In November 2012 we Visited 3 islands in the Seychelles: Mahe, Praslin and La Dieg. This ia a personal experience, very unlike a bling travel movie. It was a low cost DIY holiday and we relied on guest house accomodation, ferries and the local bus service. JIm, my husband and I shared the camera work and appeared in the pictures, taking turns. The islanders are wonderful people - friendly, helpful, generous and very laid back. We cooked most of our own meals and even shared some of them with local folk. When Ethiopian Airlines cancelled our return flight we were kindly hosted at the Coral Sands Hotel on the Mahe island for a few days. What a 4 star setback! For senior backpackers this was the ultimate treat. Blue waters, white sands and of course, the Garden of Eden.
Thank you, Seychelles!
