The second part of our holidays was the Maldives. It's a place we both been wanting to go to for ages, because it is beautiful and romantic, and also because it apparently has the best diving in the world.

We left Dubai at 2am on Monday and boarded an Emirates flight. The flight passed by Colombo before it went to Male. While we were approaching Male, we could already see the islands underneath. Just seeing that was an amazing sight already. We landed in Male, went through customs and then boarded a speedboat to go to the resort. The ride was only 45 minutes and a little bit rough in the beginning.

The resort is just very nice. Exactly what you expect from a 4-star resort. Staff were nice, food is great, room is good, view is amazing, and not too expensive either.

We spend 10 days there, just sitting by the pool and diving. It's so relaxing just sitting by the pool in the sun. When bored we just walked in the sea, then lay about more, have a drink, lay more, swam a bit, etc. Basically the ideal holiday.

I highly recommend the Maldives. You should definitely go there if you haven't been. And don't go there with your mate, go with your loved one. Otherwise you'll be like the two chaps we met there who had to explain to everybody that they weren't together.
