La Digue (Seychelles time)

It’s been a little while but it’s Seychelles Time again!

La Digue is the third most populated island in the Seychelles.  From Praslin it is a 15 minute ferry trip.  Going to La Digue really is like going back in time, its so quiet and life is slow there!

We recently took Arthur for the first time with Mum and Dad.  This was Arthur’s first time on a boat, he was really good and loved looking overboard, particularly at the boats wake.

La Digue is a Awesome place to hire bikes, its the best way to get around the island and its really safe as there are hardly any cars at all.  We decided not to this time as we wanted to be able to keep Arthur in the shade so the push chair was the best for that.  We walked around the North side of the island which is nice and quiet, a really beautiful walk.

We followed the road around to the George Camile gallery, Arthur had lots of fun crawling around there, although I think thats more due to the fact the floor was nice and cool rather than him being particularly interested in the art!  To be honest he kinda took over the place!!!

Dad bought a nice Embossed copper picture in there, they had been looking forward to visiting his gallery as his stuff had caught their eye on Mahe, last time they were visiting in the Summer.  Mark and I house sat for George Camile over new year so it is nice that they now own some of his work.  If you would like to check out his website take a look here 

This time we didn’t walk round to the Coconut plantation where the gorgeous Anse Source d’Argent beach is as it was a little far to go without bikes and plus the walk around the North coast took us longer than expected!  Anyway here is a picture from a previous trip as its really pretty so you might want to see 🙂  It’s in the National Geographic top 10 beaches in the world so it can’t be half bad right!!

So thats it for now!  Hope you enjoyed a little bit of Seychelles time, see you next time!

Boat Trips {Seychelles Time}

This is the first ‘Seychelles Time’ post.  I’m going to start with the ultimate!  Boat trips.  We have been lucky enough to get to go on some amazing boats and have had opportunities to do some fantastic boat trips.

We have yet to take Arthur on a boat trip but I imagine it won’t be too long!

There are some gorgeous little islands that surround Praslin that are beautiful to snorkel and swim by.  The favourite of boat skippers seem to be the sister islands (grande soeur and petite soeur), Coco island, and Félicité.

Félicité is a private island where some mega luxury apartments were being built but the project ran out of money and it has been abandoned.  Now it looks like doctor evils lair!

Coco island was actually used in a Carling beer tv advert.  The one where the crab is running on a treadmill to keep the fridge cool!?

Here are some pictures of the islands, us and the fun things you find on these trips 🙂 I hope you enjoy Seychelles Time

Seychelles Time

Not so long ago I wrote a post about an average day for me. It led me on to wanting to write down the things we do outside of our daily routine. These things me and Mark call ‘Seychelles Time’. It could be anything from going to the beach, going for a walk, swimming, diving, lunch, dinner. Anything where we are taking advantage of the fact we live in the Seychelles.

It is surprisingly easy to forget that we live in a beautiful place and daily life can often get in the way of that, even here! We make sure that at least one day a week, although preferably more depending on how busy things are for Mark at work, we take some Seychelles Time.

I thought I would do these as kind of a mini series of posts!

So watch this space for updates and take a while to enjoy some ‘Seychelles Time’ with us!
