Finally I am writing the post about the Honeymoon!!!
It was a wonderful and relaxing week. It was only Paul and me, without any other thing around us to worry about. A perfect honeymoon for a one year married couple!!!
As I told you in my previous posts, after Sri Lanka we went to the Maldives for our late honeymoon, where we spent seven days in a resort called Kurumba.
Maldives, for those who don't know, is located south west of Sri Lanka and is an Island Nation composed by 1189 islets. It is formed by 26 atolls or coral islands usually surrounding an interior body of water, called a lagoon. You can't imagine how beautiful it is to see the Maldives from the air. You feel like you are flying above a paradise. It's simply amazing!!!
When we arrived to the airport we were picked up by some people from the Kurumba Resort and they took us there. It was a 20 minute trip in a very nice boat. Paul and I were so happy that those 2o minutes felt like five. When we arrived two people from the resort welcomed us at the entrance, took our luggages and then directed us to a reception room, where another person received us with cocktails. Everything was so beautiful and the service was excellent. They informed us that the rooms we had booked were not available and that they were going to upgrade us to a better one. Can you imagine? We were upgraded to a Garden Villa, which was a very big room supplied with all kind of things, a very big bathroom and a jacuzzi in a garden. They also gave us a bottle of wine!!!
However, we did meet a Colombian couple with a baby. Definitely Colombians are spread out all over the word. This couple lives in Baku, Azerbaijan and he works with British Petroleum. I would say he is part of the Colombian brain drain. It was very nice to meet them there, to speak Spanish and learn about other Colombians succeeding in the world.
We also went to an inhabited island called Himmafushi. Fushi in Dhivehi, the local language of the Maldives, means island. Local people make their living by building ships there, which later are sold to resorts or big companies. We went around Himmafushi, visited the local school, the cemetery. They also sell many handicrafts and delicious coconuts there!!! Very expensive though. I was really happy to see how people lived there and to spend time walking around a place where, perhaps, I will never come back to again.
It was a wonderful time to learn more about Paul and discover more about myself. I really enjoyed being in this part of the world and discovering the real meaning of a honeymoon!!!
Thank you Paul for a wonderful time together!!!
