Just a few minutes ago I received a press release from Connections, a well known travel agency in Belgium. They have a new brochure to offer, one on Sri Lanka and the Maldives. And they included a picture of the latter. This kind of scenery never ceases to amaze me. You look at pictures like this and you immediately switch to holiday mode. Can you see yourself swimming in this blue ocean? Can you see yourself drinking a cocktail in a hammock with these kinds of views?

I don’t know man. Honestly I don’t know. At first glance you say: of course. It does look amazing, doesn’t it? Perhaps the most beautiful scenery you’ve ever seen. Perhaps this is the ultimate vacation dream for you. Perhaps perhaps perhaps. But if you really think about it. Wouldn’t you get bored out of your fu秒ng mind after two days? Or maybe that’s the point of a holiday to the Maldives. What do you think? It does look romantic. It might be the perfect honeymoon destination. But what do you do after sex? Hang out in the local bar with the local people? Too bad, there is no local bar and there are no local people. Only local fish. So you catch them and eat them in order to have enough strength to have sex again.

Ah, who am I kidding? This sounds like the ideal vacation. (Prices for 6 days starting from 595 euro, www.connections.be)
