Maldives & Budget. Doesn’t it sound like an oxymoron? I thought so, until I read an interesting piece in the in-flight magazine of BA last Sunday. (I was on my way back from Istanbul, by the way. I have talked about Istanbul here and there, and here again, but I’ll be writing more! There’s a buzzy neighbourhood called Karakoy which is being transformed from a tired area of commercial offices to a hotspot for all things cool. Very interesting.). Back onto the Maldives, on a budget..
