Fr Chris' annual holidays: 3rd September-3rd October 2019

GET AWAY 2019 🙂 

Oh boy, annual leave comes around again. Will Mauritius trump Zanzibar? When will I get back to Rome? I will ponder all things as I count the waves breaking over the white sands in front of my guest house in Mauritius ... All good for the spiritual life as I love praying the rosary wandering on the beach

I'm not here, but may be close-by!

I wish I was staying here but I'm not :(

Fr Chris Annual Holidays, 28th August-27th September 2018

Have you heard of Zanzibar? The Indian Ocean surrounds this breathtaking island which has become a site for adventurous tourists. It is a bit off in distance from the coast of Tanzania 

Annual Leave, Yah

Thanks be to God that Fr Vincent Conroy will be taking care our Moora parish again this year.

Last year's adventure was in Vanuatu. This year I may never return ….I’m off to Zanzibar. Please keep me in your prayers and I will register with Smart Traveller. In case I don't return check with them. 

I found this very assuring, "If you are wondering is Zanzibar safe, rest assured: the island is extremely safe for tourists. ... While the island itself is very safe, it is nevertheless prudent to exercise caution while sailing around Zanzibar as there can be pirates lurking in the waters." Great ...

 Soooo Last Year!

Fr Chris Annual Holidays, 1-29th September 2017

Mr Garry Brown alleges that Fr Chris has gone fishing. Perhaps this is so. He could have gone to Guam because accommodation is cheap. However, he may be somewhere close to the ocean. This above picture might be a good spot to start looking for him.

The pictures below are where I actually went …Vanuatu

Below are photos of Vanuatu. To come this September are photos of Zanzibar (God willing)

Great place for diving - well, on the other side of the island. All dives here seem to be deep, meaning I haven't been on one less than 16 metres.

Tide's out. Is a Tsunami coming?

Welcome to Zanzibar! This dining hall is reminiscent of many others that I have been in on my last trip to Africa. I love Africa and the poverty. Somehow, this brings out many wonderful human characteristics and a great sense of joy. Also, there is suffering, hardship and possibly despair. Please pray for this great nation.

This sign in front of the dining room says, "To the beach." Like it's the most unnecessary sign ever!

Can you see "Moora"?
