Sun Down at Rodrigues Is.

There comes a time when I start to feel suffocated in my own environment. Too much work? Saturated? Emotionally drained? Family obligations? I donโ€™t know. What I know isโ€ฆ I need to escape!

So there, I took a flight to a neighbouring island, the Rodrigues Island. This island is what Mauritius was, MANY years back. Though it is not very rich in greenery, but whatโ€™s more important is that you can still see the horizon from almost everywhere. No pencil development. Less and less concrete. Limited deforestation. Amazing and welcoming people. JUST what I needed!

I booked a bungalow, named Le Cactus, whose owner Dary was exceptional. I do recommend this accommodation, which is found in Grand Baie, a bay tucked some 15-20 minutes away from the capital city – Port Mathurin. On one side, the mountain and trees and on the other side, the sea. In the middle: people, goats, chicken, CRABS! Omgโ€ฆ giant crabs!

Snaps of my first sun downing at Grand Baie, Rodrigues Island:
