Our second stop was not just a stop, it was a drive and then a ferry stop away to an Island called Silhouette Island and lies 20 km northwest of Mahé in the Seychelles. It is the third largest granitic island in the Seychelles. It has an area of 20 km2 and has a population of about 200, mostly workers on the island. Mount Dubon being a backdrop reaching a height of 780mtrs. Silhouette Island is also home to many species as it is a rainforest type island. With so much history on the island itself, it almost feels as if no one ever left. It’s also known to have one of the best dive centers and hikes in Seychelles. We arrived 40 minutes by ferry to Hilton Seychelles Labriz Resort & Spa

Here is a small review

The Rooms

We booked our one bedroom beach front with swimming pool a couple weeks in advance knowingly that these were very popular with tourists. 111 air-conditioned villas with bath, outdoor shower, hairdryer, TV, DVD player, minibar, espresso machines (Deluxe Villas), tea/coffee facilities, terrace and courtyard garden. Some Beach Villas have a plunge pool. Deluxe Pool Villas have a separate outdoor dining pavilion and a swimming pool

Dining

The Grann Kaz Plantation House restaurant at Hilton Labriz serves traditional Creole cuisine, while an Italian restaurant Portebello, and the Teppanyaki and Sakura restaurants offer a more international flavour by blending Asian and European influences. The Café Dauban (main restaurant) offers varied theme dinners and the bar and the pizzeria offers lighter options for lunch. Guests staying on Half Board at Labriz may dine-around at any of the hotel’s restaurants (excluding Teppanyaki).

  • Soooo... Weekends in Dubai has resulted at the beach since summer has kicked in!! Here is one of my favorite barefoot lunch spots ❤️ Have you been here?
  • Maldives, you are my favorite distraction 🐠
  • I found a little Tuscany in Dubai!! On small roads in the countryside in Val d’Orcia, sunflowers bloom in summer and it gives you a sense of happiness. On my hunt for inspiration of Italy in the UAE, I found a little bit of Tuscany and happiness in Dubai🌻

  • Back in the desert 🐫 and I think summer just kicked in 🤷🏼‍♀️
  • I woke up right here on my back way from Voss to Oslo. 350 metres above Oslo city and right in Nordmarka forest🌳
  • I could be staring at the same mountains that loomed over passing Vikings and I’m in love... Wouldn’t you be?
  • From Oslo, I took the NSB train to Myrdal which is a 5 hour journey, then boarded the Flåm Railway, named by @natgeotravel one of the most beautiful train journey in Europe taking you through west Norway’s most beautiful scenery. Here we stopped for 10 minutes to step out of the railway for pictures. Can you see Chloè by the window too? ☺️
  • The sun doesn’t rise till around 9am, so it gave me a lot of time to sleep in. Flåm is a small village in southwestern Norway, in an area known for its fjords. It sits at the end of Aurlandsfjord. It’s peaceful, its historical, it’s quiet and it’s not a place you will find all over social media. I found these little red cabins while walking around the small village trying not to slip on the ice that covers the road! I did though, I slipped, laughed got bruised and luckily my camera didn’t fall into the water... but it was so close!
  • I’ve found Kattegat ♥️
  • I was always in a hurry to be someone, always in a hurry to become something and do everything. I didn’t waste my time on things or people that would get me nowhere. I crave a slow life, a simple life filled with adventures. No fast cars or expensive homes and for almost all my life, I’ve built a life in which I never needed to escape from. This is my beautiful reality and this photo represents that to me.
  • I was thinking of a caption that can relate to what I was thinking... but the truth is, simple... I was thinking of absolutely nothing at all... just the fact that I was waking up in the middle of a frozen sea. ♥️
  • Gelato for breakfast and it’s melting!! An obvious one ofcourse 😊 That was my next hunt for ‘inspiration in finding a little bit of Italy in the UAE’  project with @theitalianwayuae How many times a day would you have Gelato in Italy? For me, it was around 4-5!! #TheItalianWay
