Guest House: Wave Sound…Addu’s Oasis


Story number three in our guest house section is, fittingly, the recently-opened ‘Wave Sound’ by 3S in Addu’s Maradhoofeydhoo area. Though this one is close to home for us, it’s really like stepping into another world entirely – a mini-resort […]

2k Journal: Naj’s First Exhibition


With the South Asian Travel Awards 2017 taking place this weekend in Addu’s Equator Village, we thought it would be the perfect time to hold an exhibition of Naj’s work, celebrating the best of Addu for all the people visiting. […]

Story: Innes and Islands


Just when you think you’ve heard of everything written about the Maldives (in English, at least) you discover something new. Hammond Innes’ 1965 novel – The Strode Venturer – partly set in Addu, strongly suggested the English author had been […]

Story: Booming Buma


Sparked by a picture spotted in Suvadive Cafe, here in Addu, more people than we expected remembered being unibrow-ed as kids. We soon got hold of the original images and found our own victim model to recreate this joined eyebrow […]

Story: Memoirs of a Ge


Long overdue story about our home base here in Seenu Hithadhoo. There’s not too many houses like this one left, a blend of old and new memories, stories, and people! So, make yourself comfortable, just remember to take your shoes […]

Story: Birds of a Feather


The rain refused to stop this week, but most of our southern snaps are still dry. So, with a little help from the dhondheeni, we spent a couple of days reflecting on the crows of paradise. They’re unloved anywhere, and largely unseen […]

2k Journal: Finding Yaahunbaraas


A post in our 2k Journal/blog about another story on the page isn’t something we’ve done before (might be getting a bit meta), but our recent story on Yaahunbaraas is one we are most proud of. It’s certainly our longest, […]

Kabbohera Crossing


Here’s some pics from our trip to Kabbohera, the tiny islet just a few hundred yards across the shallow lagoon from Seenu Hithadhoo. After a short dinghy ride to the shallows, we squished our way across the reeds for quarter […]

VIDEO: Making Kaashi Theyo


This is the video we made to go with our story, ‘Striking Oil‘, about the production of coconut oil in the Maldives. Thanks to Naj’s family for showing us how it’s done.

Mihaaru Travelogue: Seeing the Second City


This week’s travelogue journeys past the obvious differences between the Maldives’ two cities and onto the more subtle observations…such as tourism development and pelvis analogies (which would actually leave Gan in a very awkward position!!). As shown last week, initial […]
