Seychelles, a small island in East Africa, a relaxation from stressful cities, people & leeches. There are only 90, 000 dwellers, their main source of income is Tourism & the crime rate is low. They speak Creole, French & English. It’s a very simple place to live in, no wonder why many people around the globe choose to have their staycation in this lil island. It reminds me of my relative’s province, when I once had my vacation in Ilocos Sur. Living in a humble abode, the beach is just nearby & you can just take a walk with your hubby and appreciate life together.๐ŸŒ

Wonder how Seychelles became Seychelles? Lemme share you about what I’ve learned from our chauffeur slash tourist guide. Seychelles was just a quiet island before with no one inhabiting the place. In olden times Arabs used to take slaves from East Africa (Ethiopia, Somalia,etc) but the Brits stopped them and took the slaves and kept them in Seychelles Island. There begun the journey for freedom of the slaves and they developed their country with the help of the British government. During the British colonization their main source of income were peppermint & coco production. When they became independent on the year 1960s, construction of Seychelles Airport started their break away to the Tourism World and became one of the sought-after attractions in the world. By the way, before when they didn’t have an airport, they used to travel via boat so it took like 2-3 day ride going to their neighbouring countries.๐Ÿ˜ฒ

So Mr. Francis the chauffeur, oriented us where to go to before going to places, our aim is to visit Victoria, Eden Island & a nice beach to chill with.๐Ÿš˜

That island with lots of red roof is an artificial island called ‘Eden Island’ built and owned by South Africans. People don’t only visit Seychelles, some of them migrate here to live a simple and enjoyable beach life, most of them are whites, including South Africans. They actually make pretty good businesses here.๐Ÿž

Mi amore. I’m loving him more after our wedding. My favorite view. My heart is bursting with love right now. He’s my Oasis of Calm, while I’m his Roaring Thunder. Lol
An enigma to me that rings true, someone will really accept you for who you are & won’t make a big fuss out of it.๐Ÿ–

The reflection of the sunset slapping this scenic view is my own kind of bliss. Getting married is a relief, it’s like you’ve dislodged a wishbone out of your throat. Yeah, that kind of feeling.๐Ÿš๐ŸŒ…

Here’s a truck load of big fishes. Its like Philippines huh. Most of it actually…. key chains, accessories, shells…it’s just that Seychelles is very overrated, 10x more expensive than the Philippines, 2x more expensive than UAE & Turkey.๐ŸŸ๐Ÿฆ

These big turtles were rescued from the forest when they have to develop it to residential areas. These turtles live only by land. Some do steal these turtles at night so they barricaded it with wires. Unluckily, they don’t have cctv… guess it would be more effective.๐Ÿข๐Ÿข๐Ÿข

Intead of eating fish, we cooked lots of pork since it’s cheaper here…haha. We had our last supper at the veranda, just simply fidgeting & talking about stuffs, knowing more about each other…everyday you will discover more about the deep feelings and emotions of one another…and that for me is a very important milestone to our relationship as husband & wife.๐Ÿ’‘

This stamp symbol of Seychelles got us thinking that it looks like a butt or a peach…๐Ÿ‘

IMG_20180405_073707_574.jpg

Then I saw this coco de mer, the world’s largest nut & can only be found in Seychelles. So we figured out that the symbol is a nut, coco de mer.๐Ÿ˜…

My shoes got me to diff countries. I love them… I’ve got lots but this pair didn’t fail to make me feel comfy on my travels. here’s to more adventures to come, my favorite shoes!!!! Fred’s in love with his boat shoes as well, he asked to take a picture of it. Haha.๐Ÿพ๐Ÿพ

As I thumbed through the pages of my life, I’ve figured out that tho the world didn’t always glide calmly with me, I am still blessed by spiritual Manna, heaven poured right before my eyes. That gives me an ultra energy that warped my body to go on & not let go of who I want to become. I was able to achieve my goals in upgrading my career, had a better & more satisfying working environment, garnered true friends along the way, & stayed committed to a relationship. With these blessings, I felt like I’ve reach my own zenith of my small successes intertwined, & I guess I’m ready for it. Yes I am married. And I am happy. We’re both happy. I hope the one who’s reading this is also happy. May all the bitterness of your heart be wiped away & kept anew with more joyful memories. Thank you for reading. ๐Ÿ˜—
