Three years ago, my wife suggested we go on a holiday to the Maldives and I half-heartedly went along with the idea. I didn’t think there was much for us to do in Maldives at the time. Thankfully, my wife diligently did all the research on the island and managed to curate a wonderful itinerary for us.

We flew to Maldives after a short visit to Mumbai in India. As the flight was descending, the view of the ocean and islands brought immense joy to me.
