Flytographer Photographer in Maldives would change your island Vacation 

Your days of awkwardly wielding a selfie stick over the beaches of Maldives are over.  Flytographer, the brainchild of entrepreneur Nicole Smith, is basically the Airbnb for vacation Instagram photos. The app connects tourists, honeymooners, and out-of-towners with local photographers, eliminating the need for selfie sticks and unnecessary “Will you take our photo?” conversations.The idea sparked when Smith, an avid traveler herself, was vacationing in Paris to spend time with her best friend. “Disappointed with awkward selfies and the blurry photos strangers had snapped, we asked a local friend to take some candid shots of us enjoying the city together,” explains Smith in an interview with InStyle. “After 20 minutes of this, I looked at the images on my iPhone and realized I had the best souvenir possible: priceless memories with my BFF in Paris.” Aside from the obvious Instagram value, Smith’s service creates timeless memories while supporting local artists and…

A HONEYMOON IN PARADISE IN THE MALDIVES

The Maldives are regularly touted as the world’s top destination for honeymooners, and as Emma Krieger discovers, the pearls of the Indian Ocean, as they’re popularly known, indeed live up to the hype. Situated to the South West of Sri Lanka, the Maldives are made up of a double chain of 26 atolls, or an impressive 1,192 islands, which form a geographically striking – and from a seaplane, a visually stunning – archipelago.   With its cobalt blue waters, fresh lagoons, sandy white beaches and clichéd swaying palm trees, the Maldives is an idyllic tropical haven for honeymooners, and one of the few places around the world where you can enjoy complete and utter privacy. Arriving in the Maldivian capital of Malé the salt air and startling bright sunshine help to shake away the jetlag cobwebs; the airport transfer to Gasfinolhu Island via speedboat also does the trick.
