I'm in the Maldives with the Girlfriend until the eighth of March. I highly recommend the Maldives if you're looking for a place for a romantic getaway and have any interest in marine life and snorkeling, and have five or ten thousand dollars burning a hole in your pocket.
Girlfriend loves beaches but like a lot of Russian girls she is rather afraid of water and boats.
We had a typical exchange today.
"I saw a sea turtle!" I exclaimed, stepping from the turquoise waters, mask in hand.
"Were you scared?" She asked with wide eyes.
After I stopped laughing I said, "Turtles aren't dangerous."
"They are! My cousin had a turtle named Styopa and it bit my granny on the finger once!"
"She probably made it angry."
"She was feeding it cabbage!"
"I won't feed them," I promised.
