Mauritius Memories

Mauritius is the less glamourous cousin of the Maldives in the Indian Ocean.

It’s more of an island surrounded by smaller gems, rather than a series of atolls.

Still, there’s something about being in the middle of the vast Indian Ocean that casts its spell on you.

  1. You have some beautiful pictures, and memories it seems, of your trip to our little island!

    I’m curious, knowing that this was a mythical place for you, to know what you brought back from this trip?

    • Hello Priscille, thank you for reading and taking the time to comment. The one thing that seemed most magical for me when I was in Mauritius was knowing that I was experiencing a childhood memory in the physical, where before the word ‘Mauritius’ had remained merely a name. So coming back to the urban island of Singapore, I treasured the laidback feel and tranquility of the island and also the new bonds with my aunt and cousins. Nothing extraordinary, but a huge part of travel is the awareness of who we were when we visit places and how it’s changed us, of at all.
