One of the things we were adamant to do was head to a desert island, in my mind I imagined being on a desert island would be like being on an episode of shipwrecked - who remembers that show? I almost wanted to be set tasks and try to survive on an island with some coconut trees and little else.
Obviously, that wasn't the case. We had a little slice of luxury on this island, the team brought us onto the island on a small speed boat but that wasn't without its challenges. The speed boat was very fast, as I'm sure you can imagine, which led to very strong winds hitting us in the face which became stronger as we got further and further away from Kandolhu. As we were approaching the nearby desert island my auntie's hat ended up flying off of her head and we circled the waters in a bid to retrieve it. We genuinely circled this floating hat for a good five minutes before we realised we just wouldn't be able to reach it from our boat and as much as we stressed it was fine, the hat could go, one of the guys jumped in to get it. With a very soggy hat back in our possession we continued the journey to the island.
We did quite a lot more in the Maldives believe it or not, for such a small island there was plenty to do. The Maldives is perfect if you want to kick back, relax and completely switch off from the world but on the other hand, you can also get stuck in with a variety of water sports and excursions like we did. Today I wanted to share the desert island as it was something we were really looking forward to doing; how many people can say they've been on a desert island? I've still got so much more to share from the Maldives so keep your eyes peeled for newer posts.
