Travelling alone for 7 weeks in Feb-March....!!!!! Any TIPS?

Beitragvon PrincessCaz » Di Jan 24, 2006 0:49

Hi there!

Im a med student from the UK coming to Mauritius for 7 weeks at the end of Feb! I'll be doing a bit of light work in the SSRN hospital and plan to enjoy myself big time!

Bit nervous about travelling on my own, but I'll hopefully make lots of friends!!
Also flying with Air France, and i am now totally petrified to fly with them now, as i was reading about how everyone hates them! and im really bad at flying!!!! urgh!

But just wondering if anyone has any tips for my stay in Mauritius? Any good places to go to, to meet fun people?! What not to do?!
I'd appreciate any info, whatsoever!

If anyone's around when im there, let me know!!!

Think im going to be staying in Trou Aux Biches... What's it like?? Anyone know?

Cheers! Caroline x

Hello from a fellow independent traveller! :ploppop
I will be in Mauritius from March 18-March 27th, and I will be on my own the whole time. (and I would love to hang out!!!)
I will be staying from the 18th until the 24th in Trou au Biches, and from the 24th until the 27th in Mahebourg, before I depart.
I plan on visiting the Black River Gorges Park, the Botanical Gardens in Pamplemouses, as well as doing plenty of diving (well, I at least plan on diving three times).
I am sure that I will be safe there on my own, but I have wanted to meet other travellers, so that things are more fun, and perhaps we can do things that otherwise might not be a good idea (like going to a sega after the sun goes down).
Let me know if you want to tour around with me!

Hi PrincessCaz - We will be in Trou aux Biches from 4 March and were most interested to read your info re Chikungunya. Our 4 year old is very attractive to mosquitoes (as am I). Have you had any recent contact with the doctors/hospital re the current situation? I'm sure you'll meet heaps of people travelling alone - My husband and I met years (and years!) ago whilst each travelling alone.

Hi Caroline,

I know it's such a fantastic thing travelling alone BUT you always need to be careful...

I would advise you to meet up with the above people or with other fellow tourists from UK (I'm sure there will be plenty of them around the area of Trou aux Biches - Grand Baie) to make your stay more interesting, more enjoyable and a lot more safer.

Mauritius IS a safe place but since you are a young girl travelling alone, It's not gonna be a surprise that you will meet blokes interested in a night out and offering drinks e.t.c. Just try not to be tempted and know your limits. Well that's it really!

I can't think of anything else as it seems like Rachel has already covered the best locations.

Too bad I'm in MU mid Dec to Start Jan (uni sucks) or I would have gladly accepted to take you around visiting places and having tea with my parents (They are not boring when we have guests). Try enjoying your time and make the best out of your placement.


Best regards
