Seychelles is a group of 115 islands, located in the Indian Ocean, just east of Somalia in eastern Africa. Majority of islands in this island chain are uninhabited, many being nature reserves.

I jumped into our scorching hot car, practically burning myself on the seat. Above us, the sun shone down relentlessly, hardly a cloud in the sky to threaten its brilliance. It was 3pm and so far we had hardly done anything. That morning we had visited the butchers only to find they were closed. We… Read More
