Even if our current temperatures are a little chilly (22 this PM), the atmosphere here of this f...amous world cup is a lot warmer. Especially if, like me, you have read this article about the most good looking supporters who set our stadiums alight! I love it!!

However, my feminine colleagues refreshed my mind, forbidding me to talk about the subject, suggesting the nonetheless sexy and warmer theme of “the Indian Ocean Islands”.

Madagascar, Mauritius, Mozambique, Seychelles, Maldives, Zanzibar... XO Africa extend its branding by presenting XO Islands.

Some Ambush marketing would you say?

That's right! If it is shorts & bikinis we have to talk about, I'll suggest that you look towards the Indian Ocean to find your own hot spot. White sandy beaches, warm and crystal clear sea water, luxury and calm , all flooded with Mojito cocktails, that is what I'm talking about here.  

Our XO Islands branch now exist in perfect harmony with her big sister, offering adventure & exclusivity, culture & luxury, leisure & discovery, safari & bikini...

So, Vuvuzela or Pina Colada?

Life style:
But from where comes your delightful taste... for life? The secret undoubtedly lies in your incredible experience, which must somehow have contributed to your unique, wonderful flavour. Where lobster born. Lobster dies. Imbued with a high spirit for adventure, you will spend the next 14 months travelling the cold oceans of the world, going places and seeing things.

Poseidon is not the kindest: as soon as you are born, your mother loses sight of you. We must admit that being smaller than 1mm in length, there was no way for her to keep an eye on you! But when you return from your amazing journey, to the very place of your birth, you're already a big boy: up to 20mm, with a wealth of life experience packed into your little bones.

Some said, you're just lazy! They probably don't know you well... But it is however true, that after all that excitement, it's no wonder that you spend the next seven to ten years relaxing in the cold waters of the West Coast of South Africa, enjoying the rest and growing to your full... edible size of 75mm.

Last word of advice: Stay away from the American sauce...
