I left my heart in Moçambique
There is no better way to close off a year than with a much-needed and well-deserved vacation. So my family and I decided to do just that (with months of planning of course). This would also be the first time we would all be out of the country together. So on the 18th of December we boarded and set sail to the Portuguese Islands…
After 3 days at sea we arrived at Ilha De Moçambique (1 of 3 islands we were to stop at). As one of UNESCO’s World Heritage Sites, this island’s beauty is definitely one to behold in person. The island’s history is too detailed to post about but you absolutely feel its rich heritage as you navigate it’s streets.
I’ve selected what I think are the best images I’ve snapped during our time there.
A word to the wise, should you ever decide to visit the island during the summer time, do not underestimate the weather. I did and now I’m a walking example of 50 shades (in the literal sense).
We then embarked for the next island Pomene. Unfortunately, due to unfavourable weather conditions we weren’t allowed to visit the island. Our next and final stop would be the Portuguese Island.
It’s the 24th of December and I’m woken up by the sounds of the anchors of the ship descending into the ocean. Now unlike Ilha De Moçambique (purely for sight-seeing), this island was a total vibe. From its crystalline water to its soft white beach sand, I couldn’t help but utter Coldplay lyrics approaching it [Para, Para, Paradise]. We practically spent the entire day there. Again, I’ve shared the best snaps of our time there. [Let jealousy ensue]
Addressing the obvious, this was not a style piece. This was one experience, but one of many I hope to share in the future!
Thank you for Reading!
