Ashley and I struggled with this one, no really. The Maldives is an immensely beautiful place, and with my poor writing skills, there is no way we could do it justice. Plus, it seems a lot of you out there are envious of our travels, seeing the Maldives will only make it worse. You people are getting kinda scary. Your office lives can't be that horrible, right? (Insert Ashley's cackle here)
So in lieu of Maldives pictures, I have created a post with some of the more colorful scenes we've encountered along the way.
The lovely air of Hangzhou, China. (Lucky you, we don't have a Beijing picture handy.)
The pig suitcase in Halong Bay, Vietnam. How else would you carry a piglet on a ferry for no baggage fee? We later found out that people use pigs as an investment. Buy piglets with savings, fatten them up and sell the hogs. More secure than a Madoff investment.
Geckos everywhere! At first it was cute, but by the 10th hotel with geckos you kinda just ignore them.
Some of you may have seen it before, but this is the Santa Condom at the socially responsible restaurant Cabbages and Condoms in Bangkok, just plain strange. The smiles are alcohol induced.
The monkey who tried to bite my face off, I swear! A macaque apparently thought I was a threat to his pack dominance and charged at me in Ubud, Bali. Not sure if that's a compliment or not.
And finally, a cow grazing pastorally in the middle of Jaipur, India. Reminds me of days back on the farm.
Remember, travelling around the world is not all sunshine and beautiful vistas. Some times it's even hard work .
