Whenever we're on vacay, I tend to go crazy with my camera(s), but I try to keep my posts compacted, so that they don't become snooze central for you! My usual goal is to condense a collection of travel shots into one (or two), concise photo diary(ies). Last year, I was quite proud of the fact that I compacted around 7000 shots of the picturesque Jeju Island into a single post through maniacal snipping, editing and preening. However, this Nazi editing regime was futile with my photos from the Maldives... Why? Hopefully the pictures will speak for themselves. So I suppose this is the first of three (or four?) travel diaries from the Maldives. 

After frolicking about in the Maldives, I've come to the realisation that, there are two kinds of beaches in the world - The beaches of the Maldives, and the rest of the worlds' beaches. The crisp, fresh air, the perfectly white sands, the crystal clear, turquoise seas, the breath-taking coral reefs and adorable island animal life of the Maldives all make it undoubtedly the most beautiful place we've ever visited. I notice I've gone a bit heavy on the adjectives, but really, there is no other way to do justice to this slice of perfect paradise. 

Since being in the Maldives, Tas and I have spent most of or waking moments, in the water, mostly snorkelling around, frolicking amongst the beautiful coral reefs and soaking in the sun, so much that we've grown about 50 shades more tanned than when we first landed!
