We left for 2 weeks on the utterly unknown island. Once we received there, it was removed from what we anticipated: we did not suppose the island was as developed! We rapidly realized that the island is completely completely different from one place to a different. We go from tall buildings to heavenly seashores, from fields of tea and sugar cane to rocky mountains, with out forgetting the small villages the place poverty could be very current however the place sharing and generosity are the watchwords. I beloved the range of the island!

Your greatest reminiscence of the journey?
Regardless of every thing, air pollution is certainly current on the island. Infrastructure is beginning to emerge which has helped to cut back seaside air pollution. Nevertheless, waste remains to be very current as a result of sorting just isn’t anchored within the tradition of sure premises. So I wish to ship a bit message to those that are tempted to go there: respect the island, throw your rubbish within the trash and, in case you really feel prefer it, don’t hesitate to select up some. And above all, remember to respect animals and their surroundings: simply admire them with out touching them! We solely have one planet …
The very best dish you’ve got tasted and, most significantly, the place did you style it?
We ate very properly in every single place we went! It isn’t very attention-grabbing to eat in resorts, so don’t hesitate to go to the cabins of the locals. Throughout our go to to Mahébourg, we discovered a small restaurant referred to as The Previous Crimson (native fish). I may style there recent fish with coconut milk, a real delight !
We additionally loved meal in an area snack: the Tondou Snack. The household could be very welcoming and their kids are lovable, I’ve fond reminiscences of them. We additionally tasted conventional Mauritian dishes at The Creole Stopover. The host is passionate, shares his love of the island very properly and creates scrumptious dishes for you! A protected place to eat native.
A lodge (or extra) to suggest?
As we all know, speaking with locals just isn’t all the time straightforward … What’s the phrase that saved you? The phrase that you simply repeated probably the most all through the keep?
It was very straightforward for us to speak with the locals who converse English and French. If some need a complete change of surroundings whereas staying in consolation by way of communication, don’t hesitate: Mauritius is the best vacation spot!
And if it have been to be executed once more, what would you modify?
If it have been to be executed once more I’d not hesitate to stick with the locals. As well as, we stayed within the north of the island by way of lodging, so we needed to systematically undergo Port Louis, which made us lose loads of time on the street due to the typically troublesome site visitors. The perfect is to spend per week north, then per week south.
Any recommendation to provide or journey plan to share with anybody who needs to go to Mauritius?
