No news, no shoes and apparently no real time either!! Yes please 😍❀🏝🌴❀ . . . . I was reminiscing with some friends a few days ago about my time on Villingili Island, and I had to laugh at how for the first 24 hours, mum and I had no idea what the time was. My phone said one thing, mums phone said something different, my time conversion was incorrect because, and, did you know that the Maldives has its own time?! ⌚ It's called Island time, and it's genius if not a little confusing when you've just come from a time zone that you're not used to anyway πŸ˜‚ . I have to admit I quite enjoyed and relished in the fact I didn't know what the time was - the ultimate way to disconnect from the world. 🌏❀⌚❀🌎

Happy Valentine's Day you lovely lot ❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀❀ I had a hawt date tonight...WITH THE GYM 🀣❀ good job I love it! . . . . I always liked the idea of going to the Maldives, on that perfect honeymoon or romantic trip. πŸ₯‚πŸ’‘πŸ‘«πŸΎ But seeing as I haven't been so successful finding and holding down a significant other, no country is off limits. I'll fly to wherever the wind takes me. . . What's your ideal romantic location?

The further I travel the more I want to see. πŸ˜ŠπŸ€—πŸ‘€βœˆβ€πŸŒ΄ . . . . I have all these crazy ideas like climbing Killimanjaro, hiking Machu Picchu, sky diving in Australia, sand boarding in South America and diving with sharks in South Africa. Truth is they aren't crazy, not really, experiencing the no shoes, no news life in the Maldives made me realise that actually anything is possible, even the things you thought would be unobtainable. . . Each day I woke up to these incredible views, experiencing amazing things and all I kept thinking was I cannot believe it's me having these experiences. I never thought it would happen for me. . . Sri Lanka and Maldives were just the start...I'm so ready for a wicked 2019!!! ✈✈✈❀❀❀ . . What are your travel goals? . . . @travelimpressions_int

You guys...show of hands who's ever used a #goprodome? πŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎπŸ™ŒπŸΎ . I can tell you now it's not fricking easy to get those perfect shots we see all over insta, and it's EVEN harder when you can't touch the bottom of the ocean and you're doing it with one hand...see the result ⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️⬆️ . Of maybe 100 photos this was the best... I got one reasonably acceptable shot then gave up. . πŸ’­πŸ’¬ Now if I could have just got my mother in the ocean things might have been different πŸ˜‚πŸ€£πŸ˜‚πŸ€£ . How long will you keep going for that perfect shot? πŸ“Έ

I don't know about you but I just love the fact Mr Turtle got himself a little friend β€πŸ’œπŸ’πŸ’πŸŸπŸŸ . . . . . I have to admit this was one of my favourite moments in the Maldives, snorkelling with turtles πŸ’πŸ’πŸ’πŸŠπŸΎβ€β™€οΈπŸŠπŸΎβ€β™€οΈ I actually had no intention of doing such an activity, my plan beforehand was to scuba dive, a first for me! I made my way to the dive centre all confident and ready to be signed up, until they made the single most important point, which is scuba diving is dangerous for anyone with any nervous system problems. Cue my MS brain πŸŽ—- "sh!t" 🀬 since I hadn't got the all clear to dive from my consultant this instantly ruled me out. 😭 My rebellious head kept thinking "I'll just do it anyway, I'm fine, I feel great, what harm could it do?", but then my sensible head kicked in and I had to make the decision not to dive...hey I wasn't about to die in the Maldives. πŸ‡²πŸ‡»πŸŒ΄πŸ–πŸπŸ˜ . My dreams had been shattered, until the dive team suggested this great alternative. I'll be honest I felt elated πŸ€— and crushed 😒 then elated again 😍 all within 5 seconds of each other. This experience will stay with me forever, the coral was incredible, and there were so many turtles just minding their own business, we even had sharks swimming around us (non human eating ones I was assured). Isn't this what life is all about trying new experiences and making as many memories as possible?! . πŸ’‘ So note to self and anyone else travelling with any kind of illness: I must stop thinking I'm invincible πŸ’ͺ🏾 and I don't have an incurable neurological illness πŸ’‰πŸ’Š and get these things checked before I travel 😊 for a happier travel experience

So Maldives...let's talk! πŸ‡²πŸ‡»πŸ˜πŸ–β˜€οΈπŸ . . . . Ever since I got back I've been longing to feel how I felt on this very day sitting on this very beach. The emotions I felt were out of this world. It's hard coming back to reality. Sometimes I do feel like I'm the only person in the world that falls as hard as I do, in many aspects of life. Routine is a challenge for me...many need it, but I'm not one of them. I thrive on the not knowing! I truely feel I left my heart right there...I think I'll have to go back just to go and get it. How do you guys deal with the holiday blues? .

Well I couldn't let the day pass without posting about Australia ❀ Happy Australia Day to my Aussie beauts. πŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί . . . . When I was there 4 years ago, I had the best day Australia Day at the Yabun Festival in Sydney. What is this? I hear you ask! Understandably you may not know. This festival is the annual celebration of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander cultures. It's a fantastic event showcasing some of the best indigenous music performers in the country, incredible live music, traditional dances, arts & crafts and much much more. πŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΎπŸ’ƒπŸΎ If you're ever in Australia on Australia Day swing by and check it out. Personally I loved seeing some culture injected into Australia like this, sadly I lost all of my pictures from that day or I'd be posting that instead. Australia I miss you! πŸ€—πŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ίβ€πŸ˜ŠπŸ˜‰β˜€οΈπŸ‡¦πŸ‡Ί

Galle Fort...possibly the strongest fort ever made?!
Well maybe that's not true,
Galle Fort...possibly the strongest fort ever made?! Well maybe that's not true, but this fort is pretty special and I'll tell you why... . . . . Back in 2004, everyone across the world would have watched in horror as news of the deadliest Tsunami ever recorded spread across our channels. I remember it clearly, the heart break and devastation. All those lives lost by something we knew nothing about. What even is a Tsunami? Who had ever even heard of it? Galle Fort is special because it is the only structure in this area to have survived the 2004 Tsunami. . Standing here looking out into the Indian Ocean, made my heart swell with sadness, at the thought of all those people in Galle and the surrounding areas looking at exactly what I was looking at in terror, and undeniable fear. It also saddened me to realise that somehow I had missed the fact that Sri Lanka was so severely affected. πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡°πŸ‡±πŸ‡° . I'm pleased to say that slowly, but surely the southern part of Sri Lanka, is building itself back up, but those lives of some 30,000+ people will never be forgotten πŸ™πŸΎπŸ‡±πŸ‡°

Riding
If you didn't go in a tuk tuk were you even in Sri Lanka?! πŸ˜‚πŸ˜πŸ˜ŽπŸ€—πŸ€”πŸ‡±πŸ‡° . . . Riding in a tuk tuk is a fun and exciting way to travel, in Sri Lanka...I couldn't wait to get myself in one. They are far more popular and cheaper than taxis, but my goodness the drivers are pretty crazy, they pretty much 'think' they own the roads. My mind was blown! 🀯 I would recommend for short journeys only, and just for the experience πŸ˜“πŸ€ͺ . . . What country did you witness the worst driving?
