Today I’m going to “walk with lions” in Southern Mauritius, so in case I don’t make it back, here are a couple pictures of my stay so far. Expect a detailed trip report when I’m (hopefully) back, but just know this place is pretty incredible.

There are very few Americans here – in fact, my cab driver told me I was his third American in 15 years of driving a cab! That’s pretty awesome, but such a shame because this place is beautiful and has a ton of really interesting culture.

My flight on Air Mauritius went well too, but I don’t want to spoil my future reports. Stay tuned! For a background on how I used Skymiles to book this trip, check out this post.

Open Air Lobby of the Intercontinental

Presidential Suite at the Intercontinental ... Have I said how much I love being a Royal Ambassador?

Pool and ocean view at the Intercontinental. It's off season, so it's almost all mine

    Enjoy your stay their! I docked their in 2005 with 600 classmates/shipmates and it is indeed beautiful and I’m sure you can imagine all the fun we had. Stopping before I get nastalgic. I can’t wait to go back. How would you compare it to the Maldives because I’m debating b/w that and Mauritus again?

    Every time I read a new report from whereever you are or have been, the song Ramblin Man by Lemonjelly is always playing in my head! Keep it up!

    The real beauty of Mauritius is in the multi-cultural population and the fantastic beaches. The InterCon is down the road from the Trou aux Biches Resort — my favorite hangout. I hope you’re spending most of your time on the beach, meeting the locals, and enjoying the great food. Check out the Trou aux Biches beach. It’s world class.
