I'm telling you, guys - the breeze here in Finland is not the palm tree kind right now. I couldn't feel my face for a while after a walk with the dogs this morning. I'd much rather be in this spot! . . . . . #mauritius #travelmauritius #visitmauritius #palmtrees #whitesheets #bluesky #sun #warmbreeze #daydreams #visualsoflife #chillinunderapalmtree #traveldiary #takemeback #vagabond #feelthesun #africavibes #traveldreams #faraway #islandliving #albion

Today I'm wearing knitted socks, wrist warmers and a fleece jacket to stay warm. In my office, you guys! Winter in Finland can be pretty cruel. Lately I've wondered what it would be like to live in a place where I could wear shorts and flip-flops to work, year round. This would be a nice view from the office! . . . . . #mauritius #travelmauritius #darksky #stormclouds #goldenhour #terrace #patio #africavibes #yellowflowers #wanderlust #vagabond #exploremore #takemeanywhere #ineedthesun #travelplans #alwaysdreaming

Meet my grandma Martta. Today is her 97th birthday! I can't even begin to tell you what she has experienced, where she has traveled and how many people she has made happy over the years. In fact, I'm not even going to try. I think you can see it in her eyes ❤ . . . . #97years #grandma #grandmother #97 #birthdaygirl #myidol #amazinglife #overwhelmed #neverstopsmiling #portraits #love

At night, the Albion lighthouse sends out a double flash every 15 seconds, visible to a distance of 29 nautical miles. Or so I've been told - I never went to see it in the dark. Wouldn't it be nice if all of us had our own lighthouse, giving us a signal to change course when we're going in the wrong direction? 😊 By the way, I was hoping there would be a lighthouse emoji but I guess not! 😀 . . . . #albionlighthouse #mauritius #ilemaurice #visitmauritius #travelmauritius #stormclouds #darksky #lightinthedark #IndianOcean #neverstopexploring #Canon_Photos #vagabondlife #LF10K #visualsoflife #lifeofadventure #stayandwander #wanderfolk #welivetoexplore #travelphotography #amazingplaces

Today I stepped out of my comfort zone. I guided my first ever group of photography beginners, which is crazy. I'm not a teacher! Am I even allowed to do this? I'm just a self-taught photography enthusiast (who constantly gets hired by strangers who seem to want ME to take their photos)! Why would they pay me for doing this? What if they find out I can't really photograph? What if _I_ find out I can't really photograph? Things went great and I did know my stuff. It would be strange if I didn't, after all these years! I just wonder why it is that the lack of confidence always hits me when I'm doing something I haven't done before. And it hits me even harder if everyone else seems to think I'm the right person for the job. This image is from Port Louis, and it's one of the rare shots of mine I consider street photography. You see, that's another area that scares the s**t out of me but I still really, really want to get into it. I pretended not to see these people when I took the photo - even though they are exactly what makes this shot interesting. But I was too scared to look them in the eye and smile, to say "I hope you don't mind my camera" or "thank you so much for breathing life into my photo". I really need to stop being afraid of embarrassing myself ☺ . . #streetphotography #selfconfidence #indiepreneurlife #Mauritius #PortLouis #umbrellas #imnotfake #exploremore #LF10K #wanderlust #visualsoflife #imgoodenough #citylife #lifeofadventure

The best things always happen when you do things spontaneously, especially when traveling. This was one of those spontaneous moments when we were about to go to bed but decided to walk to the beach instead, to see if the moon was casting its light over the Indian Ocean. It sure was. . . . . #Mauritius #ileMauritius #albion #albionbeach #IndianOcean #lightpainting #moonlight #clouds #nightphotography #neverstopexploring #visualsofearth #wildernessculture #vagabonds #wanderlust #travelingsoul #reflection #lightinthedark #midnight #longexposure

Every time I see this photo, it screams "Africa!" to me. It would be such ignorance to say Mauritius is an African country, even though technically, it is. But it is such a unique mixture of cultures and languages I would rather say Mauritius is a Mauritian country. I loved the diversity - and there probably isn't another place in the world where the Hindus, Muslims and Christians truly live as equals with respect for each other's beliefs and traditions. It took a while to get used to the local ways but once I did, they are what I miss from the island the most. . . . . #Mauritius #ileMaurice #visitMauritius #travelMauritius #adventure #neverstopexploring #vagabond #wanderfolk #discover #travelfar #cultures #africa #africavibes #amazingplaces #palmtrees #gate #window

It's been 4 weeks since I returned from Mauritius. It always takes me a few weeks after such an amazing trip before I can go through the photos without feeling that overwhelming sadness of not being there anymore. All of you bitten by the travel bug - you know what I mean, don't you? The only medicine is to start planning for the next trip! Until then, I'll probably fill my IG with photos of this paradise on Earth. A tip for all of you planning on visiting Mauritius: go quad biking in La Vallée des Coleurs Nature Park! The staff members are amazing, friendly and funny, and the quad biking is so much fun - although very dirty, so bring some extra clothes! Our guide took us to this gorgeous waterfall during our ride. . #lavalleedescoleurs #Mauritius #ilemaurice #chamouny #waterfall #longexposure #welivetoexplore #wanderlust #awesomeearth #discoverearth #visualsofearth #adventure #travelmauritius #visitmauritius #paradiseonearth #quadbiking #naturepark #canon_photos

I kind of did a little bit of work while I was on vacation. Just a tiny, happy, little bit. Our friends got married right before we left Finland so this is where I took their wedding portraits. 😊 . . . . . . . . . #albionbeach #albionmauritius #mauritiuswedding #mauritiusweddingportraits #beachweddingportraits #sunsetportraits #sunsetwedding #ilemaurice #goldenhourweddingportraits #haveotoldyouilovemyjob #indianocean #sunsetovertheindianocean #nosnowanywhere #beachsunset #whitedress #flipflops
