DITCHING Hot GF to

Michael Phelps
told Bob Costas he wanted to travel the world after retiring from swimming ... and now TMZ has learned that Stop #1 is gonna be AWESOME ... a boys trip to one of the most expensive tropical islands in the world!!

Sources close to the couple tell TMZ, Phelps is planning to visit the Maldives with several close male friends in the near future -- a notoriously expensive island destination for the rich and famous ... so obviously, it's amazing.

But here's the rub -- we're told one person was NOT invited ... Michael's hot GF Megan Rossee.

According to sources, Michael wanted to do a boys' trip after his record-setting Olympic Games in London -- so he's going without the ol' ball and chain.

(FYI -- the Maldives is an archipelago located in the Indian Ocean, and is Asia's SMALLEST country. Sitting at just 4'11" above sea level, it's also the world's LOWEST country. The more you know.)

But Phelps hasn't completely forgotten about his one and only -- we're told Michael promised to make it up to Megan by taking her on a separate trip ... just the two of 'em ... anywhere in the world.

Not a bad consolation prize.

First, the media is reporting that he is desperate to travel the world with her and is considering marriage. Now, he's doing a "bros only" vacation? If he and this girl were as serious as has been reported, there is no way his first vacation upon retirement would have been with his boys. Seems like he is distancing himself. Makes sense - she (or someone close to her) has been publicizing herself and their "relationship" starting less than a day after he retired. It's like she could hardly contain herself. And it's pretty obvious that he has taken great pains to keep this part of his life out of the media. How close can they be if she doesn't even know how to tweet him directly?

I wonder how much he has to pay a woman to **** him? If he were the last man on earth, I wouldn't touch his ass.

Sounds like Michael is starting to find out who she truly is. I don't he thinks she deserves to go on an expensive trip with him. Have fun in the Islands Michael Phelps you deserve it!!! :)

I worked with her at Panama Joe's in Belmont Shore, and think it's so sad that people are so quick to judge. She's a super sweet girl with a good head on her shoulders, and I wish her the best of luck in all she does :)
