The Magnificent Maldives- For Real!

Hello Dear Readers!

I think you all should now that I’m on a plane in pajamas right now.

No, I don’t normally fly like this. But I’m coming back from the Maldives, and somewhere in my mind I thought “oh, I’m heading to a tropical paradise, where I will need only shorts and a bathing suit to wear.”


And nowhere in my mind did I think “perhaps it will be freezing when I return from my tropical vacation to Scotland.”

So I’m in pajamas.

But on the plus side, the Maldives were great! As I’ve said before, I spent a total of four days there. However, while I had originally planned on staying at the Park Hyatt Maldives, I changed my reservation to the Conrad Hilton for a couple different reasons:

1. I have Diamond status at Hilton, which meant I got lots of free things.

2. They have an underwater restaurant.

3. I was able to finagle better free nights at the Hilton than the Park Hyatt.

These things require quite a bit of explanation, so they’ll be done in multi-posts, starting with Diamond status, how I got it, why it’s important, etc, tomorrow.


See you then!
