Fishing where time stands still

Fishing where Time stands still By Glynn Burridge As a brand, Seychelles resonates powerfully as a unique collection of islands blessed with surreal, natural beauty, a near-perfect climate and a tiny population (88,000) enjoying the quintessential island lifestyle in almost perfect harmony.

Philos Edmond…A Seychelles icon

Philos Edmond…A Seychelles icon
