maldives-dressing

Hi Everyone, :)

This my final post from a dream called, Maldives. :)

After some morning ocean swims, I pushed my lazy bum to get got ready to visit the biggest overwater villa in the world. Our Mr Friday took us around. It was HUGE with many bedrooms, lounge areas, dining areas, bathing areas, cinema area, gym, water slides, walking closets, …you name it and it had it. It made our huge Crusoe residence look small. loll! It’s great for families but sometimes couples also come and stay there. You have to see the pics below. 😀

Later in the evening we did the sunset sailing in a gorgeous wooden boat sipping glasses of champagnes and watching the sun go down. Truly romantic.

Gili LankanFushi hosted a gorgeous destination dinner for Sanjeev and me at their ‘One Palm Island’. We had our private chef and a butler at our service. There was only sound of the waves for the music and a canopy of stars for the magic. Just the two of us – our secret talks and yummy food. It was special and we’d never forget it. :)

Maldives was a dream come true. I don’t know how will we like any other destination ever again. But it was such a pleasure that we couldn’t be more grateful that we got to experience this piece of paradise together.

So..until next time is all I can say.

And you guys, I love you. Thank you for being a part of this magical experience. I realllly hope with all my heart that each one of you also get to experience this heaven on earth. :)

Leaving you with some stunning pics that Sanjeev clicked! :))

Some travel Information for your help :

Flight : We had a Delhi-> Columbo 3.5 hour flight and a connecting flight from Columbo to Maldives (1 hour). Same was the way back.

Visa : On Arrival. The airport authorities would give you a form, you would just have to fill that up.

Things to Do in Maldives : Snorkelling, Kayaking, Destination dinner (if your budget allows), lazy time at the beach / in ocean, sunset sailing, dolphins watching, sunrise and sunsets, beach sports such as parasailing, water boars etc (if you prefer). And most important, spend a LOT of time together. Don’t get too caught up in doing all the activities. Do some, leave some but make time for love. :)

Hi Everyone! :)

This is my second post from Maldives. I wore this outfit for lunch the other day. It had been quite an effort at dressing up because you never want to come out of the ocean. haha! But you know, I managed on and off. 😛

We shot these pics in Gili Lankanfushi at one of their jetty. It looks like a fork. You are always confused about which way to take. It’s so dreamy and beautiful. :)

We also did a dolphin cruise that evening and later enjoyed the sunset while sipping some champagne. The dolphins were really cute. We were lucky to spot some of them really close. They were playing with each other. :) I also shared a little video on my instagram HERE

Hope you enjoy the pics. I have more pics coming up in my final post. I’d share some pics of the biggest overwater villa in the world. Keep a look out for it.:)  See you soon. Mwaaah!!  Continue reading

Maldives : Gili LankanFushi – No Shoes, No News!

D84A6571

Hi Everyone! :)

This post is from Paradise. If you have been following us on instagram or facebook, you’d know that Sanjeev and I are in Maldives at the moment. We are Staying at Gili LankanFushi Resort, which got awarded as the #1 Hotel in the world a few days back only. And it truly is a heaven on earth. We just feel so lucky and blessed to be able to experience all this magical world. It’s a dream come true.

We are staying in a crusoe, which is a huge private villa located in the middle of the ocean. We have our own Mr Friday, who takes care of all our needs. There is sun deck, a huge bathroom that opens in the ocean and a bedroom that wakes us up to the views of the dreamy sea. Maldives is a honeymooner’s paradise because you get to spend a lot of private time together. But I’d say it is everyone’s paradise. The hotel staff told us that their oldest guests are coming back here again with their grand kids now. :))

In Gili LankanFushi they have a rule of ‘No news, no shoes’ too. I am someone who does not like to walk bare feet but honestly after staying here, I am not liking wearing shoes. The touch of white sand, the water running through toes and soft wooden floor – it feels so close to the nature. :)

I wore this dress yesterday for an evening cocktail party. They had an Asian Street Food style dinner served by the beach.

I don’t know what plans I have for today. Living with no news, no shoes, a ton of views and pretty much no clothes! 😀

Leaving you with first set of pics from our two days stay here. My ocean is waiting for me. :)  See you soon. Mwwwwaaaaahhh!!

