Maldives, Dubai, Madrid – What A Week!
I am so tired. SO TIRED!
I’ve had the most incredible week, seeing the most beautiful things and exhausting myself in great YOLO fashion. I want to tell you more, really I do. But my bed is calling my name, my eyelids are cursing me and I’m pretty sure my insta’s speak for themselves. Time is flying (literally), and looking back at the week I have just had, the nerves are beginning to kick in as I have just over two months left till I move back to Cape Town.
So much to send home, so much to leave behind, so much to see, so much to look forward to. The only thing more impossible than leaving this life behind would be staying in it much longer.
My definition of “normal” is quite ridiculous.

Maldives Cast Away
Dress, tshirt, hat – all Mr Price, Jimmy Choo shades from SmartBuyGlasses
Taken at low tide cruising on our way to one of the islands, I braved the end of the boat and had this pic snapped with every hope that I wouldn’t get blown away or lose my favourite hat. My favourite thing about this look though is this fringed crop I bought at Mr Price when I came home on my leave. I love it because it reminds me of those old school fringed dresses with the beads on them, I had a ton of them when I was a kid. They were reserved for beach/pool days, and judging by my last post you can tell I quite enjoy indulging in my inner five year old.
Maldives was beautiful, but as you can see behind me a huge storm was brewing, and we felt its wrath as our boat nearly capsized (yes, really). Despite the weather’s temperament I snorkelled in the turquoise waters among tropical fish, completely in awe that this was real life not the pages of some holiday magazine or national geographic.
Sometimes I think I’m a little too lucky.
