The countdown to Mauritius begins! Less than two weeks of our Euro summer trip are left. It’s always lovely to take a long break and come back to see family in our two home countries 🇫🇮🇬🇧 But the beaches, the tropical sun and our home-home (almost 10,000km away! ) are calling. PS I love this fab unique view of Le Morne, don’t you?
King of the lake 🙌🏼 We’ve thoroughly enjoyed our holiday back home in Finland. Spending quality time by the water and with family (and without running water! ) is a special experience we get to enjoy year after year. — Watch out for a special vlog episode from the summer cottage, dropping today. Search YouTube for “mini mauritius” 👍🏼
Feeling very lucky to have the opportunity to rock up at the beach on a whim and head out to swim with turtles. It’s an amazing experience and one of our favourite things to do in Mauritius. Check our new vlog episode of you want to see what it’s like to swim with these beautiful creatures! Link in bio 👍🏼
Catching pixels and drinking coffee. — We had an awesome weekend in Black River, hiking Le Morne Brabant and staying at the wonderful @margueryvillas ! Milja’s just editing the vlog; she’s got 1.5 hours of footage to get through 😅
Love this jungle in our @margueryvillas shower 😱 🐯 🐵 This is our second stay here and we seriously don’t want to go home. Olivia calls it our “hotel home.” 😅
Mornings on the sand with a drink in hand. Love the palms that tower over La Plage in Trou aux Biches! @minimauritius
Taking these little people to different places is so rewarding. — We’re flying home to Mauritius next week! So excited. It’s been almost four months we’ve spent visiting relatives and Southern Europe (and living in other people’s houses ). We’ve got a new home lined up in the north of the island and we can’t wait to get settled in and make the place ours.
I caught this slither of golden light streaking across the valley at 6:30 when our littlest woke me up. 10 minutes later, the sun had risen above the cloud line and everything was grey. It ended up being a little reminder to take chances while you can. You may regret it, and regret sucks.
Taking off from Helsinki last night. We’re currently exploring the Malaga/Marbella area. Not just because it’s our first trip without kids since before they were born. Not just because it’s hot and sunny and a bit like home in Mauritius 😎 But mainly because this may well be our next destination in life and we’re here to check it out.
This view. Sunset’s not bad either. @minimauritius
