travel tip! Never go to a honeymooners island on your own!!!
Well you can but expect to get funny looks!
OK so I booked a trip to the Maldives as an add on to my Sri Lanka trip as I had not been before and was offered a good deal as an add on to the end of my trip - a nice way to relax surely?!
It was nice to get to the Maldives after the hustling and bustle of Sri Lanka where every corner someone wants to sell you something - well its easy to identify the tourists I guess!
So - Maldives it was!
Arrived and got a lovely huge bungalow - right on the beach - fantastic location - small island - I can walk round the island in 15 mins - funny walking round and suddenly finding your bungalow again so quickly!
Hmm pretty quiet here - my own beach - just me and Mr Crab - where is everyone???
AHHHHHHHHHHH Honeymooners! Why do they bother - they never come outside - they are all.
No problem here anyway I can enjoy the beach... watch the crab... all the fishing and snorkeling is all MINE!
but ..... as a single mealtimes are .... fun!
So heres the picture! Júst me on my own at a table with 4 places right next to the buffet - so everyone has to walk past - hey where did all these people come from(!) Guess the TV has finished - or maybe they are just refuelling! Why are people looking at me funny?! Im just eating? Am I wearing some thing wrong? Do I have food on my blouse??? Ahhhhhhhh!!!!! I am on my own - great! Now I understand why I am getting the puppy dog eyes ... ahhhh did your man leave already?? What a shame - hey I am on my own here - meal times are fun!
After the 2nd day I finally had enough and I found some other singles - guess they must have been on the other side when I was walking round! So we made a singles table - the fun side of the island! Laughs all the time !
Great few days break - make sure you dont go alone - or find some other singles - or wear a badge!!
