Essie’s orange pedi made for a good beach holiday choice – the sun glared off them and made them look neon most of the time, which in turn made me happy staring at them!

Did you know, the Frangipani is found on every island of Maldives?
Clearly my wrinkly fingers are a tell-tale sign of the hours we spent in the water (;

Travelling should always be peppered with experiences that we keep in our hearts for a lifetime. We experience, we learn, we appreciate – we grow. Not just of places, spaces and cultures alike but more often that not, the very people we had the privilege of travelling with.

The days spent in the midst of the Indian ocean got me thinking about the beauty of nature and the little beings we are and the growing, unhealthy relationship we now harbour with our incessant obsession with smartphones, tablets etc. Guilty? I know I at times, I am, terribly.

Blessed to have had this getaway! Till the next time, beautiful atolls!
