Travel has been an eye opener for me. It’s left me speechless, brought me to tears, amazed me, enraged me, educated me and forever changed me.

Have you been yet to Mauritius? If your kids are checking destinations off on a map, they might be begging you to plan a trip here. It’s a beautiful island in the Indian Ocean, east of Madagascar (the 180th largest nation in the world).
