Mauritius. – Some of the scenes from the road.
What I loved about this trip was all that we discovered and enjoyed whilst exploring the island. Yes, we seek out the luxury and beauty, cherishing every aspect of it, but to catch a glimpse of true living, building, people going about their regular business and wholly owning ‘their Mauritius’, interested me.
How they embrace tourism, their heritage and history with great allure, a touch of welcome chaos and loads of character. The excellent food and mix of religions. The way inland travel is being developed, the ease and openness with which they share their thoughts. How everybody accepts without fail that it takes an hour to get, well – everywhere. The pace of life is easy, the accent charming and island living ever appealing. I completely understand why people choose to move here.
Observations, I probably wouldn’t want to drive here, opted not to get on a bicycle anywhere near the crazy roads and did feel for the endless dogs that roam free, often uncared for … If only I could take them all home.
