As a Pasella presenter and former Miss SA, Melinda Bam’s passport is probably choc-a-bloc with stamps!

And now her husband, former Mr South Africa Adriaan Bergh, has surprised her with a trip to the jewel of the Indian Ocean, Mauritius - with its sun, sea and pearly beaches. Shortly before their departure the pair revealed that they were going to celebrate their birthdays.

Melinda turned 27 on 13 May and Adriaan celebrated his 29th birthday on 22 May.

The couple have travelled together before, about twice to America and for their honeymoon in 2014 to the Maldives and Thailand. And last year the beautiful couple celebrated their first anniversary at a castle in the Dutch town of Kronberg in Taunus. “Many couples start their relationship and after the honeymoon they immediately fall into the routine,” Melinda told YOU last year. “We wanted to first spend time together and get to see the world. It’s important that couples do fun things together and not wait till they get old.”

The lovebirds are clearly having fun in the sun. The photos which they shared conjure of romantic dreams of white pearly beaches and waving palm trees. And ooh-la-la with that toned and tanned body Melinda is the picture of sexy. She waxed lyrical about her love for Adriaan on Instagram. ‘You have the most amazing ability to make me fall in love with you over and over again’ was the caption of a photo of the pair surrounded by palm trees.

Adrian also posted on social media that the couple were chilling on the beach while dreaming about the future and listening to the acoustic sounds of American singer Jack Johnson.
