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.

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
