Excerpt from my thriller: Kolony.

           Chapter 4             Handforth descended to the ocean floor with the silken embrace of its tepid waters coursing beneath the membrane of his dive-suit. Visibility was very good, excellent even; something he was coming to take for granted from the Indian Ocean.              As he began to orientate himself, a familiar tightness began to grip his […]

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. And all this because some 150 million years ago the planet’s crust fractured […]

Philos Edmond…A Seychelles icon

Philos Edmond…A Seychelles icon

Philos and the Russians   One of my stand-out memories of Philos was the time in April 1989, when Rosemary sent him down to D’arros with me and on a strict diet, far from the temptations of home. Things started off pretty well and we entered into a regime of healthy eating and sport; tennis […]

Running through Eden: Seychelles’ Eco-Friendly Marathon

Running through Eden: Seychelles’ Eco-Friendly Marathon

  Running through Eden   Sapphire seas, cobalt skies and a meandering road ahead, sandwiched between lush forests, largely untouched since the dawn of time and the lapping of the Indian Ocean against magnificent, silver sands.

Siren’s Song part 4 (final) Excerpt from ‘Voices’, collection of Seychelles’ short stories

  By the time I returned to D’arros, the pace of life had sped up considerably and it was decided we would need someone with basic medical knowledge on the island. I volunteered to go into training. Until then, the closest I had come to medical matters was swallowing panadol for a hangover, but a […]

Siren’s Song part 3

Siren’s Song part 3

There were a host of adjustments to be made and the first was to make friends with the mighty Indian Ocean, now only twenty meters from my doorstep. From one day to the next, that uninterrupted body of water, slipping away from the crystalline shallows into the secret depths beyond the reef, ruled my life […]
