You’ve made it – Welcome to Mauritius

You’ve done it! You’ve packed up your old life and started a new one. You’ve made it to the island by hook or by crook. As you unpack your things in your new home you might wonder, what now? What’s next? It’s not all cocktails and beach sunsets especially if you are here to earn […]

Island Blues

Tonight I’ve got the blues. Worse than the Sunday blues that I had yesterday. The gloomy clouds covering our rock in the middle of the ocean is surely not helping. We’ve recently moved to this rock in the middle of nowhere following hubby and we all arrived here in good spirits and quite optimistic about […]

Are you really ready to be an expat? Am I ready to be one?

Not meaning to stir some feathers, just a personal observation derived from my personal life and inspired by the very interesting mix of SAFFAS I have met so far. ‘Are you really ready to be an expat?’; is the question that’s been on my mind for the last few weeks and especially in the light […]

Three months and counting

You know you’re home when you realise that what was once strange and unfamiliar has now become the new normal. Our three month anniversary of being in Mauritius has come and gone, passing unnoticed, lost in the craziness that we call life. When I realized it my first thought was that the fact that we […]

The ‘hole’ created by leaving everything behind

This photo have been doing the rounds for years now. It’s an amazing piece of artwork and I admire the thought and perspective it shows and how one can relate to it. From personal experience I can vouch that this ‘hole’ or vacuum, represented here is not just reserved for Expats but for everyone that’s […]

Help spread the love – The Love Project -Mauritius

Since moving to Mauritius I have been quite active on social media looking for inspiration for blogs, things to do and any interesting initiatives to check out. The more obvious initiatives would be getting involved in the local animal shelters or some other noble cause. Not that I haven’t given it some thought but my […]
