Sisterhood holiday… a long weekend in Mauritius

It’s Thursday, let’s throw it back to another holiday I took. My sister and I used to go on vacations that we called the Sisterhood Weekend Island Getaway (SWIG), on our first trip we went to Mauritius for 4 days. This was back in 2010. It was the first time either of us had been to Mauritius. We explored the small island, took a catamaran cruise, check out the capital, Port Louis and *tried* our hand at some water sports.

The hotel we stayed at was perfection

 The area we took a catamaran to, Ilot Gabriel – I had never seen water sooo blue and clear!

Posing along the waterfront (back when I was still a slender lol!)

Getting help with putting on the water skis before getting into the water

Coming back defeated. I tried water skiing and couldn’t, I kept on falling into the water – at least I tried neh? The guy on the boat was so patient shame, he was such a gem.

Then I went kayaking and I was a natural. Kayak game on a hundred!

Now that was the good life! Take me back

Sunsets to die for!

Mauritius was such an awesome island to visit, there is tons of stuff to do, we just scraped the surface. I’ll be featuring another SWIG travel post on another trip I took with my sister. Travelling with her is so much fun!
