New Year's Eve in Maldives

Spending the new year in paradise

In retrospect, I have spent the new year in 2012 working until 5 am and in 2013 spent it sleeping. I have promised myself that I would do something a little more memorable than that the following year, not because we celebrate New Year per se as we don’t. But because I want to live an exciting life and nothing could be more exciting than spending [any] day in a paradise like no other.

I was determined to make that happen that I booked all our flights and hotels 11 months ahead. And I could not be more thrilled that it became into realization. I was able to end 2013 and greet the new year of 2014 in the islands of Maldives!**

Since it’s a Muslim country, the nation doesn’t really celebrate the New Year. Instead, the hotels just do a little something for their guests who do celebrate it. In our island, there was just a simple bon fire and a 2013 sign was lit up with fire as we counted down to 2014. I was just happy to have spent it with my 2 sisters.
