3 Quotes in 3 Days: Day 1

I was nominated by the lovely Tehzeeb over at The Tezzy Files to participate in this really fun challenge. As my post title suggests, I need to post 3 quotes on the blog in 3 days. 

Here’s my first quote:


This quote comes from the 1978 children’s book, “I Can Read with My Eyes Shut!” and is as powerful today as it was 37 years ago. The book, and this quote in particular emphasizes the importance of reading, while showing how fun it can be too. Reading expands and enriches minds, and the more we read, the more knowledge we acquire.

I’ve always loved reading, and it gives me such joy when Zee asks for books. Now I understand why my dad loved talking about how his 5 year old would run straight to the book aisle when we went shopping. I hope my little person’s love of reading continues growing and never ends. 

Now for the rules:

1.  Post 3 of your favorite quotes, for 3 recurrent days. The quotes can be of any other people or it may come straight from your own heart.

2.  Nominate 3 bloggers with each post to challenge them.

3.  Don’t forget to give a shout out to the person who nominated you.

I nominate:

1.  Leana from Hipstyler, Pretty & Ginger

2.  Verushka from Spice Goddess 

3.  Namreen from Life and Times of the Fireflies


Travel | Mauritius: Gorgeous Water, Amazing Food


While in Mauritius we booked a full day trip (dolphins encounter + lunch on l’ile aux Bénitiers) with Dolswim. It was just us, with another family of three, so there was lots of space in the speedboat. Our two guides made sure we were having the best time, by keeping the snacks, drinks, and jokes coming.

Shawn went in first for a swim with the dolphins, and he had the most amazing experience! Four bottlenose dolphins swam so close! I’m not a swimmer, but the guide assured me that I didn’t have to miss out on the opportunity. He held my hand, and was patient even when I freaked out after realising I was in the middle of the ocean! 😀

We also stopped at Crystal Rock, which is an absolute wonder to see in reality.  We got into the water again there – great for non-swimmers and little ones, as the water’s shallow and gorgeous! Zee loved it.

Next it was off to the wild island for the yummiest lunch, prepared and served by the Dolswim guys. After, we had time to relax there, before heading back.

Should we return to Mauritius, we’ll definitely do this again… Perhaps just minus the panic attack in the ocean!
