The other side of the Maldives

Vaadhoo - Maldives - February 2017

For some people the Maldives mean relaxing and after some days it might become somewhat boring. The challenge is to turn this boredom into a state of seeing and discover if there is more than just drinks, water and sunshine. Believe it or not, but there is more to see and discover. The Maldives are not just resorts, there are locals living as well on the Islands. There are streets, houses, graffiti, elections and people.

In this gallery I show the other side of the Maldives. This side is not as polished as the resorts for tourists, it is the other reality of the paradise.

Ella - Sri Lanka - March 2017

After a long walk in the mountains and tea field of Ella (Sri Lanka) I met this man on a railroad. He was selling mango’s to people walking back to the village of Ella. Of course I bought some, it was a long way back to the place where I stayed.
