Maldives: A Cool Gust of Wind
If you had a great vacation in the Maldives, you may find that this makes a great magnet to remember your trip. Its use of symbols is an expression of this country's relationship with the culture of the region. The palm tree is sure to bring to mind the weather and vegetation that you enjoyed. The arid air of a desert isn't the most pleasant in the middle of a Summer heat wave, but you can take in the freshness of a cool gust of wind and this travel souvenir from Maldives does just that.
Maldives: an Independent Country in the Indian Ocean
For the last 55 years, the Maldives have been an independent country. It was not always the case as the country was ruled by the Portuguese, the Dutch and the British in different moments of its history. Today, this archipelago of 185 islands is home to a little more than three hundreds thousands inhabitants. Since the 1970`s, it has been transformed into a tourist destination. Travelers can scuba dive because the seawater is so clear that they can have perfect view of all the marine life. If you do not feel like submerging, you can swim and enjoy a picnic with your family on the beach. Travelers can also visit the neighboring islands, the majority of which are uninhabited, here you will forget about civilization. And that is good, at least for a while. This is a great place to fish as this is the locales' main source of income. Fishing at night is a great experience as you will feel that you are the only human being in the whole world. By all means this is a great travel souvenir to take back home.
