Our Epic Spring
Break, Part II:
go after five nights at the Four Seasons Langkawi? Well if you
the epic spring break that we enjoyed in March of 2007, the
course is The Maldives! Continuing our spring break of a
flew from Langkawi back to Singapore to board a plane to Male,
nation's capital and jumping off point for the archipelago that
Islands. We were invited there by the parent of one of Tracy's
school students, and we were treated royally. Our stay was at
Thulhagiri Island Resort, a small island that is about 300
circumference. Compared to some of the posher resorts, this was
mid-level resort in terms of price and amenities, but how much
pampering do you need when you are surrounded by the stunning
and crystalline water? Thulhagiri is very popular with
divers, but we were content to snorkel off the back porch of our
villa, and later went fishing. All that of course, in addition
enjoying the pristine beaches. The photo
left shows us arriving at Thulhagiri after a 15 minute speedboat
from the capital of Male, while the photo to the right shows
relaxing on the Island's beautiful beach.
A Video Overview
Our tour begins with a brief video of overview, since the
island is small enough to be traversed in but a few minutes.
This is a
much more recent tour, shot just two years ago, but the basic
of the island seemed to have remained unchanged with the
the addition of a spa. This video is courtesy of derbrunner1.
