Longing for Holidays...

We have started to talk about holidays, when and where to go. I love that: looking for tickets, where to stay, what to do, all the planning. I always try to do a lot of research, so that we can discover as much as possible. So this morning I was looking through some of ours pictures and thought I would share a little bit with you. I have quite a few so I might do this once a week or so.

We are missing Mauritius specially. We haven't been in quite a while. Well since our wedding 18 months ago so I'll start with our favourite island.

These are both views from Hotels - to the left it's Belle Mare Plage, to the right Le Meriden
Belle Mare Plage Hotel is one of the best places we have stayed

These are from The Oberoi (right) and Sofitel (left)

Cap Malheureux, at the north of the Island

Grand Baie - The North of the Island has the best beaches and the clearest water
Food stalls at Grand Baie - Mauritian food is just so tasty
You can easily eat from these stalls, the only thing is that the food is quite spicy!
I really like this one, not bad considering it is shot while we were driving!
And of course, I couldn't post about Mauritius, without adding a picture from our wedding.

Ah holidays...

Love the pictures! We went to Mauritius last Easter hols, stayed at Legends near Grand Baie in the North. Loved it - not only beach but water sports, lovely countryside and we particularly enjoyed the zip-lining in the South through the forest!
But may I suggest Vietnam - as you know we have just been and it is just great all round. If you don't venture into the forest inland then you won't even need malaria tabs and only the usual vaccinations you bound to have already as an expat.

We also liked Mauritus when we went there for a holiday, it was beautiful and relaxing. It's a gorgerous place. I posted some pics on my blog.

I've never been to Mauritius, but everyone I know who's been there raved about it. So much to see all over the world... And I'm like you, I totally LOVE preparing our trips abroad, researching where to go, etc. In a way, you start your holidays before you even get there...

Ulrike, yeah Vietnam is definetely a must go place! it just looks so beautiful!
Scoop, yep! Have already had a look at your pics. I actually like the "passport stamp" idea might steal it from you if you are ok with that!
Katia, you must go - if you like relaxing holidays! There is a bit of visiting and venturing to do as well...
