Sandbank Picnic

I've recently came back from heaven... (yes again!). I took a vacation and spent it partially hiking in Kerala, India and sunbathing in the Maldives. The absolute highlight of the second part of my trip was this sandbank picnic excursion we took with my boyfriend. It was organized by the super nice staff at the resort we stayed at: Kurumba. We had a fun crew taking us to the sandbank (essentially a strip of white sand in the middle of nowhere so a bit scary for me at the beginning), off loading food and drinks for our light seafood salad style lunch and then taking us back to the resort safely. Altogether you spend about two hours on the yacht getting there and back and three to four hours on the sandbank. We took advantage of the beautiful atoll island and explored the coral reef surrounding it. I've never been to a place like this and as I've mentioned before the idea that I'm basically in the middle of the Indian ocean (almost) by myself exploring the underwater world was a challenge but it was well worth it. I got used to it very quickly and eventually I loved the fact that me and a few other people could enjoy such a solitude. How often can a person living in New York feel like this? You guesses it - not that often. Overall I'd give this experience five stars and I'm planning to go back. 
Nedavno jsem se vratila z raje... (ano, uz zase). Vzala jsem si dovolenou a stravila ji castecne vysohorskou turistikou v Kerale, v Indii, a opalovanim se na Maledivach. Zlatym hrebem druhe casti meho vyletu byla tato exkurze na piknik na miniaturnim ostruvku, kam jsem si zajela s pritelem. Exkurzi organizoval nas resort Kurumba, ktery bych celkove mohla vychvalit az do nebes. Zabavna posadka nas vzala na "sandbank" (v podstate takovy pisecny nanos uprostred niceho, coz me z pocatku trochu desilo), kde krome nas vylozila i jidlo a piti na piknik ve stylu salaty-a-morske plody a pozdeji nas bezpecne dopravila zpet do naseho resortu. Vsehovsudy stravite cca dve hodiny cestou na jachte tam a zpet a tri az ctyri hodiny na ostruvku. My jsme nelenili a vetsinou casu venovali podrobnemu pruzkumu koraloveho utesu, ktery tento atol obklopuje. Nikdy jsem na podobnem miste nebyla a jak jsem jiz zminila, mela jsem z myslenky, ze jsem (skoro) sama uprostred indickeho oceanu a zkoumam tamni podvodni svet, docela strach, ale byla to vyzva, ktera se vyplatila. Zvykla jsem si rychle a dokonce se mi ta samota moc zalibila. Kolikrat ma clovek zijici v New Yorku takovy pocit samoty? Uhodli jste, ne tak casto. Pro me byl tenhle zazitek naprosto perfektni a planuji si to zopakovat.

what an adventure! That water, sand (and you) look amazing, but I'm a bit confused, what could possibly be challenging about boating to a remote paradise for a catered lunch? :)

Actually, I think I get what you mean... you were really far out there, away from civilization and if a storm or something like that were to happen there could be a problem. Am I right? Either way, sounds like it may have made it even more exciting :) Great post!
