Travel - Honeymooning in Mauritius

May 26, 2015

I wish I could beam myself back to our trip to Mauritius a couple of weeks ago, I don't think I've ever been so sad to come home from a holiday before! It was just the most perfect week, probably the best resort we've ever stayed in {and if you've read my travelogues you know how much and how often we love to travel}, the best weather, beach, food, relaxation, service, everything was just heaven. We were naughty and booked it as a second honeymoon {there's no rules about how many honeymoons you can take in your first year of marriage right?!} and as such got a great deal with lots of extras like $100 resort credit per day to spend on spa treatments and an upgrade from half to full board so we could order lunch on the beach everyday. There were palm trees, and coconuts and the clearest bluest water, sunsets and stars. But best of all was spending time with my husband, pure quality time without any distractions. And laughter, so so much laughter. I really do love that guy so much. If you're interested in the details such as who we booked it through and more info about the resort, Constance Le Prince Maurice I've written about it here over at So You're Getting Married. But for now on R&R I thought I'd just share lots more photos if you're interested {mostly so I can just sit and look back at them whenever it's rainy or cold at home}. Yay for holidays, I'm sure that I was put on this world to travel.
