The words above are in Creole dialect spoken in Seychelles meaning " Hello Seychelles! I love you!" After God created the world, a handful of diamonds were left. He looked to east Africa and thought: "Here I can create something wonderful." He threw those diamonds in the ocean and thus Seychelles were born. This is the myth of the birth of these islands, the natives still living in memory. How many times have I dreamed to get to these islands! How many times, reading about this paradise, I never imagined the great sound, the smell of exotic plants and the warm smiles of the locals! It is a beautiful destination, remote, exclusive and not cheap, but I was given and am grateful to see it!
