Dipping your toes in liquid turquoise...

Who feels like taking just a tad of an escape?

It's Monday...why not?

How about the Maldives...

Particularly the Taj Exotica Resort

Yes. Let's





The Resort is a sublime fusion of

luxury and nature.

Accommodation is a choice between

villas built entirely over water

or beach villas...


The Maldives is like a string of pearls scattered over the
deep blue Indian Ocean on the equator...
These 1000 islands surround lagoons in
infinite shades of
blue and turquoise.
and dazzling underwater coral gardens.




At the Taj...The living is easy, balmy.

No schedules...if you choose.



The individual villas have a
Malasian/Pan American vibe.
Centered.
All about comfort.





Indulge yourselves...Imagine
a warm tub...maybe a glass of wine
and this for a view.
I think there is a good chance it will clear the cobwebs


...Or...Maybe you are more of the
shower au natural type...
amidst tropical flora and fauna

Little gifts of color...


and nature around every turn.

Pink and turquoise sunsets blanket your day...

...And your day wasn't too taxing...

...By the way.




Go ahead...escape a little bit.

It's fun getting to know you a little. I did a volunteer program with pregnant teens,too, but it was years ago. I was a lamaze coach/mentor. It was a huge learning ecperience for me. In a yikes! kinda way :)
