Up,Up and away!!
It is said that Mauritius is the blueprint of heaven.....and when I had the experience of parasailing here, i could easily understand why.
Truth be said, i did have my doubts about the whole parasailing thing initially.I mean , being suspended in mid air some 60-100 feet above the water(yes , not even the ground) is a wee bit scary at first.There is nothing between you and an unpleasant rendezvous with the creatures of the deep sea , except a suspiciously thin rope.
As I gained height, slowly but surely my misgivings vanished into thin air(literally).
Being in the air for a good 10 minutes , I had enough time to marvel over the beauty of this place.It is difficult not to be overawed in the presence of such splendor.It was a feast for my senses....the smell of the clean air, the sound of the waves and the sight of the beaches, mountains, seas...everything put together in just the right proportion to make it the most memeorable experience of my life.
(and yes...it IS me in the pic!!!!)
