Honeymoon Recaps - Around the Island

Like I said, our island was tiny. Mr. Milk and I spent most of our days in the Maldives being lazy! And that is exactly what we wanted! Our days therefore looked very similar (with a few exceptions): we would wake up in the morning, go down to the restaurant to have breakfast, come back to our room, change into our swimwear, grab a book and other beach necessities, and head over to our beach loungers. At some point before lunch, someone would pass by with cold towels and skewers of fresh fruit rolled in coconut, yum! Since we were staying on a half-board basis, we would grab some snacks and a drink around 2-3pm and then would have dinner at around 8pm. In the meantime we read, swam, snorkeled, walked around the island, and just spent time with each other. 

So here is a selection of photos from our trip. We took about 1500 and I managed to narrow it down to about 50 for this post, and I still think some of them are repetitive! The scenery was just so stunning that we kept taking photos of it over and over and over again!

Near the bar and pool area

Towards the spa

More over-water bungalows. We thought about upgrading to one of these but loved our beach villa so much that we decided to stay put. 

Dinner our first night there.

Waiting to watch the sunset

One of the many gorgeous sunsets we saw

Fresh coconuts right of the tree! It's great being at the right at the right time!

Mr. Milk lookin tough :)

None of these are photoshopped by the way! Just taken with a good camera.

Mr. Milk took a scuba lesson and loved it!

Another gorgeous sunset

I love how the sun looks like its melting into the ocean

On the last day I get a little photo nuts, snapping everything in site in an attempt to take a small piece of the Maldives back home with us.

Doesn't this look like a postcard!?

P.S. Do you know what happened to Stacy at Born to be Mrs. Beever? I went to find her blog and it's not there anymore. Does she have a new blog I don't know about (aside from the recipe one?).
