19. The Seychelles

 
Honestly, now - who doesn't want to visit the Seychelles?  How could an archipelago of islands in the Indian Ocean sound unappealing?
There's a feeling of anxiety that taints my daydreams of the Seychelles, however - a panic that they might be swallowed by the ocean before I ever save up enough money to get there.  Some of the islands have become submerged already, which brings home to me the fact that as powerful we humans think we are, we are pretty helpless in the face of nature.
 
On a more positive note, the Seychelles are the stuff that holiday programmes are made of - blue seas, white beaches, your every need catered for in style...
 
Who's coming with me?
Who's already been?
The stuff that dreams are made of!

Bags are packed, just tell me when we're going.

Aren't those photos just the most amazing thing in the world. I don't know how people who live there manage to carry on with normal living - I'd just be sat on the beach and not move!

I want to go! And I don't even know where they are...but if there's a beach I want to swim in the waves :)

Gorgeous pictures! I'm really not a beach person, but I'd make an exception for that place!
