Mahe Island, Seychelles

All fellow travelers arrived safely after seemingly convoluted journeys into the tropical Seychelles, the humidity like a gentle kiss after the dry conditions endured on aircraft. We were met at the airport and transferred to our accommodation at the Eden Bleu Hotel, located on reclaimed land offshore of the main island.
