Have you ever had the urge to just book a ticket, pack your bags, and head to somewhere new just to get out of reality even for a day or two?
Well I never thought I would, but I did. Where did I end up? In paradise 😍
It took me about 2 hours deciding and less than an hour to settle the whole thing. (Well there really is nothing much to plan, just the accomodation since plane tickets was just a click away and visa was upon arrival.) It was so last minute that I went alone because none of my friends could take a day off from work to accompany me.
It was a 4 hr and 40 mins plane ride as per the On Air information but even with almost an hour delay of departure, we arrived as scheduled.
From the airport to the hotel it was a 26mins drive, and if you have a nice and cool cab driver, he can give you a free tour (which I got) as the sites you’ll be driving through is what Mahe Island is known for.
I booked a Mountain View room yet the room that was given to me was a Sea View room hence my breathtaking view.
I spent most of my time just chilling by the beach and getting a tan, wherein I am in my most happy place.
The tanned life, is what I love to call it. And it’s the best feeling ever, especially with my lazy beach bum. Lol
What I loved most about my stay was watching the sunset by the beach.
The beautiful sunset, by the beach, alone.
Imagine how peaceful and serene it was, I can’t even begin to describe how amazing it felt to be in that moment. To close my eyes, breathe in the fresh air, hear the sound of waves crashing, and appreciate how beautiful life is then and there. That all I could do was talk to Him, thank Him for the many good things, and surrender to Him at that moment.
But then I had to go back to reality..
I spent two days on the island in total and had to fly back in time for my next duty, which was that same night I got back in the sandpit.
This experience is indeed one for the books.
✅ Travel Alone
✅ Mahe Island, Seychelles
I never thought I’d travel alone this soon, because to be honest, I would always consider doing so but I never really have the courage to do so. But having to finally experience it, I will never have second thoughts about traveling alone, ever again.
Thank You, Big Man.
