Mal­dives,

Who could have imag­ined that the two things I’d love most about my dream trip to the lux­u­ri­ous One&only Reethi Rah re­sort in the Mal­dives would be the bi­cy­cle I rode along the man­i­cured beach and the Hawks­bill tur­tle I snorkelled along­side on a shal­low reef in the crys­tal-blue In­dian Ocean? That’s not to say that this is­land oa­sis wasn’t amaz­ing in ev­ery other way—be­cause it was. Ev­ery sin­gle de­tail, from the over-wa­ter yoga pavil­ion to the sea­side canopy beds, was a re­lax­ation dream come true. I never wanted to leave.

I’ve never ex­pe­ri­enced any­thing as lifeaf­firm­ing as snorkelling with en­dan­gered Hawks­bill sea tur­tles.
