Beautiful Maldives

By Mridula Dwivedi May 16, 2014 16 Comments , , , ,

I cannot count the number of times I have been using Maldives pictures for sky watch. Well, I am going to do so one more time. After that if everything goes according to the plan, the next Thursday I should be in Jordan, where I get to attend the mass by the pope. This is on invitation from Jordan Tourism. But befor...

Maldivian Sunsets

By Mridula Dwivedi May 9, 2014 26 Comments , , ,

For today's Sky Watch I bring you the Maldivian sunsets with silhouettes. Being on a beach at sunset is a beautiful experience, in Maldives doubly so. You can gaze into the golden water or watch the waves at play. On the day I clicked pictures, there was a gentle breeze as well. The heat had substantially subsided. ...

Maldives Nostalgia

By Mridula Dwivedi May 2, 2014 22 Comments , , , ,

Looking at my Maldives pictures leaves me with such deep nostalgia. Not looking at them also induces it! If I could run back to Maafushi, I would do so right this moment. This time I will go with a underwater casing for my mobile phone and I will not fall sick when I come back! [caption id="attachment_11109" alig...

Maldives on Budget

By Mridula Dwivedi April 24, 2014 34 Comments , , ,

I always had the impression, along with some of my friends who like to travel, that Maldives was an incredibly expensive destination. Then I chanced across Svetlana's Maldives posts on a budget. That was a complete blessing, as it showed me that Maldives on budget was possible. Now, that I have done the trip here ar...

Fihalhohi Island Resort, Maldives

By Mridula Dwivedi April 23, 2014 39 Comments , ,

We opted to go to the Fihalhohi Island Resort, Maldives because it was easier on the pocket. We were actually staying on Maafushi, which is a budget island. The excursions were available to both Anantara and Taj Exotica but it was so expensive for me. Most of the islands take day guests. So, the population on a reso...

Dress Code for Women in Maafushi, Maldives

Maldives is a beach destination. And you need to read no further if you are visiting a resort island. At a resort island there are just tourists and no restrictions on dress. However, I was visiting a budget island, Maafushi and Maldives is a Muslim nation. On Maafushi there is a local population. So, I was wonderin...

For quite a few Fridays it is going to be Maldives, a slice of the paradise! I start with this picture of the local beach at Maafushi. The black dots you see in the distance are local women in their hijab taking a dip in the sea. After all this island is their home. I was asking a local boy if they found the presenc...

When I Went Scbua Diving in Maldives!

By Mridula Dwivedi April 15, 2014 20 Comments , ,

I initially thought I would not go scuba diving at Maafushi, Maldives even though it is supposed to be a great spot for diving. I then thought I would just go and ask how much would it cost. I hoped it would be too expensive and I would walk away! No such luck, the first place I asked at was quite reasonable, they q...

Ah! Maldives

By Mridula Dwivedi April 12, 2014 10 Comments , ,

Maldives is the second country after South Africa where I want to go back and look for work! My nephew asked me if we could extend the trip somehow? I often leave a bit of my heart at the places I visit, at Maldives I left behind a sizable chunk. [caption id="attachment_10936" align="aligncenter" width="540"] Maldi...

Amazing Fihalhohi Island, Maldives

By Mridula Dwivedi April 11, 2014 32 Comments , ,

During my short stay in Maldives we hopped to a resort island Fihalhohi, for a day. We were staying at the budget island of Maafushi- which is inhabited. The resort islands have nothing but the resort and the tourists. But whichever way you look at Maldives it is incredibly beautiful. Forget diving, even the snorkel...

I started my India travel blog, Travel Tales from India in 2005. In 2016 I realized Travel Tales from India and Abroad better reflected my writings. I love to walk and ride in metros around the world. I have not been everywhere, I am not even close, but it is on my list. I also quit my job as a professor in 2015, it was a happening year! I did a Ph.D. from IIT Kanpur ages ago!
