Here is a quick report on my trip to the Maldives. I’ll have to follow up with a longer post, so this will have to do for now. There never seems to be enough hours in the day.
The Maldives is a beautiful place with white sand beaches and sunshine. I really enjoyed my time there. The Maldives is best known for its super fancy resorts. I stayed at the Conrad Maldives Rangali Island. A very nice hotel! I normally don’t stay in that nice of hotels, but I decided to splurge since I wasn’t actually paying, lol. I used Hilton points to score 4 free nights. Also Hilton is devaluing their points in 2015, So I wanted to get the most out of them before that happened.
I just can’t get enough of tropical islands no matter where they are. It really doesn’t take alot of money to be able to visit some of these great places. Not sure if you have heard about “Travel Hacking” but it is how I do almost 99% of my travel. Basically you work the system so that you can get free or super cheap travel. That includes airfare and hotel stays. It just takes a little bit of your time and some organizational skills to get it done. Plus a little reading helps too. But I really enjoy reading about other peoples adventures around the world. I’ll have to make a post about the basics to Travel Hacking.
Back to the Maldives. This place is awesome! Especially if you are into Scuba Diving or Snorkeling. I recently got certified to Scuba Dive. Before that I was an avid Snorkeler. Snorkeling is awesome and inexpensive way to view the beauty of the ocean. Most places you can rent gear for 5-15 dollars a day, or you can buy your own and lug it around. But I’ve found that its terribly painful to try and fit it in my carry-on luggage since I don’t normally check bags.
Well this is all I have time for now, So I’ll be working on a longer and more in depth trip report.
Until then Stay Awesome!!
