Cumulus clouds, calm seas, dory and anchor.

A perfect postcard? I may be wrong but it seemed like this cumulus was sending lots of rain behind the faraway island. Thanks for like!

It would have fun to have a single engine aircraft and to fly around this island nation. At fist, when I saw the pictures of your flight in, I thought maybe you were able to get a plane ride. I see that it was just the arrival shots.

The order of the pictures are inversed, when you click at the Country label you'll see them in the right order. Pictures from the low flying plane were taken when I left Mauritius, I had a window seat and it was still day.

If you're willing to pay enough money it might be possible in Mauritius to get a private 'fly around the islands' plane, I think.

The way I like to get a flight is to go to the local landing strip and just hang around, looking for ways I can make myself useful. If I can help someone that is good for me. I learned to fly at one point and can fly a single engine air craft. I have been loaned planes to fly by people who hardly knew me. These islands look like a great place to go for a flight.

Mauritius is very small, they have good maintained roads and extensive sea exploring facilities.

I would like to have your skills, it must be really something to be able to sustain yourself where ever you go and do things you like to do.

It was a lovely day there, the shimmering sea, the far away Islands, the color of the water, the cloud formations and not to forget the fine weather at that moment.

Thanks for LIKE Alireza Javaheri!
