Last time when I did a post on my 1st Phoren trip, I did have someone mail me and say that they expected a detail about the places to visit in Dubai. Sorry to disappoint you but the posts on my phoren trips will only include my experience.
Me on phone with a travel agent (TA)
Me: Hello, ya hi can you please connect me to someone who is incharge of honeymoon packages
TA: Sure mam
TA: Sorry mam, it is lunch time no, so the person is not on seat
Me: Oh ok, what time should I call back
TA: I can help you mam
Me: Alright then, actually I am looking for some package deals to Mauritius
TA: When do you want to travel mam
Me: Somewhere in the month of November
TA: Sure mam, can I have some details please. How many people mam?
A little taken aback since I already said it was a honeymoon package
Me: Errr it's an enquiry for honeymoon
TA: Yes mam, but how many people
Me: Well, currently it will only be my husband and me (unless otherwise we develop some fantasies)
TA: (not at all realizing my sarcasm)Ok mam. Any children?
TA: Any children mam?
Me: (as politely as possible) Let me call you back please.
Yes that is how the conversation went off for my second phoren trip, and my entire family still enjoys this conversation. Not to mention these guys are a very leading Holiday planners in India

So Mauritius it was, our honeymoon destination. At the boarding gate in Mumbai itself I had realised that Mauritius must be a favourite destination for honeymooners. I could see atleast 10 to 15 couples all mehendi clad and inseparables . Usually the husband would be running to the coffee counter fetching coffee and choclates for his new bride and she would be sitting legs crossed with a freshly rebounded hair, holding a savy hand bag, with her newly acquired smart phone, talking to moms and dads. Me and Ritchie looked like the most boring couple admist them. No, no I also had a super brand hand bag, but no smartphone, anyone in our house would have killed us if we called them at 3 in the morning after the tiring marriage days and hubby fetching coffee (sigh!!). Sitting there we kept cracking jokes at them (i.e after we had resolved a major argument that was going on between us). I know losers
Mauritius felt wonderful the minute we landed, the duty free was loaded with stuff . On reaching our hotel, among all the couples waiting we were upgraded to a suite (ahem, ahem) ya after that I was walking like a dog who had just been hit by a stick on it's arse...straight & uptight (women I tell you). We changed and straight away headed for our lunch. Came back to our room and slept like dogs till very late in the evening , after effects of a big fat Indian wedding . So when we woke up past 7.30pm I was having a little bit of fever with deadly pain in my ears. I had pierced my ears and it got septic (damn!!). I was taken to a city hospital, given anesthesia (yes, yes on the first day of my honeymoon) and then my ears were cleaned (admist my yells and shouts) I guess it was a duplicate anesthesia! After that they bandaged both the ears and from the uptight dog I looked like an elephant who had large white ears

Our last day in Mauritius was a sad one. We did not feel like leaving. But as they say all good things come to an end, our trip to this magical place also did, but the honeymoon still continues .