Lisbon, Portugal + Must Do Things

celine-white-trio-bag

Hi Everyone, :)

This is the last post from our recent Europe Trip. Lisbon came in last after Greece, Budapest, Amsterdam and Barcelona.We were quite tired so we took all the chilled out time we could get during our Lisbon stay. We walked around the neighbourhood eating sweets at ancient bakeries, spent time at the beach and got to see the gorgeous view of the city from a castle located very high up.

We stayed at the Hotel Avenida Palace in Lisbon. It was a gorgeous old world kind of a hotel. EXCEPT. All the guests, and the staff were also oldies golides. 😀 The first day during breakfast we were the only young couple. The next day another added. You almost felt bad that a 60 year old gentleman is bringing tea for your room service. There were absolutely no complaints about the quality of services they offered. But it was something that I thought I could mention. We had a great stay there overall. :)

I mostly wore super comfy clothes. A red dress from Mango pretty much as a coverup for the beach and for visiting the Jeronimos Monastery. One day I slipped into these really cool high waisted chinos from Cos and finished off with white accents. And the last day it was again cosy in my denims, a checked shirt and my leather jacket (tied around the waist) in case it got chilly.

Leaving you with tons of photographs and your cheat sheet for Lisbon. Lisbon has the most gorgeous sky I have ever seen. It was a like a new painting after every few miles. I can’t wait to go back to both Amsterdam and Lisbon. They have added to my favourite cities in the world. If we had more time, we would have stayed longer there. :)

Must Do things :

  • Definitley try the Lisbon sweets from their traditional bakeries.
  • Lisbon is full of Indian restaurants. Food would barely we an issue for you there. We liked the Gandhi Palace. You could even do a food tour, if you fancy. :)
  • Walk the streets of Lisbon, especially in Alfama. They are gorgeous. Especially the walk down from castle to the town is just charming to say the least. There are also options for walking tours. Ask your hotel about it.
  • You’d find the most amazing shopping in Lisbon. Both of high end and high street brands. If you have limited time to shop, just go to El Corte Mall. You’d get tired but your heart would be left longing for more. Amazing.
  • Definitley visit the beach. Most beaches are quite far off from Lisbon but they are gorgeous. We spent time at Praia Do Guincho. Some people also mentioned Algarve. We just went to whatever was closet to us and it was heavenly.
  • There are little things such as taking a tram that goes past the river. You could catch the gorgeous scenery or take a tram up to the castle. You could spend time by the river side in Lisbon.

Overall, Lisbon was such a good mix of an old world city and a big happening buzz. If I had to describe it in just one word, it would be ‘sweet’. :))

Thank you sooooo much for being a part of the trip. Both Sanjeev and I were always damn excited about sharing and showing what that all we were seeing. These trips would have never been as exciting if it weren’t for you all. So thanks a ton. Until next time… very soon! :) Loooooodsss of love. :-*  Continue reading

Barcelona, Spain + Must Do Things in Barcelona

park-guell-barcelona-photos

Here’s my final post from Barcelona, Spain. Sanjeev and I had a dinner with a reader and her husband in on our last evening there. It was quite nice to meet someone all the way midway in the world. :))

The last two days we spent hopping around the city catching up on Park Guell, Camp Nou, the National Museum and then finally spending a long evening at the Barceloneta Beach.

Camp Nou became a rather emotional journey for both of us even though we are not a football fan. Reading the stories about the players, looking at the medals, and seeing the photographs – it gave us goosebumps. It has become a dream now to come back to Camp Nou to watch a live match. Can’t wait for that. :)

We found the weather of Spain to be absolutely gorgeous. It’s pretty much how Indian weather is in March/ April – quite comforting and warm. I mean coming from the freezing Amsterdam, it felt like a relief. Plus we got to enjoy the beach so that was awesome. :)

I wore this lovely off shoulder crochet dress and frolicked around the city. 😀 The blue Chanel ‘Wallet on Chain’ is a new addition to my collection of bags. As I said, Barcelona had incredible shopping. We just ended up during holiday time so couldn’t shop much. But still, I scored quite an epic in one go itself. hihih

I hope you enjoyed the photos. :) We are in Lisbon at the moment,which apparently has become our second favourite place after Amsterdam. I can’t wait to share it with you all. :-* Leaving you with dozens of photos and your Barcelona cheat sheet. :)

See you sooooon!!! :)) Continue reading
