We’re Going to MAURITIUS!

7 11 2011

Joe & I try to spread out our holidays throughout the year as it’s best to take regular breaks from Gabon and the difficulties here.  We saved an extra week of Joe’s vacation days just for this purpose as we knew we wouldn’t be coming home for Christmas this year.  (Singapore was an added bonus!)

After our busy trips to Canada, South Africa & Singapore this year, we decided we needed something a little more relaxing to decompress from work for Joe and life in Africa for me so we decided Mauritius was the place to be.

Mauritius is to the right of Madagascar - the tiny little island that says "Port Louis."

Mauritius is a small island in the Indian ocean to the East of Madagascar.  It’s known for it’s luxury accommodation and rich culture as the residents come from Indian, African, French & Chinese heritage.  English is the official language however, French and Mauritian Creole are widely spoken as well.

Joe and I will spend 1 week in Mauritius taking in the sun and then we’ll fly back to Johannesburg and spend a couple of days there to stock up on anything we need in Gabon.  We’ll get home December 20 just in time for a Christmas in West Africa.
