The stewardess presented us with a certificate for crossing the equator as we descended into Gan airport. Yes, it’s another 70-minute flight after you get to Male. Worth it? Without a doubt – no gain without pain right! What do you gain? This lit…….

Now that I’ve stayed at this super luxury hotel, I can thankfully strike one thing of my bucket list (phew)! Yes, this is one of ‘those’ hotels. I mean, how often do you stay in a hotel that has just been voted the world’s best right? And best …….
