Internet in Paradise does not come easy

It's been a while since i promised to start blogging again! I do have a genuine reason, however. I'm currently in Mauritius, for 4 weeks, and don't have regular access to the net. I guess i should start from the beginning. The flight from the UK to Mauritius was an adventure in itself, a 15 hour journey, stopping over in Zurich and the Seychelles. The only entertainment to hand was a rather shoddy looking projector screen at the front of the plane and a few magazines i had picked up. When the plane stopped over to pick up passengers at Zurich the pilot/stewards very kindly turned the air con off and allowed the heat from the engines/cabin to melt us(!). I shouldn't complain really, the food was good (yep, actually 'good', not just 'decent' or 'passable') and we also got very good views from the plane between the UK and France and when landing in the Seychelles and Mauritius. Can't really write much more than this right now, so will leave with a few pics i managed to take.
(will upload more on Flickr later on)

Thanks for the replies!

@Bruno I prefer Air Mtius, but Air Seychelles were a lot cheaper...only downside was the 2 stopovers!

Oh I missed this post! I don't know what I'll do when I go back home. But with hubby in tow I'll show him around and hopefully that'd exhaust me so much that I wouldn't miss internet. I'm hoping...
