Yep, thanks to our instafriend, we cherish that picture and the inscription. In fact I could say that was the highlight of our trip in Switzerland.

Brig was a nice little town, with neat and clean streets and life at a leisurley pace. The trains were appealing and less crowded compared to Milan and Paris.

Now on to more photographs.

1.The Glacier Express - World's slowest express train.

2. A view of the Alps from the train.

My itinerary 2013 - Vacation trip to Mauritius

04 Jun 2013 My birthday. The day will dawn as usual in my present location. Early morning flight to Mauritius. Breakfast on the 45 minutes flight to a technical stopover at Chennai, my birth province. Lunch mid-air on flight over the Indian Ocean. Dinner at Intercontinental Hotel at Barclava, about 9 miles from the capital Port Louis.

And that is day one of the 7 day/6 night trip to Mauriitus. My first daughter has already arrived from U.S.A. with her husband and my two grandboys. We two oldies plus my second daughter and our grandgirl and in all whole family of 5 adults and three grandchildren.

Day 2 Mauritius
After breakfast in the morning, a full day North Island tour. Visit to the capital city Port Louis , Place d' Armes with its French colonial buildings, the eventful Champ de Mars racecourse, and the exotic Caudan Waterfront . Dinner and overnight stay at the hotel.

Day 3 Mauritius
After breakfast in the morning, a full day South Island tour. Visit the Trou aux Cerfs, the crater of an extinct volcano. Proceed to Grand Bassin, a natural lake at the base of volcanic crater and a pilgrimage place for Hindus. Later, visit Chamarel (Colored Earth), with its vibrant hues and waterfall. Dinner and overnight stay at the hotel.

Day 4 Mauritius
After breakfast in the morning, a full day Excursion To Ile Aux Cerfs. An emerald lagoon, accessible by speed boat. With clear waters and endless beaches, it is a heaven for lovers of the sea, sand and sun. Enjoy the abundant water sports offered here. In the evening, return to the hotel for dinner and overnight stay.

Day 5 Mauritius
After breakfast in the morning, enjoy the rest of the day at leisure. Undersea walk, deep sea fishing dive on the beautiful beaches. In the evening, have dinner at the hotel. Stay overnight at the hotel.

Day 6 Mauritius
Day of leisure and laziness on the beach.

Day 7 Depart Mauritius
After breakfast in the morning, transfer to the airport for onward journey.

Last time around, I did not keep a track of all places visited in Switzerland, Italy and France. ( And that is the reason why I am still grappling with the innumerable photos and videos and present those in a coherent fashion plus I was busy winding up my investments and preparing for really lazy days. Anyway I shall start with Pompeii in this post.) This time around, I have decided to document all details in detail.

My daughters didn't plan a visit to Pompeii. When we reached Rome, I found out that Pompeii was not far off and it will be a sin not to visit it after travelling that close. So we cut off one day in Rome and took a one-day tour of Pompeii by bus. ( While in school, we had a non-detailed text of Last Days of Pompeii by baron Edward Bulwer-Lytton -1834, which inspired my curiosity just like a painting in Milan inspired Lytton to write that novel. To this day, I do not know why it was called a non-detailed text, when in fact it was a detailed text, though abridged.)

August 24,0079, the day on which Mount Vesuvius erupted and buried Pompeii.

A lifetime is likely not enough time to physically visit the many places on this planet we all call home,
so thank you for sharing your family's journey's.

I remember (barely there was no internet when I was at skool) spending time in school History class learning about the Roman Empire, and somewhere in there about Pompeii and it's burial when Mount Vesuvius erupted.

Just one of the awesome things the internet has brought us, the ability to visit far off places ...
