Okay so we went all out this October break. Normally, when we travel it is backpacker, budget style, but this trip we decided to opt for 5 star luxury. Ironically, when talking to colleagues about our accommodations, they informed me that we were doing the “backpacker trip of the Maldives”. In short, a trip to the Maldives is all about the luxury. There is no limit to the indulgences that can be sought out here. Even though we were apparently on the cheapest trip available there, our Mastercard got a workout and we felt like royalty. Here is a summary of our trip through photos.
