Yay, I'm glad you found boots that you're happy with! I love my half chaps, I never wear long boots except at shows.
I visited Mauritius several years ago, it was a beautiful place to visit, and I saw a lot of wildlife there, which I loved. I THINK I stayed near Port Louis, but i'd have to check that. I was definitely right on the coast. I think if I went back now I'd probably be looking for the equestrian aspect a bit more!
