Then we went for a walk to the Eiffel Tower.

This was on the way there.

The Mona Lisa was on my Paris bucket list so we went to the Louvre.

 We went right when they opened and I was able to get some photos without too many people. Then the crowds started rolling in deep.

Then Mauritius.

Mauritius is an island off the southeast coast of Africa, it neighbors Madagascar. 

It has a majority Indian population but has influences from Africa, India, France, and China. This is one of the most eclectic places I've been to and it's where I fell in love with Indian food.

We went on a quad trip. Started with sight seeing and ended with breaking away from the group and speeding like nut jobs with a small group of crazies.

 Sugar cane is Mauritius's farming crop. Also used in their local rum.

 Palm tree heaven.

Palm tree heaven.

My favorite part was riding for a few hours to get to this waterfall. Then hiking down, jumping in, and swimming behind the waterfall to chill in a small cave. Followed by amazing Indian food.

Literally in the middle of nowhere. 

 Took this photo of Scott's work colleagues to show how deep in the forest we went.

Gorgeous sunsets every day we were there. Go Africa.
