Shortly after having posted a photo from Maldives on my Instagram profile, I got hundreds of messages from friends and followers. The questions were pretty much the same: “Are you really in Maldives? Where did you fly from? Can you travel to Maldives during Covid-19 pandemics? Did you have any problems on the way?” Followed by typical questions about Maldives vacation: “Which island are you on? How much did you pay?” Since this was a well-deserved yet short winter escape, I didn’t want to spend my week answering all the questions. Hence my response: “After I return, I will write a blog post and tell you everything you need to know.”
Po tem, ko sem zbrala pogum in objavila prvo fotografijo z Maldivov na svojem Instagram profilu, so me prijatelji in sledilci zasuli z zasebnimi sporočili. »A si res tam? Kako si letela? Se sploh da potovati? Si imela kaj težav na poti? Kako je s testi?« In pa seveda klasična vprašanja o Maldivih: »Na katerem otoku si? Koliko si plačala? Ali so hoteli polni?«, na katera sem obširno odgovorila že v tem članku. Ker sem se na Maldive odpravila na zaslužen dopust (med epidemijo smo imeli v našem podjetju nekaj mesecev skoraj izredno stanje), ga resnično nisem želela preživeti na telefonu, zato sem vsem odgovorila enako: »Ko se vrnem, spišem blog, kjer bom odgovorila na vsa vprašanja.«
Maldives was not planned for this winter, however the covid-19 situation left us with not many safe travel choices. I desperately needed an escape to a tropical climate, even if just for a week, to warm up my bones and recover from all the stress in 2020. I have had my share of Maldives vacations, so I definitely know what to look for when choosing the right island. This time I decided to trust the photos and reviews of Veligandu Island Resort & Spa and go for the water villa. I couldn’t have made a better choice.
