M is for the Maldives. This archipelago is normally regarded as a rather exclusive destination, especially for honeymooners, but you get a very different perspective when your visit is work-related. Although our workshop was on a single island, we visited a couple of other islands to gather field evidence. I went walking one lunch-time while the others in the group had a siesta, and I met these two boys on the beach. They automatically assumed that everyone in the world is an islander. Their first words were, “Which island are you from, Mr?” I love it!

M is also for Monaco. We went there to celebrate a significant birthday of my wife. It was novel, warm, and exotic, but it is such a small country that we soon felt the need to spill over into neighbouring France. It was worth visiting though, even if just to tick-off one of Europe’s smallest countries.
