Mauritius: Somewhere In the Very Middle of the Ocean

When my friends first got the idea of going to Mauritius, to be honest with you I didn’t even know where this country was in the world. I had no idea that it was going to be one of the greatest experiences of my life where I got to swim with dolphins in an open sea just as they were passing by through the ocean, where I got to see how a mixture of people can blend so well together from Africa to India and from India to Europe and live happily, but most impressively where this giant tortoise who was bigger than me came next to me and asked for affection, as playful as a dog. Nevertheless, when we got into the latest and biggest Emirates plane in the world I have started to sense that this place is something a little bit more than a paradise island with sand, sea and palm trees
