a lazy Sunday on a tiny atol!

View Sri Lanka & Maldives - 2016 on Ils1976's travel map.

Sunday is usually the day to rest and take things easy after a whole week of working, but now that we were on holiday, we decided to take things slow as well, so after we slowly woke up and got dressed, we admired our view on the terrace for a while and went on our way for another delicious breakfast.

At the main restaurant everything is set up in buffet style, but there were just so many delicious things to choose from that it was more than difficult what to try first. Luckily we were staying here for more than one night, so every morning, lunch or evening it was about choices, choices and more choices, what a harsh life we lead!

Back in our room about an hour later, we changed into our swimmers and took along our snorkling gear, the most important thing here on the island and still amazed with all the luck of having a water villa, we were still happy campers about a day later.

Today we decided to have one more look again at the other side of our tiny atoll, so we went back to the west side where we were swimming the first day and today I took my camera with me. 

Although the sun was still shining brightly high up in the sky, we noticed a change in the water and although it was pretty quite the last couple of days, it seemed that things were about to change. 

When Tania looked at the weather forecast, it seemed that it was about to rain here in this part of paradise, but with just a bit of luck, we would be long gone and back to cold and freezy Belgium. For now however, we were enjoying the warmth of that bright yellow thing up in the sky and although the sea was a bit rougher than yesterday, we didn't mind it one bit.

The fishes and the coral were still there, so yet again we had a more than amazing time in the water. With the sea being a bit rougher than yesterday, it was more difficult to spot smaller fishes and taking pictures of them of course wasn't an easy task as well, so after a while I just enjoyed snorkling around the area.



Our day in total may sound pretty boring to most people but for me it was a incredible good day because after months of working in the office it was nice for a change to say ... I did nothing else but snorkling, sunbathing, eating, sleeping and repeating things the whole day till the sun went down ... doing just nothing for a day was more than a bliss!

As we watched yet another beautiful sunset, afterwards, we went for total relaxation as we got ourselves pampered having a Balinese massage. This was truly a nice ending to the day and all rejuvenated again, we had our last dinner here on the island, went for it during dessert which was more than delicious by the way and to top things of there was a karoake going on with all the wrong music you could ever imagine, but with a few cocktails this all sounded more than amazing.


It was the best Sunday I had in a long time and still with a smile on my face I went to bed way after midnight!
