We recently visited Kauai. Its the oldest of the Hawaii islands. We picked it over the other islands because its one the least commercialized of the Hawaii islands and of the most beautiful. The island is full of mountains and gets some of the highest rainfall in the world. The result of this is that the island has some spectacular waterfalls.
Unfortunately, our trip to paradise was interrupted by health issues. Both my wife and I got sick for 4 out of the 7 days we were there and this limited the pictures I could take. Nevertheless, below is a glimpse of the beautiful island
The Hindu Monastery in Kauai is one of the most peaceful places I’ve visited and one of my favorite temples
Five Elements he said. Five elements- Earth, Sky, Water, Wind and Fire (Sun) working in perfect harmony made this place in Tulum, Mexico the perfect place to meditate for this college student who was a touring with a yoga group. Hidden away in a corner in the Tulum Ruins, this is one of the most spectacular spots I’ve seen.
If you ever get a chance to visit south Mexico, I would strongly recommend this.
As you might have noticed. I’ve been MIA from the blog for over a month. The reason is that I’ve been busy getting married and enjoying my honeymoon =) I normally dont usually post personal pictures here or on my Flickr but I think this event calls for an exception because it will likely change my future and maybe even my photography.
So after a fun filled, but tiring 4 day long Indian wedding, we wanted to go to a relaxing place. After much research, we decided to go to the Coco Palm resort in Maldives and boy did we make the right choice. I had heard that Maldives is popularly known as ‘Heaven on Earth’ but honestly I hadnt expected anything like this. Never have I ever seen a place so clean, water so clear and calm, so many stars in the sky, nature at its finest. If I had one word to describe the place, it would be “Spectacular”.
Starting from the flight itself, we had saw a gorgeous rainbow and dolphins swimming in the ocean.
We had decided to stay in a over water villa. There are only a few places in the world that have these. Ours had an infinity pool overlooking the Indian ocean with thousands of fish and coral reefs underneath. The icing on the cake was that the villa had an outdoor bed and an outdoor shower!
The Maldives is just a series of little island on the world map: around 1,200 islands, about 90 of which are occupied by resorts. The country’s main occupation is tourism. Maldives ranks among the greenest countries in the world and justifiably so because no other country faces a threat of extinction like Maldives. The highest point of land in the entire country is just over two metres! Every inch of rise in ocean water level brings the country closer to extinction. Being there, I learned the importance of saving the environment even more.
Ultimately, I’d strongly urge everyone to visit Maldives at least once in their lifetime. Its truly ‘Heaven on Earth’
