From Maldives to Thailand we left paradise early in the morning.
A speedboat brought us to Male airport around 7:15 and we arrived there 6:45; you wonder why we went back in time?
We just crossed the time-zone border. Resort time was an hour ahead. Crazy shit!
The 12th was our longest flying day until now. Nearly 12 hours we spent in the plane, but music, fantastic take-away food from the resort, ipod, sleep, stories and backgammon were always with us. We really get used to fly long trips.
Jorn, our pilot, made good work bringing us in three legs to our next destination. We left Male, landed in Mumbai, then in Chiang Mai to do immigration and refueling, and finally landed in Udon Thani, a little city more east.
