The Maldives day 2 at The Adaaran Prestige Vadoo

Since we had flown overnight to get to the Maldives I had no idea how long we would sleep that first night. We were both exhausted and went to bed early, then day 2 started off with a bit of a frantic getting ready so we didn't miss breakfast. I woke up and looked at the clock and it was 9:30 - and breakfast was only served until 10! So I told Raymond we have to go if we want food!

We had ordered Indian breakfast the night before. It was so so delicious! Dal, an eggplant/squash/carrot dish, and roti. It was a lot of food, but we loved it!

The decorations outside the restaurant. All made from Styrofoam. After breakfast we went to lounge on the beach for a bit


Triggerfish warning!

Relaxing on the beach. We found some lounge chairs under an umbrella so we could sit, drink out mocktails, read, and swim whenever we wanted




Lizard friend in the garden







I did get in the water for a little bit!








Raymond went snorkeling and took some photos of the fishes he saw!



















Lunch was a veggie shawarma with fries

And veggie couscous

Raymond was ready for food after all the snorkeling

After lunch it was back to the beach and the pool for swimming until the sun started getting us. Then back to our room to hang out in our plunge pool for a bit

We did go down for the fish feeding and there was a couple standing next to us. The lady said "You said you wanted to see a shark well there is one" to which he replied, in a very snotty voice, " Yeah but I wanted to see a big shark and that is a small on." They were having a good time...


Stingray came back - it was harder to see the fish from the dock with the glare. Much better from the bar from above



And back to our pool for sunset





Sometimes I can't decide what photos to keep and which ones to take out so I just leave them all in...











For the second day in a row you could watch the sun go behind the horizon, though I think these first two days were the only ones. Every other day it went behind some clouds low on the horizon, but was still gorgeous!

Dinner was eggplant soup - delicious!! I think they used a lot of cashew creams in the vegetarian things. So so good. 

And mushroom ravioli

With fruit for dessert for me

And chocolate mousse for Raymond. It was all so delicious!

We did have a jacuzzi in our room so we decided to try it out after dinner...only it took forever to fill up so by the time it was ready I was so sleepy! I didn't stay in long much to Raymond's dismay. It was a lovely day of relaxing, reading and swimming. The island is not very big, but it was so nice to be in such a beautiful place and not have anything to do!

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
