Ahoy Maurice! A place that is so beautiful and loaded with the richness of serene beaches and islands, beautiful landscapes, friendly locales, blend of cultures and so much more..
So this is how my trip to Mauritius was..
After months of wedding preparations, we were really looking forward to this trip to Mauritius. It wasn't the "honeymoon" that added the spark, we were in glee just with the thought of a vacation after all the hustle bustle that a traditional marriage brings to your life.
We started our travel from Bombay airport and since it was an early morning flight, we decided to get some booze before we board ????. This is so not advisable peeps, but yeah, I needed it so much and it's fun to drink with your husband just after being the traditional "bahu" (bride) in all those marriage functions. So, yeah I had a crazy, longish drinking session before boarding the flight with my caring husband.
A smooth flight it was with Air Mauritius. Mauritius offers visa on arrival so the process was pretty smooth there. At the airport, we had an escort from the holiday planner waiting for us with our name card. Now something very exciting happened here.. While my husband was talking to the travel escort and getting the local Mauritian SIM card activated, I excused myself for a quick loo break and to grab some munchies and water for our travel till the hotel. Though I informed my husband before going, I went on a longish break just as I was seeing the airport and its gallery as an enthusiast.. And also, trying to understand the USD to MUR calculation from the cafe owner from where I went to purchase my chips, water and chewing gum!
