Au revoir a l'Ile Reunion

The spell-check just wanted to correct 'revoir' to 'reboot' and I suppose that says it all: last morning, last dawn wander along the pearly-pink lagoon, last cruise around the breakfast buffet with all its exotic fruits and buttery pastries. Ahead lie three flights totalling 16 hours.

I've enjoyed this taste of France. It's been great to hear French spoken all around me, to see the style and insouciance, to appreciate the joie de vivre. They do seem to live with enthusiasm: for their partners, their children, their dogs, their food, for nature, for exercise as well as sitting doing nothing.

Sixteen hours of sitting doing nothing holds no joie for me.
