Wouldn’t you #RatherbeinMauritius ?

When I received this package, it brought back so many memories of my 2013 trip with my BFF, Karolina Sky. Take us back!

It feels like maybe 2 years ago, not 4 years ago – time is flying! This trip was extremely special for us because besides getting to spend wonderful, quality time together, it was also a trip we did just before I moved away to Cape Town. I remember we were so weepy after the trip, because besides being sad to leave paradise, it meant my leaving Johannesburg. We were so sad about the distance; but today, 4 years on, we have never been closer. I keep teasing her that she can’t get rid of her soul sister that easily!

I think it is high time we go back and we have been talking about doing a trip together again – this time with our families. I remember when we did the hotel tour, we were shown the baby and kids clubs and activities and we just looked at each other and said: “One day we will return with our future babies.”

It’s always fun taking a trip down memory lane…

I might not be able to go straight away with my newborn, but we can start planning, right? I think just daydreaming of warm, turquoise waters, white sandy beaches dotted with majestic palm trees and deckchairs, bronzed skin, salty hair and icy cocktails is soothing for the soul. Especially in Winter.

    Oh my heck I want to win this, but I am only on Facebook now, having decided to take a break from Instagram. I could use Twitter I suppose. But I am so not on social media lately. Anyways, it’s an awesome prize.

    I’m all over this one! It has to be ours! My Boerewors and I wanted to go to Mauritius for our honeymoon but couldn’t afford it! With our 18th wedding anniversary coming up towards the end if the year this would be a honeymoon of a lifetime!

    AMAZING!!!! Mauritius is our absolute best family holiday destination and our last trip in 2016 was to LUX Belle Mare – hands down the best Mauritius hotel/resort we have stayed at and we are planning to go back for Easter next year. We cannot wait x
