The Maldives


#1

Always thought they were somewhere near Portugal.

Next week: The Scilly Isles


#2

a holiday destination only chosen if you win it on an ITV gameshow


#3

We’re top lads.


#4

Me too.

When I first got a job in London, the agency I worked for celebrated by using up all the accrued 5 years of air miles to take the 20 or so of us there for 4 days. Everyone couldn’t believe it. I thought we were just going to somewhere shit near Spain, TBH.

They were pretty nice, and I now realise how lucky I was to go there, and how unlucky all the honeymooning couples were to have us descend on their dream getaway.

Though I would rather revisit about 100 places I’ve been in my life over ever going back there, mind.


#5

They’ve got a shit bust of CR7 at the airport there, haven’t they?


#6

great band


#7

my colleague is from Maldives

she doesn’t called it The Maldives, just Maldives

They just had a general election and the new government is supposed to be a lot better than the old one


#8

The Maldive peaches


#9

The Republic of Maldives


#10

That’s Madeira.


#11

It is quite expensive to go there, yes.


#12

I went when I was maybe 17 and did loads of diving and it was possibly the best week of my life. There was a big tarantula in my bedroom one night also


#13

No that’s a cake


#14

memorable?


#15

Maldives, Mauritius and Seychelles makes me think of wedding couples. And families who boast about their expensive holidays.


#16

No that’s Dundee


#17

Came in to say that ^these three places are all the same place in my mind…


#18

:neutral_face:


#19

Yeah I wonder what % of the Maldives’ western tourist $ is generated by honeymooning couples. Must be 90%.


#20

no, that’s someone who’s just finished chapter four of the dictionary
