I have a confession to make. I have a bit of a writers block. I simply don’t find neither motivation for writing, nor the right words to describe the beauty of Mauritius. Because they say a picture is worth a thousand words, here are ten of my favourite photos I took while exploring this beautiful island in the middle of Indian Ocean. I hope you’ll enjoy them.
From 27th April to 6th May 2018
- Stunning beaches
- Underwater world
- Wild dolphins spotting
- Beautiful unique nature
My dad is turning 50 this year. As this is kind of a big deal anniversary, my mum, husband and I are taking him to Mauritius, a tiny island in the Indian ocean, situated east of Madagascar. Once described by Mark Twain with those words: “Mauritius was made first, and then heaven, and that heaven was copied after Mauritius.” seems like an ideal destination for dad’s 50th birthday celebrations.
In order to make my dad’s birthday trip even more memorable, I would like to ask YOU my dear readers for some assistance. If you have already visited Mauritius, what are your favourite places there? What attractions are must see? Which beaches did you like the best? Where is the best snorkelling? What activities would you recommend? Where do they serve the best food? What local delicacy must we try? Any suggestion would be highly appreciated!
Sunset is a gorgeous time of day. No matter where in the world you are, when the daylight turn to dusk, the sky glows in the most amazing palette of colours. Here are some of the lovely sunsets I’ve managed to capture on my travels around the globe:
After 14 days in warm tropical climate of SE Asia my body struggle to adapt to cold winter temperatures here in Switzerland. I feel miserable. In such state, I’m trying to lift my spirits by editing videos and photos from my trips to the warm and sunny places. I would like to share with you one of them: a video from my trip to Seychelles in December 2016. I hope you’ll enjoy it!
When the sun slowly set down into the Indian ocean the sky above Seychelles paints itself in the most amazing shades of orange, pink and red. It is hard to describe the beauty of those sunsets. They are incredible, stunning, wonderful.
Here are some of the photos of those amazing sunsets. Hope you’ll enjoy them.
Another year has flew by and again it is time to look back and remember all the awesome things I’ve experienced in this past year. Here is a quick recap of my 2016:
- I’ve visited 2 new countries, Iceland and Seychelles, biding goodbye to 2016 with total count of 26 visited countries.
- I’ve visited Scotland for the first time.
- I’ve swam in Indian ocean for the first time
- The longest time I’ve been away from home in 2016 was 14-days trip to Seychelles in November and December
Do you know that feeling when you just got back home from the amazing trip and you wish to book another ticket and return back to where just came from. Well, I do. My birthday trip to Seychelles was A-M-A-Z-I-N-G! I want to book another ticket and go straight away.
14 days in Seychelles were enough to see and experience many things this tropical paradise has to offer: we swam and snorkelled at some of the most beautiful beaches in the world, we saw countless number of colourful fishes, we swam with the turtles, we hiked, we cycled, we pet giant tortoises, we’ve visited the prehistoric tropical forrest, etc. Continue reading
From 27th November to 10th December 2016
- Stunning beaches
- Underwater world
- Unique nature
Main reason for our trip to Seychelles is fulfilment of my wish to celebrate my birthday a bit different than usual. I wished to step into new decade of my life while enjoying the warmth of the sun, relaxing at the beach, under the palm tree, dressed only in bikini. That kind of birthday celebration that is impossible in Europe in December, but is possible in the islands of the Indian Ocean. When my husband and I found affordable plane tickets to Seychelles, we didn’t hesitate much before we booked the flight and started to plan our trip.
In order to make my birthday trip even more memorable, I would like to ask YOU my dear readers for some assistance. What are your favourite places in Seychelles? What attractions are must see? What beaches are the best? What restaurants serve the best food? Any tip would be highly appreciated!
It’s time for the first Blast from the Past post in 2016! On this cold winter day, I’m remembering warmer days of September 2006, I’ve spent in Egypt. While on holidays in Hurgada, my boyfriend and I took a day-trip to Cairo and Giza. In the morning we’ve explored Egyptian archaeological heritage at Giza, in the afternoon we spent some time exploring Cairo. Here are some photos from that trip:
Sunsets are magical time of the day when the evening sky shines in the most amazing colours. I witnessed many stunning sunsets, but was able to capture just a few of them on my photos. Here are some of those photos:
Today’s Blast from the Past post is taking you back to September 2006 when I first time left Europe to visit Egypt in North Africa. I’ve spent most of my holidays relaxing at the beach in Hurgada. But, when in Egypt it would be a shame not to dedicate at least a day for exploring the ancient Egyptian heritage. Where else to go than to Giza, where the most famous monuments from the ancient Egypt era – the Pyramids and the Sphinx – can be found.
Here are some photos we took while exploring the Giza Plateau:
