◾️ What I love about the Maldives ◾️

 

私とモルディブの出会い。。。それは。。。
I’d like to write about my first experience with the Maldives today!

I got a message from my friend while I was slacking off at work when I used to live in Hong Kong.

Friend: I found an air ticket to the Maldives for JPY20,000 (approx. US$190). Don’t you think it’s a steal? You should go!
Me: Have I ever said that before,,,? Well,,, 3 nights 4 days,,, the departure is the day after tomorrow, huh,,,?

Hmmm the Maldives is where newly-weds want to go at least once in their life, huh? What I just wanna do is just diving tho,,,

When I’m not in the mood, I’m quite low-key…. I was like “Nah~,,, I won’t go” but my friend kept asking me like “have you booked the ticket?” and telling me “you should go” like a broken record. And finally, I made up my mind to go there almost just to make him shut-up.

I don’t know why but I was persuaded and booked the flight immediately,,,, while I was working.

My colleague: Koyuki~ have you finished making the estimation for the client?
Me: Uh,,, I’m still working on it~^^;

当時のローカル島の情報は今ほどたくさんなくて、ダイビングショップもあるのかないのか、予約確定の連絡もなく、便利で合理的な香港に慣れた私は若干気持ちが萎えていた。

At that time, there was not much information available on the local islands in the Maldives, and I couldn’t even find any info on diving shop. Also, there was no confirmation email from the airline company and all those things were killing the mood…

出発日。。
Moreover,,,,

There were full of couples and newly-weds while I was ALONE.

CA: P,,,Please calm down and be seated, madam,,,

ゲストハウス到着後。
Even when I checked-in the guest house,,,

The staff asked me “oh, are you here by yourself ? How come? Don’t you have a boyfriend??”  and I was like “How dare you ask me such a question,,,? Mind your business”

そして翌朝。
Furthermore,,,IMG_1034

On the next day, the diving staff was late for an hour to pick me up.

Me: Why can’t they even make a phone call to me!?

I was quite irritated by all those things in the very beginning and that was my first impression of the Maldives.

Therefore, I was not in a good mood to enjoy diving, besides, the diving spot was near to the airport and I expected that I would not be able to see anything nice.

But, guess what????

I bumped into a big group of manta!!!

That was amazing enough to blow my mind.

That was my first experience in the Maldives, but there were a lot more amazing things waiting for me here! I will write about it next time 😉

まだまだ続くモルディブのすごいとこ!
