of a wind in our case... I cranked it up to 85kpm and almost sent poor Felicity over the edge. Both literally and metaphorically.

You all know how much I love the Maldives by now, so I'll let the rest of the photos do the talking. One thing I will say, though, is that it's definitely not just a place for couples. As romantic it is - I will return there with a man on my arm, whether he wants to or not - we had an absolutely blast. We saw some beautiful, beautiful sights, ate some incredible food and laughed our absolute asses off. I swear to god my head's thrown back mid-cackle in 90% of my photos (not as attractive as it sounds, believe it or not).

Honestly this looks straight out of a fairytale book of some sort. Unlike you, I don't mind the cold! And that's just because I've lived in tropical weather my whole life. :P

woah this looks stunning! I would love to try out an outdoor shower, I'd feel childish and giggling being butt naked outside haha! And look at that pool I'd be in their all the time haha! Jet skiing is definitely a must for everyone! when we were like 16 a group of my friends stupidly took a ride from two guys down at our local beach (probably really silly looking back on it as they could have been dangerous) But it was the most thrilling experience ever and I'd love to ride on one abroad!

I cannot get over how beautiful that place is. Everything is so vibrant & I love it.
