Travel In Maldives Without Breaking Your Bank

Notes by yeyette on Wednesday, October 21st, 2015 under Maldives

Standard Post with ImageBelow are the questions before my travel to Maldives and my answer is in the BLUE color after my travel in Maldives. Information(s) I gathered a week before my travel: 1) There are no boats from Malé to the other islands on Friday. There are no boats from Malé to the other islands on Friday doesn't mean there is nothing at all. THERE is a boat from Hulhule (airport) to Malé and from Hulhumale to Malé. No boats from Malé to the other islands on Friday meaning to those island that is quiet far from Malé, as far as 30 mins.…more

Mingle With The Locals by Watching the Spectacular Sunset

Notes by yeyette on Saturday, October 10th, 2015 under Featured, Mahibadhoo

Standard Post with ImageWatching the magnificent sunset all alone is not a bad idea (but it won't happen unless you are the sole survivor in an island) but to make it worthwhile even though you are traveling alone, mingle with the locals. Walk to your left side when you go out from Amazing Noovilu's guesthouse. Walk all the way where you can see a tower, turn right and you will see the locals chatting by the lagoon waiting for the sunset. The sun slowly change its color when I reached the area and it was friendly enough for you to look at it . The…more

Picnic in a Deserted Island

Notes by yeyette on Saturday, September 5th, 2015 under Mahibadhoo

Standard Post with ImageWe woke up at around 8AM to get ready for a picnic at the deserted island. We will take our breakfast there and the travel time from the resort to the island was around 20 mins. Mazin's mother prepare all the food for us, breakfast, snacks, lunch, and dessert. I find time to take some pictures in Mazin's lawn while waiting for the group.

Malé to Mahibadhoo

Notes by yeyette on Saturday, August 15th, 2015 under Mahibadhoo

Standard Post with ImageWe arrived in Malé at 10AM and the travel time to Mahibadhoo was at 4PM via public speedboat. It was still early to check the ferry but I wanted to know where the ferry is located. I went around the city and again, there was a guy approached me asking me where will I go. I think it's a norm in Malé that people will ask you if you looked like a tourist. It's either their way of business or they are just trying to help. I told him I will go to Mahibadhoo and I want to know where is…more

Goodbye but Not Forever

Notes by yeyette on Sunday, July 12th, 2015 under Huraa

Standard Post with ImageI checked out at 7AM because I have to catch a ferry at 8AM going back to Malé. No, I am not going home yet. I've yet to do some adventure in another island that is a four hour ride from Malé. Musthafa meet us at 7:15 in the restaurant. They served us coffee. Oh I love their coffee. He was so kind not to let me pay the snorkeling lesson. He told me that Massimo from Italy became his friend and help him looking for customer by replying their emails. Musthafa cannot communicate well in English writing but is…more

Morning walk at Huraa, Kaafu Atoll

Notes by yeyette on Sunday, July 5th, 2015 under Huraa

Standard Post with ImageI always love the sunset and the sunrise. I woke up at 5:45 to see the sunrise. The sun will up at 6:15AM at the back of the guesthouse. As I walked around, I saw local women jogging and walking with their dress on. Don't be surprised, it's their culture. You can sit on the lounge but you cannot swim here with your bikini. An early morning walk like this view will surely bring a smile on your face.
