Maldives – Paradise Island

Our honeymoon package included 3 nights in the Maldives. The place is heaven on earth and the hotel we stayed at was called Paradise Island, it’s literally PARADISE. They chose the perfect name.

We booked a half board room which included a Jacuzzi on the terrace.

The water is so clear and the place is just relaxing, it’s exactly what we needed before heading back to work.

The honeymoon package included breakfast and dinner buffet only.   Well the island is super expensive so we had a heavy breakfast and skipped lunch. A meal is approx. $50. Yup! Now you know why we skipped lunch lol. After relaxing for 2 days, we decided to try out any water sports activity so we picked the cheapest because EVERYTHING IS EXPENSIVE. The cheapest activity which we purchased was parasailing which costs $100 EACH but the view was WOOOWWW!!!

Tim and I would love to go there again just to relax and not think of the world. Word of advice though, don’t stay more than 3 nights, it gets boring but that time of doing nothing and just relaxing is NEEDED and the Maldives is the perfect place for that.

Sri Lanka – Buddha’s Tooth

Tim and I spent our honeymoon in Sri Lanka. Our tour guide Zudhi, the friendliest and sweetest person we’ve met planned to take us to attend Esala Peraher in Kandy. It is a massive parade which lasts 10 days. Tim and I were fortunate to attend the first day, where the parade lasts for 3 hours. Oh you think that’s long? Hell No! Zudhi told us that on the 5th day, the parade lasts for 5 hours.

The main event of the parade was to wait patiently for Buddha’s tooth which is kept in a golden box. It is a very important event in Kandy and all around Sri Lanka but we were lucky to attend the biggest one and which happens to be in Kandy. I have to admit, I didn’t have the patience. We watched the parade for an hour and decided to leave.
