A paradise that I only see in photos, experience through story 🙂
Unfortunately, this breathtaking world class resort has been experienced only by my loving husband, he left me and enjoy Maldives alone 🙁
Just kidding he would never do that, his travel to Maldives is work related. Supposed to be I will join him, as there is no issue with his company as long as I will be paying for my own flight ticket. And his company will be covering the expenses for the food, sea plane to resort and accommodations totally great deal.
His trip is originally planned for the month of October 2016 but got postponed and they are unsure when it will be rescheduled. One month passed and no news at all.
I really want to have a short vacation to change my mood, I feel suffocated in my surroundings might be a result of stress and pressures of work and life.
And since my siblings are going for a vacation to the Philippines and the last time we are altogether was 2012, so I got an idea and asked my husband if I can go home for a while. He didn’t agree, my husband is clingy and like a baby, he is totally lost when I am not around 🙂 But after a few days of convincing him and negotiations, he finally agreed for a 12 days vacation. He cannot join me for vacation as they have a big project to work on.
I am happy that he supported me, I went for a short trip in Thailand and enjoy my time with my parents and siblings at the Philippines, it was fun!
On my 5th day, he called me to announced the not so good news. His Maldives trip is confirmed 3 days after that.
He is a bit upset as he doesn’t want to travel alone, he said he will not enjoy it, (I hope it’s true just kidding) as we know that Maldives is ideal for couple so his worried is he will feel jealous for all the lovebirds out there, but he doesn’t have any choice but to go and do his task.
I don’t feel any regrets about going home at least I enjoyed my days with my parents and sibs, but hello! I am just a human, there are these thoughts playing in my mind the what ifs questions…. what if I delayed my vacation for at least 1 week, what if I re-book my flight I might in Maldives too and enjoying our time together.
But it’s fine, our travel plans can wait, we just need to work+save and we can do it, it will not be in this world-class resort as the price is totally mind blowing but what matter is the quality time we will be spending. For now, I will convince myself that Maldives is just a normal Island with normal beaches.
Below are the photos that my loving husband took. Judge it if he really didn’t enjoy it.
