While Sherri and her brother went to Nepal, the timing worked out for me to fly down to the Maldives for a week.

The Maldives are A-M-A-Z-I-N-G!!! Gorgeous turquoise waters surround a group of atolls located south-west of India. The Maldives have over 1,192 islands, of which only about two hundred are inhabited.

We took a small float plane from Male to the W’s private island. It was so beautiful flying over all the little islands and resorts along the way!
We snorkeled almost everyday and we even went diving! We saw sooooo many fish…huge Batfish followed us and would sneak up right behind you.
We also went deep sea fishing and caught 2 tuna (small ones), 2 Wahoo, 1 Dorado and 3 Barracuda! It was great! We ate the Wahoo for lunch…the kitchen made us fish quesadillas! And for dinner we had fresh tuna sashimi, barrcuda stir fry and grilled Dorado (mahe-mahe).
There is also an amazing spa on the property!
The Maldives are definitely one of the most beautiful places in the world!
The service and staff at the W’s resort and spa is unbelievable, making it a vacation you’ll always remember!
