Current Rock of Residence:

Mauritius

Island Girl Since:

Birth

Originally Hails From:

Mauritius

Cheriza is a born and bred island girl and has lived half her life on the island of Mauritius and the other half of her life on another rock, namely Australia. Well, Australia is actually a continent but since it is land surrounded by water, then by definition it could be considered as a rock, right?

Cheriza currently works in the hospitality industry, the other choice of career having failed miserably since tending to koalas and kangaroos are impossible on Mauritius. When she is not at work, you will find her tending to her two dogs (which most of the time behave like spoilt feral brats), hiking the rock’s numerous mountains, perfecting yoga poses (still can’t touch her feet by the way), bar hopping with her friends at sundown, or exploring the island’s numerous beaches because let’s face it, life is better in a bikini!

Cheriza is often consumed by wanderlust and loves to discover the rest of the world, even though sometimes the next travel destination has sometimes been other rocks such as Koh Phi Phi or Fiji Islands. It is always with great anticipation that Cheriza returns to Mauritius after two weeks of traveling at a time and there is no better feeling for her than to see the familiar blue lagoons, white sandy beaches, and green sugar cane fields whilst landing. That is, until Island Fever strikes again!

Call me Cruella de Vil

I want to talk to you guys about the one time I "kidnapped" a dog and how I think I'm paying for it in Karma. Taking a brief trip into yesteryear, there used to be a bar and restaurant right next to the condo I live in. Said restaurant would host loud parties which...

The Perfect Island Community

The Perfect Island Community

"If you look at an island for what it is, it's a piece of land, surrounded by water that appears to stand alone. It's true that there are no united states or neighbouring unions. It floats in the middle of the ocean, seemingly disconnected from the rest of the world....
