Our prize-of-a-lifetime, trip for two to the Maldives was doubly sweet. Spending 3 nights in the beautiful Kuda Huura Hotel was only just the beginning. The next leg of the journey, was a four night stay in the exclusive Four Seasons resort, Landaa Giravaaru.
It was sad to say goodbye to the Kuda Huura, and we were given a wonderful send-off. Yet there was a sense of excitement for what was next in store.
Our transfer was in a tiny Maldivian Sea-Plane. This in itself was an incredible experience! I have never taken-off or landed in the sea before! It was all a bit of an adventure, to say the least. We had to wear ear plugs that looked a bit like cheesy Watsits!
Flying over the Maldives is an astonishing sight. Atol after atol like shimmering pearls amidst the irridescent jewel-like ocean.
Around 40 minutes later, our destination came into view. We had certainly arrived in style!
Two years later, I still look back and pinch myself.
