My wanderings in the Maldives took me to two local islands.
I went to Dhigurah twice: the first time for the MWSRP whale shark volunteering project, and again to visit a fellow volunteer-turned-friend who ended up working for that very same project. It says something: I rarely travel to the same place twice, let alone within months of each other!
I also went to Dhiffushi to spend some layover days; this was when I began asking the questions around travel and sustainability.
Both times yielded memorable lifetime encounters with marine wildlife, incredible paradise atoll vistas, as well as meaningful and curious friendships.
Here are the stories from the time I spent in the beautiful archipelago of the Maldives. Enjoy!
