Maldives: paradise found!

20140614-132051.jpgWe are not ready to say goodbye to Maldives… but we said ‘until next time’ and hopped on the seaplane. Captain happened to be from Canada, fun chap!

20140614-130414.jpgHard not to enjoy our drinks looking out on this beautiful sight. 20140614-132909.jpgSo happy we got to see these beautiful islands; Male, Gangehi, Kuredu, and Komandoo – before they disappear underwater. 20140614-130510.jpgAll photos on our blog are taken by us –using simple iPhone and iPad actually. Here are some scenes we captured, enjoy.

Maldives: on our way to Komandoo!

20140602-094110.jpgSeaplane ride to Male, before another short flight to Komandoo. There is currently only one seaplane company operating flights – so prices and schedules are unpredictable and not fair. Locals mentioned that two other companies might start operating soon, which should help break the monopoly.

Our barefoot captains! They were fun… made me want to learn how to fly a seaplane. 20140602-094051.jpg
Seaplane platform….

Can’t wait to arrive at our new island to start exploring. For now we will relax at the Komandoo Private Lounge with our goodie bag.
