The Best Bed in the World…

During the one hour drive from Mauritius’ Sir Seewoosagur Ramgoolam International Airport to our resort, we learned the following things:
Motorcycle drivers in Mauritius are….adventurous;
Headlights appear to be optional;
Lanes are more of a guideline than a rule.

We arrived at the resort slightly bedraggled and very hungry. We were greeted warmly by the staff at the Intercontinental , sat down in the magnificent lobby, offered free cocktails while they checked us in and arranged our dinner.

I’d been looking forward to my first glass of wine in Mauritius all week and it didn’t disappoint.

I’m yet to try the bath but it’s almost big enough to swim in (this photo doesn’t really capture the size of this thing; it’s about seven feet long):

For me though it was all about the bed. The Best. Bed. In the World.

…and now we’re all clean and rested, today we begin exploring…
