    The ups and downs of paddleboarding

    June 28, 2017 in Mauritius ⋅ ⛅ 23 °C

    Emma, Adam and I decided to go 'stand-up' paddleboarding today. Conditions appeared calm but when we got out into the bay, there was a strong wind and current to contend with. We did okay for a while but eventually all three of us took tumbles into the Indian Ocean! My confidence had increased after I survived the wake of a speedboat zooming past me but a lapse of concentration saw me hit the water soon after. Then it was a case of getting back on the board - eventually I made it and kneeling, I made slow progress back to shore. On arrival, it was pointed out to me that i had the board the wrong way around and my style was 'unique'.
    After that we had a leisurely lunch and a peaceful, relaxing afternoon on the beach with our kindles, books and magazines.

    On our bikes again

    June 29, 2017 in Mauritius ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    This time our trip took us south of Grand Baie. Our first stop was a beachside Hindu temple and then we carried on to the wonderful sweeping bay of Mon Choisy, lined with trees, golden sand, and a turquoise sea set against a backdrop of the island's mountains.
    After a well-earned lunch, we had a relaxing afternoon on the beach watching others enjoy the sailing, kayaking and paddleboarding etc. After watching our penultimate Mauritian sunset we sat down to yet another excellent buffet in the restaurant.

    Nordwesten von Mauritius

    October 11, 2018 in Mauritius ⋅ 🌬 25 °C

    Heute waren wir im Nordwesten der Insel. Mauritius ist doch viel größer als wir dachten und so waren wir erstmal 1,5 Stunden dorthin unterwegs. Unsere Stopps waren:
    - Grand Baie: das Touristenzentrum von Mauritius, der Strand ist klein, das Wasser aber wunderschön hellblau. Leider liegen Hunderte von Booten in der Bucht und machen Baden unmöglich. Für Stef gibts zumindest gebratene Nudeln mit Hähnchen für 2€
    - Mont Choisy Beach: schöner Strand, an dem wir uns dann auch kurz hingelegt haben. Leider war das Wetter wieder mal nicht so gut...
    - Troi Aux Biches Beach: sehr voll, laute Musik. Hat uns daher nicht so gefallen.
