Our special trip to Mauritius

Trish Griffiths on 06 November 2021
Every year when our Wedding anniversary comes around I think I should update my website with our Wedding photos from Mauritius.

We got married on the beautiful island of MAURITIUS in November 1998 – back then we did not have the facility to add photos & blogs to our website. So I do apologise for the quality of the photo as it is scanned from our wedding album which was made for us by the wedding team on the island.

I have many clients who go to Mauritius and fall in love with it just as we did, it caters for couples or families and choosing the right hotel is very important. We stayed in Grand Baie which back then had just a handful or bars & restaurants, it has now grown bigger so has a much wider choice.

The people in Mauritius are incredibly friendly, so much so that our witnesses were both waiters at the local Indian restaurant we frequented. As we wanted something a little different for our wedding when we asked if they would like to be our witnesses they were over the moon and offered to wear their uniforms for us. (as you can see from the photo's they looked pretty cool!)

Owing to its geographic location and centuries of colonialism, the people of Mauritius are highly diverse in ethnicity, culture, language and faith, this also reflects in the cuisine. Mauritius is located in the Indian Ocean and is known for its beaches, lagoons and reefs. The mountainous interior includes Black River Gorges National Park, with rainforests, waterfalls, hiking trails and wildlife like the flying fox. Port Louis is the capital and has a great market and shopping opportunities. There is also the beautiful Botanical Gardens to visit if something like this is your cup of tea.

We took a HELICOPTER ride which took us all over the island, seeing Waterfalls and the famous Seven Earths. The seven Coloured Earths are a geological formation and tourist attraction which is a relatively small area of sand dunes comprising sand of seven distinct colours – amazing to see from above.

It’s on our list to return to celebrate our special anniversary……??
