Beautiful sunset

It seems to work well to travel around
It seems to work pretty well to go around the islands of the Maldives after all. How much planning did you have to put in to do it? /Ake

Travel plans
TBH there is not a lot of information online for solo travellers. The atolls are built around luxury tourism. I made a few mistakes that were a bit costly, but it all worked out in the end for a wonderful trip!

Nice beach

Lovely
I might get something similar that in December. At least there is a pretty good chance of it since we are hoping to make a trip to Jamaica then. /Ake

On visiting Maldives
We visited the Maldives briefly in 2012. We would have liked to travel around by ourselves. But when we read about it we felt that we weren't interested in going through all the troble with organising such a trip. So we flew into Male, spent a few days in a resort and flew out again. Not at all the way we want to do things but that time it was the best option for us. /Ake

Maldives Beauty
We've been to the Seychelles but have not made it to the Maldives yet. Hopefully soon. It looks like you are having a great time.

Beach life
Thanks guys. Maldives is a marvelous part of the world, up there with Seychelles for natural beauty. But for me Seychelles is still number one, it's the stunning rocks on the coast that is the clincher. The most magnificent islands I've seen!

Traveling again
It is good to see you exploring the world again. The Maldives has been on our list for a long time but we haven't made it yet. Soon we hope. Thanks for taking us along.

Good for the soul
It is good for my soul to see these photos right now. At home, where I am right now, it is ice cold and it feels like we have 19 hours of night. I desperately need light and the warm weather you had in the Philippines /Ake

I'm sorry that Boracay didn't work out so well...
I hope you survived the possible case of dengue fever. I also got dengue fever at a beach...Hua Hin, Thailand...and spent the entire vacation in bed.

Hi Bob, I'll never know for sure, but was very unwell for a while. It even affected my vision and that was scary!

Chocolate Hills

I have swum with whale shark
When we were in Yucatan we booked a tour where we were allowed to swim with whale sharks. I came close enough to one of them that I actually touched it. It was an awesome expereince. The Chocolate hills also look stunning by the way. /Ake

Lucky you, only the weather stopped me this time. I hope to share the experience, and thanks for compliment on the Chocolate Hills.
