The Maldives Day 10: Kuramathi Island Resort & Sunset Cruise

Day 10 in the Maldives started with what else? Breakfast and then Shark Patrol! There were always lots of fishes off our swimming pool in the  morning since it was high tide

And lots of baby sharkies!!


I was trying to get a photo of me and baby sharkie...

A bigger one swam by as well!


And this guy swam by which I believe is a puffer fish!

So many sharkies swam by! It was a busy morning at Shark Patrol, but Raymond was a great Shark Patrol buddy!






After a while Raymond went snorkeling again in a different channel while I kept up the patrol





He is out there by the pole









All the photos of the sharkies! There were at least 3 baby ones, a larger one, and a pretty big one that swam by. One time two baby sharkies swam by at the same time!!

They had lots of special events going on every day for the holidays. Today was leaf crafts and napkin folding. It sounded kind of lame, but it was at the same time as high tea so we figured why not check it out when we got tea? It was only us and a lady with her daughter and was so much fun!! Seriously I loved it. The people working there that were teaching everything were super friendly and a lot of fun. Everyone else was missing out! I made some palm leaf crafts first

Then moved on to super fun napkins!! I took photos of all the steps so I could remember how to make them. One of my favorites is this napkin man!


And a turtle! So cute!

My fish and bird made out of palm leaves

Then time for tea. 

In the evening we had a sunset cruise! Went out on the boat to watch the sunset. I was a little worried I might get motion sick since it was crazy windy that day, but luckily I did not. 






Our place was the fifth from the left!












My hair was everywhere!










And it again went behind some low clouds



Once the sun set they gave us champagne! or juice for me
















Heading back to the dock

We went to the Thai place for dinner again and our waitress wasn't there! Sad. We had the pad thai again

Green curry which was really tasty

And we each had an order of the broccoli as I didn't want to share! It was too tasty!

For dessert we had an order of fried bananas and an order of fried pineapple. The bananas were delicious, but I didn't care for the batter with the pineapple. It was tasty without it though. A great end to another great day.

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
