The Seychelles in pictures

Thursday 30 May 2013
The viewpoint on Mahe Island

You know that misery that descends upon you when you come back from a great trip? Mine took a week to arrive, but has just hit me with full force. I started writing up my piece on the Seychelles this evening, and I just want to weep. Because I want to be in the Seychelles so baaad.

Boo fecking hoo, right? I know, I know. I shouldn't complain that I have just been to the Seychelles, which I know I am technically doing. But.... but.... I want to go there now! I want to feel that heat, the air that's so warm even at 6am (yes, I was up at 6am). I want to go in the warm water, I want to lay on the sand. I want to eat tuna sashimi that tastes like it's hopped from the sea onto my plate. I WANT A CREOLE MOJITO.

The best that I could do is eat a tuna sandwich, whack the heating up and drink Bacardi. But, you know? It's not quite the same thing.

So, to make the pain even worse, I thought I would pop up a few of my favourite pictures up on the blog before I get my act together and write it all up properly here.
