To a place far far away

I'm dying to go on a real holiday . . . by this I mean lay on white sand beaches, sip cocktails, go shopping, make the most of the hotel room and generally relax in 28 degree or more sunshine!

I've wanted to visit the Maldives ever since I first saw it on a surf documentary years ago and I think I found the perfect spot to relax in such tranquil surroundings (ie: No one around for 10kms each direction)

The Alila Villas Hadahaa
I'm going to the let the photos speak for themselves as I can't put such beauty, bliss and 
sheer indulgence into words.

Check out
for info they have resorts all over Bali as well.  

If I have one regret in life it's not visiting Colombia when we were traveling through South America a few years ago.  I have heard nothing but amazing things and seen nothing but beautiful pictures of the people and places.  A far cry from what the media will have you thinking the country is.  Look at the beautiful Rosario Islands off the coast of Cartagena.  A lot quainter than the ultra luxurious Alila.  The Hotel Isla de Pirata (Pirate Island Hotel) pictures still amaze me.

A stay at this place would have made our trip feel like a tropical holiday than a travel 'expedition'.  Not that I didn't enjoy almost every moment we had in South America.
