Bittersweet Endings

"That's all folks!" as Porky Pig would say. My final post of the Maldives, one of the most beautiful holidays I have ever been on. Dolphins, flower baths, champagne, chocolate dipped strawberries, stunning scenery and us not wanting to leave sums up these final photos quite well. So now I'll be taking you back to Berlin and outfit posts, at least visually. I have to give myself a much needed kick in the ass to start taking my camera around Berlin with me more often.

Das war's! Meine letzten Fotos von den Malediven, eines der schönsten Orte, an denen ich je war. Delfine, Blumenbäder mit Champagner, in Schokolade getauchte Erdbeeren, die wunderschöne Insel und, dass ich noch gar nicht zurück wollte, fassen diese Bilder wohl am besten zusammen, besonders das Letztere! Jedenfalls geht's mit meinen Outfitposts wieder los und auch mit meinen Berlin-Bildern. Da muss ich mir mal gehörig in den Arsch treten, die Kamera öfters mit mir rumzuschleppen.

A few (or rather a lot) more photos of the Maldives. I have one more post coming tomorrow that I have to share with you of a separate island we travelled to, the spa island. For your beauty treatments you hop onto a tiny boat that takes you to a small island 5 minutes away. Alasdair and I had a massage and I had a body mask as well, falling asleep each time. While being pampered you watch the tropical fish swim right underneath through the large square of the floor that is made of glass. They also made a delicious, ice cold, ginger/lime/honey tea that you have after your spa treatment nap. Ah, bliss.
 
...jetzt habe ich fast schon wieder vergessen auf Deutsch zu schreiben, obwohl ich es mir schon 100x vorgenommen habe! So, ihr müsst jetzt leider noch mehr Fotos von den Malediven anschauen. Langsam kann man nur noch Pflanzen und persilweißen Sand auf diesem Blog sehen aber da der Sommer schon wieder verregnet ist kann ich nicht anders. Von der Spa-Insel habe ich euch noch nichts erzählt. Ungefähr fünf Minuten entfernt vom Four Seasons Resort kann man da gemütlich mit einem winzigen Boot hintuckern. Bei meiner Massage und einem Körperpeeling schaut man durch einen Glasboden auf den Meeresgrund. Nach zehn Minuten fiel ich in einen komatösen Tiefschlaf. Anschließend gab es einen eiskalten Ingwer/Limetten/Honigtee, den ich am liebsten jeden Tag trinken würde. Fast schon zu viel Enstpannung des Guten. Jedenfalls fällt mir das Arbeiten immer noch schwer!

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.

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...

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!
