Why I don’t deserve to be called a Mauritian
Mauritius is like paradise or as famous author Mark Twain said
“God created Mauritius first and then paradise was copied after it..” (Very true!)
With this is mind, I feel that when people ask me ‘where are you from?’ I don’t really deserve to say that I come from Mauritius. This is because I see myself as British, I was born in the UK and spent all my life here. I can’t speak creole (the language of Mauritius) and I don’t really do anything that is typically Mauritian.
Hold on, so why on earth am I writing this website that is all about Mauritius!?
Setting up this blog has made me want to find out so much about what the amazing island has to offer and has made me re-live our family holidays to the paradise island. As a child I took our trips to Mauritius for granted.
But now when I go I’m going to make sure I don’t take anything for granted; the beaches, the weather, the people, my family over there and even the smells! Oh and how I forget the tasty food! Mauritian roti with a good old chicken curry is simply divine.
I’m so excited for us to discover Mauritius together, for me to share some great family stories from the island and for my Dad to tell you all about what the Real Mauritius is really like.
Let’s enjoy the ride!
