Longing – April 7th Personal Writing

The Maldives- The country of blues. I have always wanted to go deep-sea diving, so I thought, which place could be better than the Maldives. It is a chain of 1192 islands, located south-west of Sri Lanka and India, in the Indian Ocean. The Maldives is known for its environmental beauty, water sports, and laid back beaches. The deep-sea diving sessions include watching the vibrant coral reefs, swimming between sea turtles and reef fishes. The Maldivian culture is incredible, its eye-catching folk dancing is often held on the beach.  I wish to go to the Maldives for a relaxing vacation. Waking up and having a refreshing breakfast, going for a swim, or doing some watersports, and enjoying sleeping on the beaches with seaside dining, it would be the most delightful vacation.

  1. Divya, I like this post. It could be really good if you spent more time developing it with details. What would you eat for breakfast? Would the water be calm, or are there big waves? What waterspouts? Would you sleep on the beach on the sand? In a tent? In a beachside cabin? Would the “seaside dining” be indoors, or outside on a patio? What would be on the menu? You mention folk-dancing; what does it look like? Is there music? What kind of music? Etc.

    Also: What does “country of blues” mean? Are you talking about music, or the colour blue, or sadness, or . . . ?

  2. Hello Divya, I enjoyed reading about the Maldives in your post. I would just like to point out two small grammatical errors that I too only recently learned about. Firstly, when you use “-” in place of a colon, it should be “–” instead. The single-dashed hyphen is mostly used to join words together, and is actually a completely different thing from “–“. Secondly, you should not capitalize words that come after the dash. So, instead of “The Maldives- The country of blues,” it should be “The Maldives– the country of blues.”

  3. hello Divya, I enjoyed reading your personal writing post about the Maldives. The only thing that I wish you did was give a deeper explanation of the activities you would be doing there. overall this post gives you a good image in your head of what you’re explaining. Good job
