Honeymoon, Maldives, Uncategorized, Wedding HONEYMOON IN THE MALDIVES – cocktails on the beach 31 August 2009

Most days were spent lazing around before dinner-time, so what better way to chill out than an icy cold cocktail on the beach? A bonus – you get a wooden box containing a portable fan, Evian water spray and cold wet towels.. just so you’re comfortable 🙂 And comfy we were, chatting and having a drink whilst watching the sunset and listening to the waves lap at the sand.

I actually can’t remember the last time we sat down and watched the sunset and whiled away time. Perhaps…. never? There’s much to be said about putting life on Pause sometimes and just enjoying the moment. Even better if that moment is facilitated by the Shangri-La 😛

Wooden box of goodies

Lounging around

Gorgeous colours!

Yes those are cornflakes – it was my avocado and vanilla ice cream drink!

Pizza and amazing amazing fish & chips

CHEERS 🙂

Chicken kebabs, bread rolls and more cocktails

Another day, another cocktail(s)

      I really liked it, so thick and creamy!

      The songs are almost like african/tribal music.. lots of drums and chanting stuff. It was cool to watch 🙂
