Paradise? Just about.Posted: September 5, 2011
Because I am a princess, I have been blessed with the opportunity to visit Paradise (aka the Maldives islands on the Indian Ocean). It is truly the most beautiful place I have ever been and is the closest to Paradise I will ever be. My mom and I are on this little island of Iru Fushi –staying in the Hilton Resort and Spa (consider me spoiled; I’m an only child!)– bonding. Surprisingly, she hasn’t driven me nuts in these close quarters yet, although the never-ending photoshoots…….well, I’m not a model.
We’ve been here for 3 days (1 more left!) and I’ve already snorkeled, open-water dived, saw dolphins (HUNDREDS!) and ate lots of curry and ramen noodles. I will post photos in my next blog since I didn’t bring my camera cord; I came unprepared for this spontaneously planned trip.
I have to admit I am not missing Brooklyn as much as I thought I would. That’s likely because I’m in Paradise. Silly me!
Anyhow, I just wanted to give a brief update of my latest whereabouts!
Well, the rain passed and the sun is shining! Must return to my water villa for a mid-afternoon nap facing the translucent turquoise ocean…
