Kuoni Insider

I was in a small boat gliding over the crystal clear light blue sea from Praslin to Cousine island on my honeymoon. All of a sudden, in spite of wearing clothes (not a swim suit!), I found myself diving into the transparent sea, reaching out for the ripping sand-bed at the bottom.

I have never seen water so temping, so clear, so blue and sand so perfect. I wanted the moment to last forever. And as I swan to the shore line all I could hear was the sounds of tropical birdsong and lapping gentle waves. This makes life worth living.
