Travel Diaries - Mauritius Day One

by 9:59 PM 17 comments
Hello people.
Welcome to Rocket Looks !!!
We are growing, yes at great speed i think, firstly i introduced Fashion to you, then Crafts, Cooking, Inspiration and now i am going to start Travel Diaries also, which will be a lot of fun for all of you.
Because everyone likes to explore the beautiful world, so why not join hands and make familiar to each other with the beautiful gems of our surroundings.
My dad also loves travelling, we have been to many places in India but never got a chance to stamp our Passport, luckily it has changed in my case after my marriage due to my beloved husband, he has made my life more brighter than sun. I do have so many magical things in my box, so stay tuned for upcoming posts.
Mauritius, a place, which could take anyone imagination into romance, love, beautiful beaches . It is like a small paradise, loaded with historic sights, cultural diversity, miles of gorgeous beaches and off-shore coral reefs and abundant natural beauty, including game reserves and national parks, it is no wonder this island attracts those looking for a special kind of holiday location.
We have been there on our 1st Honeymoon, so it has very special memories with me. We stayed in Casuarina hotel, which was sea facing site, very adequately spaced out. Enjoy the view in pictures.

There is very famous fort also ,Fort Adelaide, which was built in a very strategic location on higher lands of Port Louis at 240 feet above sea level. The location offers a vast panorama on Port-Louis and its harbor. The British built this fortress in fear of a civil war from the remaining French settlers on the island and also for the purpose of guarding the harbor against enemy attacks.

The very famous church, Marie Reine de la Paix where so many Bollywood films have been shot. It is located on the upper land of Signal mountain from where, the location overlooks the whole city of Port Louis.

Then we headed for some shopping in Bagatelle shopping mall, which has all the famous outlets and the mall is decorated with so many gifts, bells, santa clause and Christmas tree which looked very beautiful.

Another place to visit, is the Port Louis central market – the market is a fun place to visit and the ideal place to find many local made products, textiles, Mauritian spices, fruits and many souvenirs for very cheap prices. It was decorated with so many colourful umbrellas during Christmas, which protected us from sunlight and looked good too.

Now tell who is looking Cute, me or bear. Offcourse ME
