When I came across a news article about a part of a Boeing 737 plane that was found washed ashore on a remote island in Indian Ocean, what intrigued me the most, apart from the details of the plane, was the location – Reunion Island!
Initially, trying to get information about Reunion Island was very difficult. Everyone that we spoke to or asked for information had never even heard about the island.
We booked our flights to Reunion with the limited information that we gleaned from the web and prepared ourselves to explore the unknown.
Bourbon Island – as it was first known – is definitely an adventurer’s paradise. The sun is hot, the water is warm, the food is good and it’s as though the infectious Malayo music of the Creole people (locals of the island) seeps into your soul.
