This is #MyMauritius – a video journey

It’s one of the most beautiful islands I’ve had the privilege of visiting (twice)! There’s just something absolutely magical about this island with its the crystal-clear lagoons and lofty peaks, fabulous food, lovely people and stunning resorts. This island is Mauritius! I’ve created a video of my journey around the island and all the wondrous experiences I had. Oh, and I’ve compiled a list (below the video) of where the various scenes were filmed. Gosh, watching the images makes me want to go back (again)! I hope you enjoy my Mauritius video! 🙂

    Hello, Keith. You did right by leaving your bank career. Life in travel is really awesome. Let me tell a few words regarding this article. You’ve made a really gorgeous video. Mauritius is a must visited place by every traveler. To be honest, I have never been there. However, I have heard a lot of wonderful words about that country. One of them is a colorful earth in MAuritus. Scientists still have not discovered how that kind of earth can exist in the world. Your post taught me many new things about Mauritius. I plan to visit it.

    Thank you very much, Keith, Keep sharing your knowledge with us !
