Getting there by ship and flying back.
07.06.2008 - 10.06.2008
We were set to go to Rodrigues island together. It was our first trip together and we were to depart at the Quay D Terminal in Port Louis for boarding the Mauritius Pride. It would take 36 hours for us to reach the island of Rodrigues which falls under the administration of Mauritius.
We boarded the ship and we had a deluxe room which included shower en-suite and also we had a TV. This was important as we were fully during the Euro 2008 period. Watched Croatia play and had a horrible dinner of "Chicken a la King"
After a day and a half of cruising, including my wife's sea sickness, we finally arrived to our destination. We were met by our tour operator who whisked us in 4x4 drive to the hotel as the island though small is quite hilly. Arriving at the small village of Mourouk, where our hotel was found we checked in and started exploring the rooms and the hotel area.
The beaches were wide and there was practically no one.
Afterwards we set for lunch and went to a scenic restaurant with magnificent views on the southern part of the island called La Detente, where we spent some time before going back to the hotel.
After some sleep and dining at the hotel restaurant, we had to go to bed as we were flying back early the next day.
