Laamu – Two Thousand Isles

2k Journal: Life in Maamendhoo


Our final island in the atoll was Maamendhoo, and the place we had been told was the capital of Laamu fishing….the big smoke(d fish). It was also the first island in the atoll that wasn’t part of the outer ring […]

2k Journal: Hithadhoo Hits


So, we’re riding the logistical rollercoaster back to Addu from Laamu, all the way up to Male’ and then back down to Suvadive. …but before the cities drown out the sights and sounds of our final two islands in Laamu…remember […]

2k Journal: Planet Kunahandhoo


Arriving on any island on a Friday morning – when people are taking it easy before the midday sermons, chicken curry and picnic trips – can often be a lonely experience. But arriving at Kunahandhoo is even more so, due […]

Story: Fly Iruvai


As we took our first tour of Maavah during our recent visit, journeying up to the western wetland areas, we finally began to ask ourselves…’okay, what’s with all the dragonflies?’. Ever since working on the Fuvahmulah wetlands project earlier this […]

2k Journal: Maavah Moosun


We arrived in Maavah in the driving drain and, despite the dueling moosuns’ attempts to wash out our trip to Laamu’s third largest community, we had a fine couple of days there. Maavah, we’re told, has always been a good […]

Story: Fangi Factory

We’ve already started on our western loop of the Laamu trip, but before we get into anything new, we need to talk about our visit to Mundoo. Despite this being the smallest population in the atoll (just over 200 people), […]

2k Journal: Moments in Maabaidhoo


Our time in Maabaidhoo earlier this week seemed to pass very quickly, just a few fleeting moments backed up with the notes on Dan’s phone and images on Naj’s SD card. Before they get lost with the rest, we’ve added […]

Story: Beys Spa


Now we got very excited when we stumbled upon this story while in Laamu Kalaidhoo. When we were told about the beys kulhi by almost everyone, we were expecting some sort of wetland area with a few medicinal plants dotted around. When […]

2k Journal: Dreaming of Dhanbidhoo


Some places in the Maldives just have that effect…you know, the kind of place you start to miss while you’re still there. Some places drift back into your mind as you’re dodging vehicular terrorists on the Addu link road, or […]

Story: Island Caretakers


Some of our favourite stories on Two Thousand Isles are the ones we didn’t expect to write. The ones that just leap out at us when we’re not expecting it. This is definitely one of those. We were on a […]
