Scavenger Hunt

I've always wanted to be a part of a scavenger hunt, but since I live in Maldives where having fun apparently is only going out for coffees and staring at people, I had to do something about it. I decided to host a scavenger hunt of my own for some of my cooler friends who love to have fun and not question everything. They were really excited for it and so the planning began.
the list. I reduced it to 18 items since the time was limited.
I planned it as an un-birthday hunt since I could not have a 21st birthday party. I contacted 21 people, got a list of 21 items (things to find, things to photograph and things to video) and got three teams and it was all going really good until I had to postpone it several times due to random things and people being busy. 

On 16th, we finally had it even though some people could not make it. We had two teams and started at exactly 4. One of the rules was that we couldn't use cycles/bikes so everyone walked and we had two hours to find all items. Team A was Delta and they had all guys who were totally competitive and our team had three girls and three guys and we were called The ScAvengers.

It was really fun trying to find the stuff, photographing  video-ing and finding famous people. We had a few hurdles like video-ing police guys because they could not be video-d in uniform but Delta found a genius way around it. At the end, Delta won with 210 points while we only managed to get 195. They won lots of chocolates and we all shared and it was two hours well spent.

I hope we can pull off one of these each month with more people. It shall be so much fun.


  1. The proposing to a stranger sounded most fun to me..

    1. It was actually the most fun. Our teammate proposed to a random guy at the street and his reaction was priceless. :D
