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 […]

The wind beneath my wings – Sailing with Klaus from Wildwind Adventures Mauritius

There has been many a day that whilst on my sunset walks, I would amble past the Hobie cats and other watersport equipment in front of the hotels on Mont Choisy beach convinced that it was unavailable for use to the locals and only for hotel guests. Turns out I was wrong. Wildwind adventures cater […]

From personal experience I can vouch that this ‘hole’ or vacuum, represented here is not just reserved for Expats but for everyone that’s […]

Mauritius – more than white sandy beaches

If you had asked me about Mauritius two and a half years ago I probably wouldn’t have been able to name one thing about Mauritius apart from the obvious facts; it’s an island, a popular tourist destination and it boasts white sandy beaches. I had no reference points to speak of and quite frankly did […]

Shopping in French – Adapt or die 😋

Since moving to our rock, the weekly food-shop has sure become more of a challenge as not only are the options for what was once familiar now very limited but most of the packaging in the shops sports French descriptions and directions. Knowing this from previous visits I was not too bummed out until what […]
