Yesterday while randomly going through the maps of the countries visiting my blog, I came across this new map on the list. What caught my attention was that
it has a very interesting colourful flag. Some visitor from Seychelles had
somehow landed on my blog. I was intrigued to know abt Seychelles and googled it up. I would take this opportunity to write about this country.
Just as I typed Seychelles on google images and hit enter I came across the
most magnificent sandy beaches and turquoise seas. Seychelles is an island
country spanning 115 islands in the Indian Ocean. I found out that it has many
national parks protecting whales, sharks and cramp fishes and is also a home to
giant tortoises and sea turtles.
Apart from being a tourist destination, this place has also been a lookout for
authors like Ian Fleming(the author of The James BOnd) to indulge in writing.
Whats more interesting is it was once a pirates hideout(now that is interesting
to me because I have been influenced by Captain Jack Sparrow- Johnny Depp big time)
and we can visit Anse Forbans that literally means pirates cove..aye aye!
Reading about Seychelles makes me want to take a walk on the beaches, watch the
waves hit the shore, the clear blue sky and sun reflecting off the waters in
brilliant colours. I would love to visit this place someday.
