OUTFIT: when the sun comes out to play.

Four Seasons Resort Mauritius - Bikinis & Passports

I’ll be honest with you guys, for me personally, sunshine is a big must when on vacation. I know that you can’t control the weather, but I can’t deny the fact that rain always gets me down when we fly 10+ hours to escape the Winter in Vienna and end up sitting in downpours. Mike and I seem to have a magical attraction when it comes to rain fall. We experienced the rainiest and coldest January in Mexico in the past 20 years, we had rain on 5 of 7 days for our first trip to the Maldives and we just returned from Mauritius, where we got stuck in a stage 2 cyclone and were kindly asked not to leave the house any more and to stock up on water supplies…

Moët & Chandon Rosé Impérial Valentine's Day 2017 - Bikinis & Passports

While I love patterned options for a more laid-back holiday vibe, a simple pair in white is the safest bet, if you ask me. White is the ultimate summer color and works well with all most materials and patterns. I don’t even remember how often I have worn these pants over the last few years….

TRAVEL: Heritage The Villas, Mauritius

Lobby at Heritage Le Telfair | Bikinis & Passports

When we booked our vacation to escape freezing Austria for some vitamin D in Mauritius, the last thing that was on our mind was a cyclone and daily down pours. There are a lot of things you can change, but the weather is definitely not one of them. We’ve been on the island for a week now and rain has been on the daily agenda. It has been a bit of a bummer because we had so many cool day trips and things planned, most of which were cancelled due to the dangerous weather conditions….
