    • You could easily travel with kids to the Maldives, if your budget allows! It is very expensive there but totally worth it. Glad you enjoyed the photos. 🙂

  4. Yes I want to go to the Maldives. Right this minute. It really looks like paradise and great handstand by the way!

    Reply
    • HA! Thanks on the handstand. I was so inspired to take that photo one day that I must have done 50 of them to get the perfect photo! LOL The Maldives are paradise and we will be back.

  5. You’ve sold me! Every time I see pictures of the Maldives I want to hop on a plane and visit 😀

    Reply
    • Same here!! I was just looking at my passport today and came across the Maldives stamps and I looked at Dave and said, “Hey, we need to go back there!” 🙂

  6. Lina, wow, the Maldives look amazing. I haven’t visited yet but after seeing your photos I definitely need to plan to visit one day. Thank you for sharing (and making me envious…)

    • It is one of those destinations in the World that really is worth every penny spent for a visit. We were lucky as we were in SE Asia when we decided to go, so our tickets were less than $200 each to fly there. But being there is expensive, but again totally worth it! I couldn’t take a bad photo, the place is incredible on so many levels.
