[Photo Journal] Hammock Love in Maldives


Myra here.

We are excited to share photographs every Tuesday from our recent or long-ago travels, or just everyday stuff that appealed to our mindful eye and sharp sensibilities as captured through fleeting images.

Hammock Love in Maldives

For my fortieth birthday and my daughter’s week-long school break, we had a Maldives getaway. This will be the start of a series of posts on Maldives – simply because I have fallen in love with the place. These photos were taken by my 14 year old girl who has quite the keen eye when it comes to taking pictures.

For our first full day in the island, our kind and charming host took us on a tour of the Mahibadhoo island.


I was particularly struck – not just by the crystalline blue of the beach – but also the hammocks that are set up under the shade of the trees, close to the beach, perfect for chit-chat among the locals.


Don’t they look relaxing?


One could deduce the laid-back vibe of this place from these hammocks alone. 🙂

Prior to moving to the Middle East, she lived for eleven years in Singapore serving as a teacher educator. She has edited five books on rediscovering children’s literature in Asia (with a focus on the Philippines, Malaysia, India, China, Japan) as part of the proceedings for the Asian Festival of Children’s Content where she served as the Chair of the Programme Committee for the Asian Children’s Writers and Illustrators Conference from 2011 until 2019. While she is an academic by day, she is a closet poet and a book hunter at heart. When she is not reading or writing about books or planning her next reads, she is hoping desperately to smash that shuttlecock to smithereens because Badminton Is Life (still looking for badminton courts here at UAE - suggestions are most welcome).
