Flying over the Maldives

Some attractions start before you even get there. So was my trip to the Maldives last week. I was on the plane approaching the islands (there are 1196 of them) after a loooong flight via Istanbul with Turkish Airlines, looked out of the window and was just: Wow. Doesn´t matter what is expecting me on the next few days, this view has already been worth the whole trip. The stewardesses were not strict at all and let me switch seats during the landing all the time, so I could take some nice shots I would like to share with you.

It is the capital with the biggest population per qm (75000 inhabitans on 5,8 qkm) of the world. You will recognize this island from the plane as soon as you see it because it doesn´t fit into the landscape at all. The are boats going to Malé and other near islands on the opposite side of the airport exit but I had to take another domestic flight of 1,5 hours to get to “my island”. The Robinson Club Maldives is located near the island of Kaadedhdhoo, which is 400 km far away from Malé (even Sri Lanka is closer). And for the first time of my life I was happy about an extra flight – because it meant even more air pictures for me!P1900918P1900931P1910069P1900943P1900987P1910019P1910063P1910060P1910070P1910074P1910079Another 30 min on a boat and I was finally there. In my princess beach bungalow with my princess bed and my princess bathroom – located in the garden and all open.P1910109P1910115P1910118P1910117P1910124P1910128I took some minutes to watch the sunset from “my beach” and then had a shower under the stars. Not too bad for the first day almost spent on the plane…

Puro Beach Palma: Before a Flight Home

If you are on vacation in Mallorca and your flight back is in the evening or late afternoon Puro Beach is a great place to enjoy the sun during the last hours of your holiday. This beachclub is located only 5 kilometers from the Palma Airport and they have changing rooms, showers and a place where you can store your suitcase. The charge for a sun bed is 35 euros (from 11 a.m.), which includes a towel, water and some fruit. If you like that place so much that you decide to miss your flight: there ared DJs and party in the evening as well. So when I was in Palma with my Mom last month we took the advantage of not having any men with us (“what? 35 euros for a bed? the beach around it is for free” would probably be the comment) and spent there the whole day.P1720061P1720089P1720099P1720086P1720186P1720312P1720207P1720442P1720119P1720392P1720310P1720412P1720365P1720431P1720465P1720516P1720678P1720535P1720560P1720459P1720712P1720699P1720798P1720753P1720645P1720722P1720692P1720689P1720782Certainly you can just come to Puro Beach only for lunch or dinner. We just had some snacks: patatas bravas (4 euros), fried octopus (8 euros) und a passion fruit mojito (11 euros). There are some good connections and really cheap flights with Easyjet to Palma de Mallorca from all over Europe.
