Mauritius is an island nation in the Indian Ocean about 2,000 kilometres (1,200 mi) off the southeast coast of the African continent. Mauritius was first discovered by the Arabs in 975 AD, then by the Portuguese between 1507 and 1513. Since then there have been periods of succession and colonization between the French, Dutch and British. The island gained independence in 1968 and became a republic in 1992.

Located at the Southwestern tip of the island you will find a fascinating illusion. When viewed from above, a runoff of sand and silt deposits creates the impression of an ‘underwater waterfall’. Satellite views are equally dramatic, as an underwater vortex seemingly appears off the coast of this tropical paradise.

A sharp, cultured milk yoghurt called viili, or porridge with cloudberry or lingonberry jam are also popular options, as are traditional Finnish pastries like korvapuusti cinnamon rolls.



Australian breakfast has come a long way since Vegemite on toast. Coffee culture is deeply engrained in most cities, and a flat white is a popular start to the day, followed by fusion dishes that often combine native and non-native ingredients: lemon myrtle blueberry muffins, macadamia nut granola, buckwheat pancakes or avocado with lime and coriander.



The institution of the full English is alive and well, though it is often a weekend affair. A classic fry-up is based on bacon, eggs and toast – but any self-respecting Brit would find room on the plate to accommodate a couple of sausages, mushrooms, tomatoes and baked beans as well as lashings of brown sauce. Toast and cereals are the most popular day-to-day breakfast choice, and regional delicacies range from kippers to kidneys and kedgeree.
