Palm Trees & Pineapples – Mauritius Style


Mau 2

For me, travelling means one thing: Exciting good food that I can’t find at home!

Regardless of where I am, you’ll always find me chasing deliciousness with a camera in my hand and a smile on my face.

Normally I would have planned breakfast, a second breakfast, lunch, a dessert break, dinner and a midnight treat, but this time, I enjoyed the casualness and let Grand Baie show me what it had to offer.
