When these Maldives Islands drone pics popped up in my Facebook feed, there is no way I could resist asking my friend Colin if I could share them with you all.
I met Colin in a hostel in Kraków, Poland, and have been following his travels through the UK and Europe ever since. He recently had the genius idea of taking his drone along on a trip to the Maldives, and I was blown away by what he managed to capture!
Colin stayed on Veligandu Island, and spent 2 weeks scuba diving in the crystal clear waters and chilling with cocktails by the pure white sand beaches. What better place is there to escape from life’s pressures than a tiny, tranquil, isolated island, positioned an entire 600 kilometres (370 miles) away from the nearest continental land?
Seriously, this has got to be one of the best ever uses of a drone. These photos are just unbelievably awesome.
Have you been to the Maldives, or is it on your to-do list? Share your thoughts with us in the comments!
