Maldives memories

with 2 comments

Back to work life for 2 weeks already….while the memory of the wedding and the honeymoon trip is still vividly in my mind…it was such a relaxing trip in maldives , had nothing very special there, just sleep, eat , swim, relax, afternoon nap, eat and repeat the cycle for a few days…..but it was really nice to enjoy the beautiful sunrise , sunset, natural blue sky & sea breeze, sunshine and food…

the resort we’ve chosen was definitely a good choice, maybe even better if the drinks were included in our Full Board (that means the package includes all meals for breakfast, lunch and dinner)….otherwise everything is just great and the villa is newly built and is perfect….

As we arrived Male at midnight, we needed to stay in another resort of Angsana and early next morning, we took the seaplane and headed to the island, Velavaru….it’s a 30 min ride and it’s my first time taking seaplane and it was cool to view all the atolls from sky…beautiful

Channel Road Inn – Santa Monica

leave a comment »

Channel Road Inn, Santa Monica

Strongly recommend this small cozy 15-room b&b inn if look for accomodation in Santa Monica, though must admit that it is a little bit far away from the Santa Monica downdown area – 3rd street promenade with around US12 taxi cost for each ride.

The hotels in Santa Monica are quite expensive.  With our limited budget, there isn’t much choice for us given we would need some place clean & tidy (i still remember 10 years ago my friends & I got scabies (very terrible) when we were in florida and so…clean & tidy is on  no. 1 agenda).. but luckily that we found Channel Road Inn on web and they really don’t let us down…I love it and i’ll stay there again if i come to santa monica next time..
