We are off once again to the Maldives today! For the first time ever, we will be visiting the Maldives twice within a twelve month period for gathering information and material.
Claudio Lugli Island Shirt [ABOVE] – Unfortunately, the Claudio Lugli fish shirt has been out of stock since its introduction, but this latest style is a reasonable alternative for your Maldives resort wardrobe.

Over 75% of diners selected the first food they saw, and the first three foods a person encountered in the buffet comprised 66% of all the foods they took. Serving the less healthy foods first led diners to take 31% more total food items.”
Sauna with a View – We saw these at a local outlet and thought they would be perching on jetty or even just waterside of a beach so people could look out over the ocean while soaking in the heat.
Moveable Bed – Soneva Jani’s retractable roofs bring the outside in, but this innovation brings
