Memorable moments in 2016

mauritious

Mauritius wins my destination of the year, it was such a surprise. It’s beautiful easy to hike and has great food. I only spent a long weekend here but was outside and active the whole time, hiking, kayaking, SUP and just mooching around. Highly recommended.

The best part of my trip was visiting Ile aux Aigrettes, a small island being regenerated and kept as a nature reserve. As well as some of the rarest creatures on the planet there are numerous extinct species represented in brass on the island including the long necked giant tortoise and the most famous of all – The Dodo. A sobering thought that these creatures went extinct due to man.

And my best moment – meeting the real life giant tortoise on the island.
