Who can resist a 10-day journey to 3 paradise islands in the Indian Ocean?
Welcome to the Seychelles!
Seychelles’ 115 granite and coral islands extend from between 4 and 10 degrees south of the equator and lie between 298 miles and 994 miles from the east coast of Africa in the western Indian Ocean.
The islands of the Seychelles are an archipelago of timeless beauty, tranquility and harmony, famous for its world-beating beaches and for its great diversity of fauna and flora, which rolls from lush forests down to the warm azure ocean.
In Mahé, La Digue, and Praslin, you will encounter happy and welcoming Seychellois, surf, dive, snorkel, hike, swim in clear blue waters, savor delicious Creole cuisine, and much more…

Cooking in paradise…Coconut fish curry from The Seychelles
2 lbs firm fleshed fish, like snapper or Burumundi
1 large onion, chopped
1-2 Tbsp homemade massalé (stay tuned for this recipe)
1 tsp ground turmeric
3 cloves garlic, crushed
2 inch piece of ginger, grated
2 tsp dried thyme leaves (or fresh, if you have it)
1-2 Tbsp tamarind paste (I like just 1)
1 can light coconut milk (water could be used here instead)
The Seychelles Paradise-flycatcher is a rare bird from the genus of paradise-flycatchers within the family Monarchidae. It is endemic to the Seychelles.
The length of the males is about 7.8 inches. In addition there are two long black central tail feathers which can reach a length of 11.8 inches. The males are entirely glossy black with a deep blue sheen. The upper parts of the females including wings and tail are reddish brown.
It lives in the Veuve Nature Reserve on La Digue, Seychelles, where it inhabits dense Calophyllum forests. Although a reservation was made especially for this bird, it is common to see it outside in the trees or even in the garden of the Seichellois people. Plans were made to get this bird back into the wild on other islands of the Seychelles, but so far, the numbers stayed the same. The bird’s conversation status is “critically endangered.”
