Aloha and yokwe Jean-Jacques! It was such a pleasure reading about another little known and remote island. I'm very sorry that it has taken me so long to welcome you into the writer's group, and just to say hello from one islander to another. Although your island is quite a bit larger (!!) than mine. The pictures are beautiful, very reminicent of the volcanic islands in our part of the world. Unfortunately for me, my little island is part of a coral atoll, and therefore flat, flat, flat. Thanks for the look at the beauty that results from the volcanic explosions of our remote past.

Looking forward to more!
Shari

Hi Shari,
Marshall islands then, I guess this rings a bell for most US citizens but I can tell you that very few French people would have any idea where to find them on a map! You are close to places I would love to visit, the Bismarck archipelago and New-Guinea, hope I will make it some day!
I spent some time on coral islands off the coat of Belize, nice but rather flat as you say, the fantastic thing with Reunion is the diversity brought by the moutains.

Hello and good evening, Jean Jacques.
Another islander, from the Lofoten Islands in Norway. I have been reading yous articles and loved looking at your pictures from Reunion Island. I had never heard of this island until this summer;when suddenly 6 nice young people from Reunion visited me on a holyday travel in our country. They had found my little bed-and-breakfast place on the Internet. They were really cute and told me a little about the island, and getting home I had to take a look at the map to find out where they came from. So your article and pictures has been a pleasure. My island are not flat at all, here are mountains up to 900m, and plenty of hiking trails. And lots of tourists too.
Regards from Lofotjenta, which means The Lofoten girl.
