Once a year go someplace you’ve never been before – Dalai Lama
Travel is my dream and my dream is to travel the world. I guess it’s contagious or maybe in the genes; My adventurous boys love traveling too and i really find a pleasure in their enjoyment. They take the trip to the next level and change my perspective.
For Nady (3 years) it’s his third adventure, and the first for Joud (6 months), without counting the many trips back and forth between Lebanon and Qatar. I told you we like to live in a suitcase, and Antoun likes it :)
The decision to go to Maldives was taken on the spur of the moment. My mom was leaving back home (after 3 months with us), so we decided to wrap up her journey en beauté, and go all together with my brother and his family. Lets go for some sun and fun!
People find us crazy to go to such a romantic place with kids, i told you, kids change your perspective toward things. It’s still a romantic destination to chill and relax, but if you look at it from my eyes it’s also a enriching trip for the kids; Who said kids don’t admire beauty or don’t need such a heavenly environment where the vivid colors are so enchanting.
Your kids are what you teach them and expose them to. Last year we went for an adventure to sri lanka, to discover and see things that Nady used to see only in books. This year, with our new addition, Joud, we were sure that Maldives is the perfect opportunity to enjoy the nature masterpieces, the family and escape from the cold to benefit from the sun and get extra vitamin D.
Maldives is an island country in the Indian ocean, it is a long and narrow country formed by 26 natural atolls. The origin of the word atoll itself is in the language of the Maldives, is now used in many languages worldwide designating a ring-shaped coral reef cluding a coral rim that encircles a lagoon partially or completely. The capital and largest city is Malé, traditionally called the kings island.
We were in Meeru Island resort and spa, on the island of Meerufenfushi, North Malé Atoll. It’s the only resort on this island stretching over 1200 meters long by 350 meters wide. It’s a beautiful resort of a turquoise lagoon, white sand beach and palm trees.
The Maldivian hospitality is a must mention, we had a warm welcome and a great friendly and prompt service throughout our stay.
You can choose to either chillax under the sun or go for some water activities. Whether you are an adventurous traveler or just seeking relaxation you can enjoy:
- sea cruising
- water skiing
- kite boarding
- banana boating
- island hopping
- taking photos
- live cooking
- laying on the beach and catching tan
In our case we spent a lot of time at the beach and by the pool, enjoying our kids happiness, we roamed around the island for some memorable photos and enjoyed the Maldivian and international food and drinks.
Always looking forward to the next voyage :)
