1991 I travelled to Maldives to the island Ranali. I went 9000 km by plain, landed in Tashkent for filling fuel, flew over the mountains in India, crossed the Indian Ocean and landed at the airport island of Maldives. From there we went by boat to the island.
This was the first time for me travelling that far. It was a lovely place. I tried diving for the first time, almost stepped on a sting rock, water was warm as in the hot tub, good food, fishing, island hopping. Back then it was not so easy finding good sun block. I searched the pharmacy for a high sun block before I went but the only one I found was a 5. On the plain there they did not sell any, but they did on the way home! I burnt myself badly. So badly that I had to be fully dressed for three days and stay in the shadow. But luckily another lady had a sunblock 20 and gave it to me, so the holiday was saved. On my way home I could buy sun block 20, but then I no longer had any use for it. Went to the capital city on the island Male for shopping and to an empty island for BBQ. At Male I got my camera stolen, but the guide got it back for me. That was lucky because else I would not have all these photos.
