We normally leave it to the end of the year but this year we felt we both need and deserve a break, so we are planning our 4th trip to The Maldives.
This time we are looking at islands in the Southern Maldives as all our other trips have been to North.
The first time we went there I was very dubious about things as Im not normally one for chilling out and relaxing but after a couple of days I fell totally in love with the place and the people. The snorkelling and diving have to be some of the best in the world.
To those of you reading this that know me you will be amazed to hear that I actually have two nine oclocks in my day when there, damn it I usually have 2 six thirties when normally I never see nine am's. I just dont see the need to get up at stupid oclock when at home in blighty when my office is next to my bedroom but in the Maldives,
I usually wake up around six am make a cup of coffee, open the doors from the beach villa and step down onto the powder white sands, walk the 20 yards to the ocean edge sit sown and watch the sunrise.
