Seychelles | Tomas Cochrane

Today we’re whisking you off to a set of secluded islands in the Indian Ocean. This special place is so beautiful and remote, that it is often touted as the original Garden of Eden.

Joining me to chat all things Seychelles, is our partner in the region Tomas Cochrane.

Whether you’re looking for a far flung, relaxing, tropical paradise, or a more active adventure complete with interesting wildlife, hiking, and island hopping – the Seychelles really has something for almost everyone.
