The Quiet Island (Conrad Maldives)


Wearing: ASOS maxi dress


Life on the island is pretty easy. You wake up, you eat, you dive/snorkel, you eat some more, you wallow in the pool, you have sunset drinks, you eat some more...

There are two islands at the Conrad, the main island and the 'quiet' island. I'm sure you can guess which one this is. The quiet island seems to play host to all manner of feathered friends, from curious little water hens (how adorable are they? I went on numerous excursions around the quiet island, seeking to befriend each one I came across like some kind of crazed cat bird lady) to scores of squawking seagulls and lone, pensive herons.

It's the perfect side of the resort for long, aimless walks under a canopy of palms and for swinging gently on suspended daybeds and cushioned benches, dozing off to the sound of the ocean. In other words, the place I now conjure up in my mind when mentally escaping to my 'happy place'.
