On the island of Praslin in the Seychelles, the Vallee de Mai Nature Reserve still has a natural palm forest preserved in its original state. The famous coco de mer, from a palm-tree once believed to grow under the sea, is the largest seed in the plant kingdom. In the 19th century the British General Gordon declared that the Vallée de Mai was the Garden of Eden and that coca de mer was the tree of knowledge. The suggestive two-lobed form gave rise to many legends – including a belief that the nuts possessed aphrodisiac powers. 

Shaken, not stirred: Khao Tapu (a.k.a James Bond Island) is a solitary pillar in the sea off Phuket, Thailand. It is the most remarkable attraction of Phang-nga, and has become a popular tourist attraction since it was featured in the 1974 James Bond movie, ‘The Man with the Golden Gun.’

Raiatea, meaning "faraway heaven" and "sky with soft light", was first named Havai'i after the homeland of the ancient Polynesians and is the most sacred island in the South Pacific. This was the center of religion and culture over 1000 years ago and still lends enchantment to ancient legends told to this day. The green-carpeted mountains include the celebrated Mt. Temehani, a sort of Polynesian Mt. Olympus.

"(Letter to the Azulia crew) Now that we are home again and have time to reflect on our week with you on Azulia, I just wanted to thank you both for your wonderful help in the total enjoyment of our week. We loved everything about the boat and the care you gave us. The meals were memorable, delicious and varied. It is wonderful to have such fresh and imaginative salads everyday when at sea! We loved the quiet bays, the snorkelling and swimming. It did us both a lot of good and we are so pleased to have had such a great experience on your lovely boat. Thank you for organising the lovely lobster supper and champagnešŸ„‚ to welcome my husband into his 78th year! All in all it was a superb week!"
