Bonkers Barcelona

Barcelona was my next stop. What. A. City. I cannot think of another city that was so much fun – it felt like I was in one extended party! Of course, first and foremost, the buildings are incredible. Gaudi designed stunning, mind-melting urban landscapes. The still-unfinished Sagrada Familia goes beyond what I thought possible in…

Amazing Andalusia

Last summer I went on a trip round Spain. Coming from England, Spain is not exactly an adventure but I discovered a really cool and varied country. I started my journey in the South, in the region called Andalusia. Having landed after a classic, late-night, cheap flight to Malaga, we decided the best thing to…

Day 10 – Last day in Mauritius (

After purchasing my last presents and souvenirs, we drove up North with Lomesh to enjoy one last time: the dreamy beaches of Mont Choisy, Grand Baie et Trou-aux-Biches. There was not much time left but I was happy to have a good swim in the 32 degree water looking at the horizon and think of…

Day 9 – “My dream is to fly above the rainbow… So high!”

The tornado finally died away between Mauritius island and Rodrigues and the good weather was back! Hurray! After Breakfast we went to the “Python de la petite riviere noire” trail, a few miles away from Grand Bassin, we had a 3 hours walk back and forth. The trail was a bit wet, but that was…

Day 8 – Bois Cheri Tea Factory

The weather was terrible and we decided to visit the nearby factory so we would not be stuck at home all day. Thanks to Lomesh father, we got in for free and I got the chance to learn about the fabrication process. It was very interesting to see the difference the green and the back…

Day 7 – Mauritius, the land of cashmere

All activities were compromised because of the tornado getting closer and closer to Mauritius, the tornado was still Class 2 and expected to reach Class 3, which means no sailing activities, no school and no work. In a few hours, the roads would probably be closed. So we decided with Lomesh to use the time…

Day 6 – Turtles, sugar and tornado…

This time we were headig up North toward the Botanical Garden, in Pamplemousses. It was very enjoyable, we came across all different kind of animal and vegetal species. There were of course gigantic earth turtles, the biggest one we saw was 120 Kg, absolutely massive, there deers, I learned later there were introduced by the…

Day 5- L’ile aux Cerfs and more!

We left early morning at 6 am to get to Trou-d’Eau-Douce to meet the tour guy. It took us about an hour to get there and as we arrived early, Lomesh asked around if there were other people offering similar tours as he was convinced that we could find way cheaper. It turned out he…

Day 3- The “7-color-earth” and Avalon!

The weather was so weird… It reminded me South America! It’s getting hotter and hotter, when the heat hits its climax, the rain is pourring down for 30 minutes and it’s getting hotter for another round and so on… In spite of the heavy rained, we managed to find the Chamarel waterfall: a monumental 82m…
