TROPICAL HEAT IN FEBRUARY

by - 11:12



Do you believe in the saying "What you believe you create" ? I completely do, and after 2015 even more so. It happened to me countless times last year, or was I just believing it? Trip to Mauritius was one of those things I was imagining more than just any other trip. My husband and I were negotiating for a very long time whether to go to Seychelles or Mauritius for our honeymoon. You already know where we went (here & here) so I couldn't hide my excitement when only few months later, I was boarding the AirAustral plain, direction La Reunion - Île Maurice (unfortunately without him).

If you read my blog you probably know I'm about to use quite a few too many adjectives! I can't help myself! Traveling makes me happy, I'm a very expressive person and see beauty everywhere, I love good food and I love great company. This trip was a mix of all those things with the unbeatable bonus of traveling to a tropical country in February... hello 30 degreeeeees! 

We stayed at the newly re-opened resort called The Ravenala Attitude in the north of the island. I loved the Mauritian-style suit with a mix of colonial heritage and contemporary design (and a little private terrace, yay!).  There are ten restaurants and six bars..... I'm just saying!!  haha 

We spend the days exploring Mauritius - visited Bazar de Port-Louis - attempted to learn the local dance called Sega - realised how badly I did while watching the professional dancers dance Sega - snorkeled in the Indian Ocean - survived a tropical storm while being on a catamaran in the middle of the Indian Ocean - got back safely to the island (soaking wet) - were treated to an amazing spa treatment to warm our soaking cold bodies up - ate the most delicious food you can imagine! 

Apropos food, not only did I learn how to cook spicy "otentik" chicken curry (the secret behind is using lot of fresh curry leaves and coriander!) but the whole culinary experience in Mauritius was a huge enjoyment for me! The food was fantastic everywhere we went! Lot of fish, fresh herbs, huge Indian influence but also French cuisine (Oh! if I could only bring that lamb drumstick dish back to Paris for my food-partner-in-crime, read husband, to try!!!).

I hope you'll enjoy the first part of my Mauritian adventure, there's more coming in the next couple of days. I kept my favourite part of the trip for last. xx


Thank you to AirAustral and Vacances Transat for making this trip possible!
Thank you to my dear friend Aurélie for the beach-bikini posing! xx

  6. I am so grateful to have stumbled across your website! Your images are sublime and filled with so much colour; I almost wish I could reach through the screen and steal a juicy pomegranate seed!

    The saying "What you believe you create" completely resonates with me; perhaps a little reminder to never stop dreaming?

    Keep up the beautiful work! :-)
