Holiday in Mauritius

The view down onto the resort, seen in the distance just behind coconut Island.

Slideshow now set up – one week in “Paradis”.

I guess I’ll learn to deal with all the fossil fuel we burnt to get there and back.




One Day done.

Well, its been a long trip.

The flight overnight to Mauritius was pretty tiring – not much sleep.  Everyone crashed sometime during the day that followed.  We all missed lunch, and were pretty starving by the time we got to dinner.


Which was pretty fabulous – the indian restaurant really was mixed cusine with an emphasis on indian.  The buffet meant that the kids all went crazy on the desserts.


The actual resort is pretty impressive.  I’ve taken some (pre-sunrise) photos from the balcony, looking on to the ocean plus back into the room.


Now to attempt to windsurf today – that should be fun 🙂



Day Three

Karridale to Margaret river.

80 km long. Which is 4 km longer than advertised due to the very long driveway into Xanadu wineries. Over 2 km each way.

The reward was well worth it. A trip for three to Tracey’s sisters place.

Which made for a great evening.
