When Iaan asked me where I wanted to go for our honeymoon, it was impossible not to say Mauritius. A visit to this iconic island had always been on my vacation wish-list. I still remember our flight arrived quite late that evening, meaning we had to wait till the morning to see the long-anticipated white beaches and crystal clear water.
I opened the curtains that morning, knowing that what the brochures promised, might not be exactly true to reality. But in front of me was a beach filled with palm trees, crisp white sand and a calm crystal clear ocean stretching over the horizon – pure paradise just as promised!
The next few days were simply the best holiday I’ve ever had. We literally spent our days lying in the sun, sipping cocktails and eating to our hearts’ content. I even attempted a few water sports!
And now, with winter at our door, sizzling fireplaces and bodies wrapped in warm blankets, I’m sure most of us would love to trade a week of this chilly weather for a sunny outdoor vacation.
