Man’s Not Old… Yet!

Hello guys! I’m sure you’ve all been wondering where the heck I’ve been, and why I haven’t posted anything for a while now. Well, the truth is that I’ve been trying to find a new balance between school, blogging and my own social life in general. There is also the fact that procrastination is a demon I need to deal with, I’m still human ;). 

I recently turned 21 on the 5th of October!  And I am shook! It still hasn’t sunk in yet. I am now recognized as an adult everywhere around the world! Guys, it was a lot to process but hey, man’s not old… yet!!!! I realized my life has just begun and there’s so much ahead of me by God’s grace. I’ll let you know how it’s going when I hit 25.

Troux aux Biches Beach

 

I’m island bound again!! My stay in Cameroon came to an end just as my summer break was nearing it’s end. I have to say, I missed this place. There’s just a certain something about Mauritius that makes you yearn for it.

Since I hadn’t been around for about 2 months, my friends and I organised an impromptu trip to the beach. Mauritius is known for its numerous beautiful beaches but, so far,  I’d only been to  3 of them. So in order to widen my repertoire, I opted to go to Troux aux Biches located in the North West of Mauritius

So I know it’s been a long minute since I posted and you must have wondered “where is this chick and what is she up to?”. Well let’s just say life happened. I had finals to prepare for, internships to find and a whole lot of stuff going on. But I do apologize for the lack of posts and I’ll try to improve on my frequency.

Nevertheless, I managed to procure an internship back in Cameroon, my home country, and I’ve been here for approximately 3 – 4 weeks. After holing up in my house for quite sometime, I decided that I was gonna explore my town a little bit more and document some of the places that I would recommend if you ever happened to come by.

Voile Bleu

​Hi loves, it’s been a long while hasn’t it? So basically half the year has gone by. I was so swamped with Uni I didn’t even notice how quickly time was flying. I’m still a bit shook when I think its already summer break. Well I guess that means I’ll be posting more frequently here *Hehe*.

Hi there, my name is Embelle but most people call me Ember because they find my name hard to pronounce. I’m a Cameroonian currently studying on the island of Mauritius.

Before I came here, I tried to do a little research on the country since I had actually never heard of the place until I knew I was going to go to university there. I scoured the internet in search of all the information I needed, but I was soon disappointed when all I could find about the island was mainly focused on its touristic appeal. There was nothing that showed the lifestyle of the people. The only pictures I could find were of the beautiful sandy beaches and all the hotels in the island. I was suddenly worried that I was going to be thrown into some limbo populated mainly by Indians and tourists. This made me a little anxious but at the same excited by all the possibilities available.

All this to say that I have decided to make this blog to educate people on the country, showing them the lifestyle of an average student; in other words showing you life here on a tight budget. I’m looking forward to share all my adventures with you and I hope I’d inspire you to visit this little beautiful paradise.
