Jul 25, 2018 - Sydney to Mauritius
Wednesday 25th July 2018 Sydney to Mauritius Up early this morning at our hotel near the airport. Met Tanya and Geoff out the front of the hotel and walked to the Domestic Terminal for our first flight, due to depart for Perth at 7:15am. Flew across the country on a fairly empty Virgin flight, and strangely, Lynn was seated at the rear of the plane in a window seat and Tanya, Geoff and David were further forward in the centre but with an empty seat - for Lynn.... David eventually joined Lynn at the back of the plane. Two ladies sat in front...Jump to full entry
Apr 1, 2016 - No Foolin'
Hooray, no April fools joke, we are moving to a different apartment in the same Villa. We now face the pool, have two bathrooms, and three bedrooms. It's roomier, although there are still some problems. The shower heads are broken (not attached to the wall), no coffee pot, the kettle doesn't work, the counter is rotting behind the kitchen sink, only two bath towels for the three of us and the air conditioner in our room is weak. Other than that it is better. Roshan did provide two beach towels, as was requested, so that helps with the towel...Jump to full entry
Mar 31, 2016 - Blue Coral Boat Tour
Al insisted on driving to Blue Bay ourselves with the rental car to meet the boat company instead of being picked up in a van. We head out about an hour before departure to ensure we find it on time. The roads are not too bad until we hit Phoenix, a city in the central part of the island where we experience rush hour. Policemen direct traffic at the traffic circles to make traffic run smoother. Hmmmm, strange because I thought traffic circles were supposed to relieve congestion. Oliver and Fabio are the boat tour guides that we meet before...Jump to full entry
Mar 27, 2016 - Dubai to Mauritius
We had to depart from the Dubai airport just to get a decent flight. Emirates and Mauritius air combine to get us there in 6.5 hours straight south from UAE. Mauritius is just east of Madagascar which sits east of Africa. Our flight to Mauritius was very nice with Emirates airlines on a jumbo jet with a second level. Two meals were provided within the 6.5 hour flight Upon arrival getting through customs was efficiently done. We land at the Mauritius airport which is situated on the south east part of the island near Mahebourg. Roshan, our...Jump to full entry
Dec 6, 2007 - Delicious Mauritius!
Wow! Mauritius is really as it sounds...delicious! After ten amazing weeks in Madagascar (without many luxuries), it was so nice to unwind in Mauritius! We feasted on THE best Indian, Thai & Creole food we have EVER had (this could have been because our taste buds were so numb from eating rice & beans for so long....OR maybe the food really was THAT good!). Besides the food, we enjoyed the luxuries of long sleeps in a beautiful bed, hot showers, drinking cold beers & cocktails & simply sitting by the beach watching the aqua coloured waves...Jump to full entry
