ADVENTURES: MR SMITH | MALDIVES PART 01
Been a bonkers first month here in the Maldives, The Southern and Indian ocean are alive. Constant SE Swells and the occasional SW swell and light winds for this time of year. We have been surfing alone most days staying in the quiet regions. Me and Sophie have been playing a lot of chess, surfing 3 times a day and talking about the future but enjoying the present. We are grateful for our time here and have been meeting some wonderful people. Bhim from Nepal, Mod from the Island of Hitadoo in the southern region are both beautiful souls and as we venture deeper into our stay here we see that the wonders of the waves are mirrored by the people that live here.
I took 5 pairs of shorts with me and it was more than enough, I have given a pair to Mod and he is buzzing. The Australians that I see ask about them and they like them, they like home made and they like that I support good ethics and nice people.
I am lucky but my heart still beats for the Celtic lands.
