Since January 10th 2013, I’ve had the incredible privilege of living and working in one of the most beautiful countries in the world – the Maldives! I work as an English Teacher and the Head of the English Department at Lale Youth International School, based in Hulhumalé. I live in Malé, the capital island, so I commute to and from work by ferry. You can see the island locations on the map below. The capital island is also a short speed boat trip away from the many luxurious resorts that the Maldives is most famous for. Being able to escape to dream-like tropical islands on the weekends has been a huge perk of living and working in the Maldives!
