I’ve been getting a lot of questions about my most recent trip. Among my friends I’m known for the detail and research I put into my itineraries. Below is the raw, copied and pasted replica of the itinerary I built for this trip. Please bare in mind that $1600 of this budget accounts for the Maldives alone. In addition, you can tweek your activity budget and do things for a lot less, there are dessert sand dune tours for as low as $40 for example.
