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).

  • Home at Beit Douma, this is how a traditional restored 19th century Lebanese mountain home looks like from the inside. Douma is one of the best-preserved villages in Lebanon, lies at an altitude of over 1000 meters.  The name in Phoenician means “calm and rest”, in Greek it means “house”. 🇱🇧 #Home
  • I believe in giving people time...Time to process the good and the bad because there is something so beautiful about unforced bonds. 
I’m a forever kind of person. I don’t have room for temporary. I believe in big love, of growing old with your friends and soulmates. I believe in being there for people through thick and thin. I believe in not giving up when things get tough. I believe in relationships that can make it through everything... 💫
  • Will probably delete this later but just couldn’t NOT post this video! I’ve always dreamed raising a golden retriever since I was a little girl, and in February, it became a reality. This was Charlie at 3 months and slide over the photo number 2, today at 8 months. 2 more weeks and I’ll be back with him!!! Share your advices on raising a Golden ❤️ I would love to hear your experiences.
  • I read once that some people have the ability to magnetize the people they need to help push them even further into greatness. Some take them for granted, some don't see it because they are too blind. But for those who can see it, be grateful for it, because even if you think you don't need them, one day you might understand the chemistry 💕
  • Bird’s eye view from @joalimaldives 
I can never get bored of this view! 😍
  • In reality, if you really think about it, to miss someone is sort of missing a part of yourself. You miss the way you felt alive on adventures and sharing ideas... Because the right people make you want to throw away the plans you originally had, for a new one without having to say ‘hmm’ and it’s no longer forcing things... it’s been a while since I looked back at some memories in S.E Asia, It taught me so much, but also, it’s a chapter of my life that I feel I’ve closed a long time ago.
  • Passion and inspiration are so very powerful and can easily be intimidating and out of reach sometimes. 
I haven’t been able to pick up my camera yet... Which is odd because, my camera is my source of ‘connection’ to almost everything. 
Sometimes you’re just not ready... And I’m not going to push myself. I’ll try again tomorrow 😊
  • Once upon a time in Kenya 🇰🇪- I’m trying really hard remembering their names, but all that comes to mind is Sophie, I’m sure one of them is called Sophie... Not sure why? Don’t you think? 😊 
Have an incredible weekend everyone 💕
  • Sunrise in Madeira Island. 
It’s been a while since I felt inspired to pick up my camera and go. Maybe it’s the fact that, despite my love for the long summers and flip flops, I’m ready for the unknown, the Scandinavian winters, the daring adventures & new beginnings. 
I’m ready for the sleepless nights under the northern lights and the exceptional early pink sunrises. Someone special told me to learn to be where my feet is... to be present where I am at the moment... Possibly the best advice I’ve heard in a long time, but, this caption refutes it. 😊 I’ll try again tomorrow 💕
  • Not long before the grand re-opening of @gili.lankanfushi in Maldives. The island is close to my heart and we cannot wait to celebrate the opening on the 1st of December 🏖
  • At an altitude of 1800 meters... Ixsir winery in Lebanon is one of the popular winery in the country. Their Winery was named by CNN as one of the greenest building in the world, and lately won the international A+ Award. 🇱🇧
  • Looking back at some photos this morning. This was taken 3 years ago in Seychelles at @fsseychelles - Definitely one of the best views I’ve seen during my travels.
