My second resort after a week in the Maldives with Maldives TV was one away from the North Male Atoll. About 60 kilometers East of the capital there is a little Atoll called Rasdhoo and coincidentally I had already been there last year on my first visit to Maldives. Rasdhoo itself though is a local island and in 2016 I took a local boat to live like a local in Maldives. This time I traveled to an island next to it: Kuramathi Island Resort.
It was my first time in Maldives and I was about to head to one of the most remote islands of the country. The moment I wanted to check in for my domestic flight to GAN Airport there came someone up to me asking if I was Mr. Grond. Please sir follow me to the lounge… I guess my dream trip just started!

Being invited to a conference in the Maldives was to me like winning the jackpot. Yes I want to come speak at your event in paradise but don’t expect me to fly home straight after. I requested my flight out of Maldives 2 weeks later as I wanted to make the most of this trip and stay as long as I could. When people asked me how long I would stay I answered as long as I get free accommodation! ;)
Going to the Maldives is a dream for everyone that loves paradise destinations. Not only for honeymooners even for very experienced travel writers from all over the world. There was a little confusion about the event taking place or not, but not a single travel writer bailed out as everyone desperately wanted to be included in this amazing event held on such a unique location in the world. The Maldives is a dream destination and although it was my second time visiting this unique country I was excited to board my flight from Europe with Qatar Airways on my way to paradise.
