Hi Everyone!

I'm very pleased to be on the forum, I found a lot of intresting information already on living on the island. I don't know if I might have introduced myself before, but if not, here we go!

My name is Katrien, married to Frederik and we have four wonderful babies of 10, 12, 14 and 16 years old. We just bought our plane tickets to Mauritius from August to November, and are looking for accomodation right now. We seek to escape the rush in Belgium just for a while, prospect some business opportunities (Training & Consultancy in Change Management, Leadership, Lean and Six Sigma Process Improvement and Negotiation Skills), maybe write a book(let), unwind, redirect our lives again. We will be homeschooling our children and hopefully learn a lot about Mauritius, it's nature and it's culture.

We have been living in Indonesia (1yr), Guatemala (1/2yr), India (1/2 yr), Ireland (1/2yr), Trinidad WI (1/2yr), Singapore (1yr) and Italy (1,5yr) before, but for the last fifteen years we somehow fell asleep in Belgium.

I'm a Master in Social and Cultural Anthropology who has been working in education ever since I can remember and my husband is a Civil Mining Engineer who dedicates himself independently now to training in process improvement and negotiation. We speak Dutch, English, French and some Italian, Spanish and Indonesian.  All life changing inside information on surviving in Mauritius will be welcome!

An maybe we'll meet soon...

Hi, I lived in South Africa for 20 years, UK London for 12 years then moved to Mauritius last month. I work as an IT consultant in Quatre Bornes. I would like to make some expat friends in Mauritius as we would have a lot in common.

Julien, thank you for inviting us.
Yes, I'm a newbie.  Not just to expat Mauritius, but also to "social media".  Like many, I'm considering emigrating to Mauritius/île Maurice, as a retired single person.  I'm doing my research, trying to find helpful contacts, just like other people here.   
I am sure that I am not the only person who needs a little "hand holding".  I don't suppose my questions/concerns/needs are much different to others...?
Of course one can find immigration lawyers etc., find most of the info we need on the 'net... And I'm sure anyone who is serious about relocating doesn't mind investing a few rupees for good, kind, fair and thoughtful advice.  Is there something like that exists in Mauritius?
Best regards, cordialement

Alan (undependent).
