Just a cool Look

Today I have kind of new style ;)

This season are jackets and coats in metallic look very in vogue. Actually, this jacket wasn’t in my wish list. But I fell in love with immediately in the moment I saw it by Promod, and to be honest, quality has more convinced me to buy it.

The jacket I combined with a pair of jogging pants. Yeah … in past years if somebody used to wear jogging pants in everyday life, was described with no taste for fashion by society. Now, if you do not wear them, you are not fashionable enough :) :)

Not to look to sporty in this outfit, I decided to wear ankle boots. My new bag is by MCM – what I like about MCM is the rabbit :P

I think that will wear this outfit for my trip next week ;) I find it very stylish and cool …. But then in combination with sneakers ;)

Kind of Bee

Hi Guys,

finally a new look I have managed to post again. Last time I don‘t have much time or to tired or I don‘t like taking pictures in the cold. But sometimes each of us comes to such a point.

In this post I wear my new coat. The colors of the coat remind me a bee …. So just right for the upcoming spring. The bag is new and I also have it in the smaller version, but because it is so cool I decided to save for a bigger one too ;) Girls problems and kind of good investment ;) I also sold a lot of old stuff to get it. Now I have a lot of space in my closset :P

Hi Guys,

Unfortunately, I have not had much time for my blog lately :( Sorry for that! But I think positive …. I will do my best ;)

Today I carry nothing new in my todays look, just some old pieces. The bag it’s sold out , to be exact, almost all the bags in my closet. I am not a collector so I sell at the right time all my old stuff, for buying new things ;)

What about you guys?

Male, Maldives

Hi Guys,

As I wrote in my last blog post, I visited Male, the capital of the Maldives before I took my flight back home. Yes, I am a capital junkie. No matter where I fly, I always try to make a detour to the capital of the country.

What should I tell about Male? ;) It was definitely cool to see Male, but I never want to go there again ;) Did I like it there? No, not at all ;) But the city is very interesting, crowded with people and motorcycles, dirty and hardly a tourist there and like everywhere on the indigenous islands in the Maldives you find at (almost) every corner plastic!!!! ;) In two hours I could walk around the whole island – it also had some nice plastic-free corners.

At the airport I was able to leave my bags each for $ 6 per day and for a dollar I took the ferry to the Male and after ten minutes I was already on the island of Male. Because I was hungry, I first looked for a place to eat ;) And then, refreshed with a lot of power I went to explore the island. As always, I dragged myself in the wrong direction. Although I’ve read before that you should not turn into strange corners on Male :) After running aimlessly over the island, and was dredged by many men (which was not great), I’ve finally opened Google Maps and took the way in the direction to Republic Square, on my way passed the National Stadium, National Museum and the Buisness School. On the way I also found a really nice park: Rasrani Bageecha, where I had to pay 5 dollars to stay – only for the locals the park is free … On the end I visited the fish and the fruit market ;) Well, that was quite a cool experience … Shopping in Male I did not succeed, I have not even seen a HM or mango there;)

Nevertheless, I am glad that I could see Male ;) On the way to the airport, I met my travel agent ;) He had that day off and showed me the artificial island Hulhumale on the other side of the airport ;) Well, everywhere more plastic and that just breaks the paradise feeling …

I am looking forward to March, because then I will see Hanimadhoo again and live again in the Bare Foot Eco Hotel ;)

Bye for now!

Hanimadhoo, Maldives 2018

Hi Guys,

The Maldives have always been my dream; at least for the past 15 years or so … In June 2018 I finally booked a trip ;) On the end October 2018 I started my trip … Since November I am home …. Was it worth?…. Yasss, it was the best two weeks of holidays I ever had!!! I was sooo free and yes, it’s really a paradise there!

Why did I choose Hanimadhoo Island? Because it’s not a typical resort island. The island is inhabited by locals and therefore it’s possible to get to know the real Maldivian life. Another advantage for me was that I didn’t had to watch a wedding every single day – by the way, not a single one … ;) And there were plenty of other solo travelers, like me … so you didn’t had the feeling, like you were alone there, and I met a lot of nice people. One more reason was…. to get more simplicity… I am really tired from the luxury world… That’s why I opted for the Bare Foot Eco Hotel. This is a really cool hotel … Can I write something about the hotel in two words? … hmmm … The value for money was brilliant and the hotel was simple but has it’s PEPP. Google it … You will be surprised! I enjoyed it so much that I fly there again in March ;) Yeah, it’s crazy ;)

Everyone told me that after a week on the Maldives I will be bored… Hmmmm, that depends on what you do … I barely had time to stay on the beach and do nothing ;) I had a quite tight schedule … In the morning I went for yoga, then – during the first week – on different snorkeling trips every day and in the second week I snorkeled and started diving. Yes, finally my dream has become a hobby. After some bad experiences in previous holidays, I did’t wanted to dive anymore. But thanks to Luca – the Diving Instructor of the Bare Foot – I tried again and became a Scuba Diver :P Yeah, I’m totally crazy about diving and it’s the main reason why I want back on the Maldives – I want to dive ;) I need warm water and my Luca instructor :P

I also got to know the 16-year-old local boy Eiman at the hotel and visited his family in the village ;) Yes, the conditions for living are extremely different, but they do not know anything else and they are all so happy and satisfied … you definitely need NO Gucci and NO Prada to be happy ;) In some moments I was a bit shy about my consumption :(

There are about 2000 people living in the village of Hanimadhoo, but I felt that there are only 100 people in total … There are 2 supermarkets … quite small, about the size of a living room ;) Also a school, police, airport and hospital … A few coffees and … incredible amounts of plastic waste … everywhere!!! That’s a disadvantage on a local island. As soon as you walk out of the hotel, there is plastic garbage everywhere. I think that’s a shame … people could at least collect the plastic and not just throw it on the ground …. Unfortunately, people do not understand that and do not know that they live in a paradise.

Now my entire consumption goes into the procurement of a diving equipment and in March it starts again! See you soon Maldives!

PS: Before I went home, I decided to visit Male – the capital of the Maldives. This has convinced me Aini – the girl at the reception … and it was a good idea … You can then read about this in my next post ;)
