Our trip to Maldives was a first for us. It is a long journey to get there.  It’s another four hours of flying beyond Dubai and then a sea plane and boat to Medhufaru.  But none of us were tired when we arrived. It was just so incredible to see the Indian ocean in person.

For the most part we relaxed on this trip. Lots of family bonding time, daily meditation, swimming, snorkeling and reading.

One day we made a short trip and visited the island of Kudafari. It’s a small fishing island with just 600 people living there. We met a few of the locals that told us about life on that island. We visited the school, hospital, mosque and the gathering spot where the elders spend each afternoon sharing life’s moments. A highlight of the trip for sure.
