Yes, Mauritius is a real country

February 27, 2011

A lot of people ask me where the most unique place I have ever been is and after much thought and consideration, I decided that it is Mauritius.

Mauritius is a little tiny island off the coast of Africa, just behind Madagascar

Now you may not have known Mauritius exsisted before this post, but that’s just because it’s one the best kept secrets of the world. Mark Twain said, after visiting the small island that, “Mauritius was made first, then heaven was copied from it.” That’s a pretty big statement.

And while it is definitely beautiful, there is not too much to do besides lounge on the beach and sip some drinks.

For a little excitment try the adventure park on the island. They have a series of rope courses and zip lines.  *These are pretty intense obstacles and you shouldn’t attempt if you’re afraid of heights or not really athletic*
