Coconut Shavings and Honey

More tropical paradise for your viewing pleasure. It's safe to say that me lying in various hammocks and eating my new found favourite snack: coconut shavings and honey was my number one activity...other than photographing plants and the ocean of course. Alasdair and I were always walking along the beach looking out for moving shells. The tiny crabs were so cute. One of my highlights from our trip was our dinner on the beach. So. perfect. How relaxed we felt while we were there was almost surreal. I have literally never been able to chill out as much in one week as I did on Kuda Huraa. It totally prepared me for going back to Berlin and work. I still have two more posts coming up so you better not be sick of the Maldives just yet!

Items I'm wearing: Acne blouse and sandals, vintage Levi's shorts, poncho thingy from Paris (forgot the brand name) and a Norma Kamali Bill bikini set.

Analog

I have what seems like a thousand more photos to sift through and edit, primarly of foliage. I was pretty obsessed with all the bright colours and intense greens that were prevalent throughout the island. In juxtaposition to the white sand and turquoise ocean it just looked like paradise and I couldn't put down my camera. Since we didn't do anything other than chill and occasionally catch crabs, I hope you won't get sick of seeing an abundance of tropical images, in this case in analog.

Random fact: Tony Blair was at the same resort while we were there. Imagine our surprise when he was sitting next to us by the pool area...

Maldives

Looking at these pictures now just makes me want to hop onto the next plane and fly back. For the second part of our honeymoon Alasdair and I flew to the Maldives to the Four Seasons Kuda Huraa resort. After all our wedding stress and running around Paris for three days we were in serious need of relaxation, as in doing nothing but lying at the beach, snorkeling and drinking fresh fruit smoothies. It was one week of pure bliss. Here are the first photos, mostly of our beautiful bungalow. Tomorrow I have some photos of the island to show you!

The final Paris photos. This was the first time I had been to Paris since I was 14. We had such an amazing time and despite what I've heard, the Parisians were really lovely. The city is beautiful but super hectic, quite different from Berlin in that aspect. I loved the ambundance of delicious food and wine, the cleanlyness, everyone was so well dressed and the shopping is amazing! I'd love to go back and check out some vintage stores. Having a petit dejeuner every morning was perfect but the prices in Paris are everything but that. Everything is more than twice as expensive as in Berlin. A beer for 8€?! Are they insane?! It hurts me to pay more than 2.50€!

Also quite memorable, buying two eggs thinking they were cooked for our picninc and then cracking one of them over my knee. You can imagine how the rest of the story went. I don't think I've ever seen Alasdair laugh so hard. Drinking wine in the park and buying the worst cheese because we had no idea what was what, strolling down the streets at dusk, having a waiter feed Alasdair escargot (yes it happened!), spending about 3 hours running around trying to find a decent place to watch the tennis, going to the Louvre in the evening trying to sneak into a private party (it didn't work), chatting with an insanely smashed man who fell asleep behind his own bar after serving us plates of cheese...the list goes own. So many small adventures, I can't wait to go back!

Antigona

My look in Paris on our second day. Something more casual topped off with my Paris purchase, this beautiful Givenchy Antigona bag. The Antigona is seriously one of the most perfect bag shapes; a classic doctor bag updated by discreet hardware that is the ideal shade between silver and gold and a shoulder strap. How Givenchy could ever come up with something as hideous as the Nightingale and then the Antigona I don't know.

These are some ridiculously cheesy, touristy photos; me with a huge smile and the Arc de Triomphe behind me, ha! I am so crap at posing!

Sorry the updating hasn't been as regular. This week has been a drag. I'll be posting the final Paris photos tomorrow and then come the Maldives!

I am wearing a Zara shirt, Current/Elliot jeans, Chloe boots and a Givenchy bag.
