What makes this experience special is the people that we meet on the road. Some of the faces that we encountered in this pause in Mauritius: Sam (the Labourdennais hotel manager), his smile made our mornings better every day; Rasheed was the taxi driver and overall useful fellow: whenever we need to source something or get something done, he was the man for the job. And most importantly, Pierre d'Unienville (photo below). If it weren't for him and all his help, we would literally be sitting at the Caudan Marina waiting for the Second Coming... of spare parts. It was a tearful farewell to this beautiful island and the wonderful friends we made along the way.
P.S. If you are ever in Mauritius, contact us and we can tell you how to get in touch with these wonderful folks.
