TRAVEL: back from Mauritius.

TRAVEL: back from Mauritius.

I honestly cannot remember the last time I went 5 days without a new post here on the blog. Some of you may think that it is due to last week’s trip to Mauritius (aka vacation mode), however, the reason is actually my laptop. Or lack thereof. I think it is safe to say that it is a nightmare for everyone to have their laptop or computer give up (especially without a recent backup), but as a blogger, it is literally the worst! Especially because I decided to be ontop of my work this time around and actually transferred and edited all (!) of the images from our trip on Mauritius – just before my MacBook decided that it now prefers to wear the color black. In other words: No screen. Luckily, I was able to safe all of the files through an external monitor over night and am currently waiting to hear back how much money this whole ordeal will cost me, but in the meantime, I am keeping a positive attitude and am starting the new week with lots of sunshine and lots of impressions from Mauritius and the Heritage Le Telfair Golf & Spa Resort .

This mountain is called “Le Morne” and holds the memories of a tragic story. The peninsula was notorious in the early 19th century as a refuge for runaway slaves. After the abolition of slavery in Mauritius, on 1 February 1835 a police expedition traveled there to inform the slaves that they had been freed. However, the purpose of the expedition was misunderstood and the slaves leapt to their deaths from the rock.

Playing golf was a first for me. I am not sure if “playing” is actually the right word, as I didn’t leave the driving range and barely hit 3 balls. It was still a ton of fun and since Kathi knows her stuff when it comes to golf, I plan on abusing her skills for a private lesson here in Vienna some time in the future!

This white bathing suit turned out to be the best buy before the trip. Super comfortable and perfect for a day on the boat!

Gris Gris: The only beach that is not sheltered by a coral reef, which allows sharks to sometimes find their way closer to the coast than at other parts of the island. It is also the only place on Mauritius where turtles are found because Gris Gris is a nesting place.

There are so many stray dogs on Mauritis. They’ll come up to you and curl up under your beach chair or hang out by the temples. For some reason this one caught my attention and I wish I could have taken it home. Such a friendly soul!

The Grand Bassin (Ganga Talao) is a crater lake situated in a secluded mountain area in the district of Savanne, deep in the heart of the island. There is a temple dedicated to Lord Shiva and other Gods including Lord Hanuman, Goddess Lakshmi, and others along the Grand Bassin. During Shivaratri, many pilgrims in Mauritius walk bare feet from their homes to the lake.

    Beautiful photos and interesting to learn more about the history of the place. It’s always hard for me to see stray dogs somewhere, I hope the locals take care of them well. Thanks for sharing and happy Monday!

    Och ne! Das ist echt das Ärgerlichste, was einem Blogger passieren kann. Aber da man ja immer das Positive sehen sollte: immerhin konntest du deine Daten noch retten!
    Es hat übrigens richtig Spaß gemacht, deinen Travel Diary durchzulesen. Vorallem die Geschichten! Ich finde historische Fakten total interessant, besonders wenn man zunächst nicht damit gerechnet hat.

    Solche Bilder kann ich gerade wirklich gut gebrauchen… hin und wieder schaut die Sonne hier in München zwar raus, aber meistens ist es dann doch Grau in Grau 🙂

    Total schöner Bikini übrigens! <3

    Viele liebe Grüße

    Liebe Vicky,

    das mit dem laptop ist ja wirklich total ätzend! Zum Glück konntest du deine Daten retten.
    Deine Bilder sind sehr schön und bringen gerade etwas Sonne in meinen bisher total verregneten, stürmischen Tag.

    I love your beach bag! And it definitely seems like you’ve had an amazing time! 🙂 I’ll have to add Mauritius to my list now, haha 🙂

    And I hope everything works out with your computer!

    Wow, so schöne Eindrücke! Mauritius rückt auf meiner Reiseliste immer weiter nach oben 😉 Ärgerlich mit dem Laptop, aber zum Glück konntest du die Fotos nochmal retten.

Unfortunately, I am not willing to pay 1.600€ for an economy ticket to Bangkok. Prices are always insane over the holidays and we kept getting more and more frustrated while planing the trip. At one point, it felt way too forced (and too expensive), so we decided to postpone for a month. Thailand turned into Mauritius and I am literally counting the days already!
