In mid-December we hopped a Singapore Airlines jet for the Maldives, the low-lying island chain southwest of India. We’d long been fascinated by the place, after seeing pictures of coral atolls and sandy beaches, so we headed to a resort for a week or so, a little bit before Christmas.
It was amazing and we can’t wait to return!
We stayed at a resort called Kurumba, which took up the whole of a small island a short speedboat ride away from the island where the airport was built/ Check out these pictures of the resort and the surrounding beaches and water.
We had a little cabana right on the beach.
The resort offered diving, yoga, swimming… typical beach resort amenities. There wasn’t really all that much to do overall — which was exactly the point. Daddy went diving a lot, but otherwise we dd a lot of hanging out, reading, relaxing.
Nyan on the gorgeous beach that surrounded the entire island:
The lagoon around the beach were very shallow and warm. Sometimes a baby shark would swim by:
Don’t worry, the sharks weren’t dangerous. So Nyan spent a lot of time in the water too.
We took a lot of family pictures too:
Mostly we walked around the resort but one day we indulged Nyan’s desire to get a ride on the golf cart.
Yeah, Nyan spent most of the time being his normal self. Reading, sleeping, just being Nyan.
Including being a goofball from time to time:
Fianlly, some shots from the traveling experience. On the plane, at the airport…
And on the speedboat on the ride to the airport our last morning. Ahh. Lovely.
