Maldives, here we come – indie travel style! I am not going to fly many hours, book into an awesome all inclusive resort where alcohol is served and I can walk around in my bikini. I will be booking us into a guesthouse on an island in a regular guesthouse where not all beaches are for bikinis – and we are going to love it. I will be taking so many photos that I will break my previous holiday pics record. Visiting the maldives will be epic no matter what.

My dear husband has accepted the fact that he will see the world my way – and never use a travel agent ever again – so do not feel sorry for him!

I have booked our flights to and from Male, Maldives and have identified where we need to stay the first and last night with the ferry operating hours and flights back to Johannesburg. I have also identified an island or 2 I would like to stay on and some of the outings, now I just need to book…

If you knew how crazy I was, you would not be surprised to hear that my packing lists are done and that we will only be taking 10kg cabin luggage each. I’ve even bought a huge scarf to cover up as to not offend any locals. High on my list to find still, soft cotton dresses that go down to my knees at least.

I will be sharing my planning on the blog over the next 3 months, so keep on reading about our Maldives holiday.
