Maldives day 3 at The Adaaran Prestige Vadoo

Before we left for the Maldives I was looking at reviews for the resorts we were staying at. One of them complained about breakfast at this resort saying how it was lame it wasn't a buffet. You had to order what you wanted. They made it sound like it wasn't a lot of food or you could only order one thing or something. But that was not the case! Yes, you asked for whatever you wanted and they would bring it to you. They would bring more if you wanted more and they always asked if you wanted more and every morning we were so stuffed! It was great. 

Our second morning we didn't have the Indian breakfast as it was simply too much food and I wanted something lighter. When it is so hot then light foods are better for me. So we had bread and jam, fruit

Potatoes and salad. Raymond got pancakes. It was perfect. 

After breakfast it was again to the beach to relax!

We sat a bit farther back today in the true shade as Raymond got a bit burned sitting under the umbrella yesterday. While we were sitting there someone was showing some new arrivals around and said about the dangerous fish how they won't bite you or anything unless you grab them. So don't grab the fish. I thought who goes around just grabbing fish willy nilly? Why would you do that??


I would get my feet wet occasionally






A quick dip in the pool

And a bit of reading on the beach

Until lunch! Potato/corn cakes with veggies


Thai veggie soup

And tempura veggie with veggie fried rice. Yum! Though a lot of fried food for me

After lunch swim in the pool




Until  it started getting stormy looking. I know it doesn't look like it here, but there were some darker clouds that moved in so we headed back to our room to sit in the jacuzzi! 

Not the best photos as it was really windy, but you could always see lots of fish from the walkway to the rooms

The island from the rooms



Whoa I just realized I don't have any sunset photos! It was too cloudy so it wasn't anything special. 


Dinner was Spicy Alloo Chat with Tamarind Pani Puri and roasted nut Katchumba salad. Yeah, I took a photo of the menu this night so I would remember! Potatoes, fried chip thing, and a salad of cucumber, tomato, onion, coriander. Delicious!

The main was Vegetable Biryani with Vegetable Khorma, Pakora, and Red Chutney. So tasty! 


After dinner we walked along the beach and star gazed. I have an app that will tell you what stars you are looking at and the constellations so we used that to find different ones

Then we watched the Balinese dancing which was alright. The music was super loud!





We walked along the beach some more stargazing and saw some bioluminescent plankton! Not a lot, it looked like the beach was sparkling. It was fun. 

We got back to our room and when we put the key in to turn on the lights the TV was on to a channel that just plays The Coral Song on repeat! It was a fun surprise as we never turned the TV on! 

We could have stayed over on the beach and partied it up with the DJ, but the music was so loud! We could hear it in our room with the windows closed and the AC blasting. Crazy! But it didn't keep us awake so it was all good. Another nice, relaxing day in paradise.

Railay Beach, Thailand - Day 1

  Getting to Railay Beach from Bangkok kind of takes forever. We had taken the overnight train from Bangkok to Surat Thai where we had to switch to a bus to take us to Krabi. I slept much better on the train that night. I had put in my earplugs and only woke up a few times. It was great. I woke up around 6 and was ready to go. Raymond was just like you are so wakey! I was just like yeah - I actually slept! So I was all refreshed and ready to go.    We had picked up some banana muffins in Bangkok for breakfast, as well as leftovers from our feast the night before, and the muffins were delicious! We should have gotten more of them than we did. So we got to Surat Thani and had to switch to a bus like I said. It was a bit confusing where we should go and what was going on, but we got on the bus and it took us into Surat Thani Town. That bus was really nice so I thought the trip to Krabi would be great. Only we had to wait a bit and switch buses and the new bus, the one that took us

The First Two Weeks

From In Berlin Hello! So I have been here just over 2 weeks now which is a bit crazy and things are finally coming together. I really like our apartment. Lots of room and it is very quiet as we are a block off the main road. We finally got some furniture last week so the place is not as empty and we actually have chairs to sit on and a bed to sleep in (that is not the noisy air mattress). I even have my craft table set up, but I am still looking for storage for my fabrics and such (the ones I wanted were out of stock). Yesterday I sewed up curtains for the front windows so we can have the privacy blinds (big metal blinds that come down and cover the front windows and are on most of the ground floor windows around town) up and Raymond won't freak out that people can see in.The bedroom/my craft room is pretty much done. The back of the house gets much better light during the day so I set up shop back there to take advantage of it. If I worked in the front rooms I would need the

Stupid Libraries.

So I only have six minutes left and just wasted a few seconds letting you know, but I need some assistance in getting things off our iPod onto the net. In the last town we were in, I came so close to getting it up only to be thwarted by the only damn cd -burner in the shop being broken. This is the problem: my iPod is mac formatted - the folks at Apple thought it would be hilarious to not include some sort of compatibility between windows and mac versions of iTunes to read the voice memos you record from any computer. If your iPod formatted on a mac (I believe it's HSF +), windows iTunes will tell you to reformat the buggar . And get this, the iPod records voice memos in old school PC style wav files. What the hell. Anyway, I can't test or install things on this library computer, but if someone checking the blog who is tech savvy could find a program to retrieve data from a mac formatted iPod from a windows machine - a program that doesn't use a god damn insta
