#OnTheRoad On Instagram: Reunion

#OnTheRoad On Instagram: Reunion Mar 25th, 2013 at 7:00AM: This week on Instagram, Gadling is off to the Indian Ocean island of Reunion. The Indian Ocean bridges Africa in the west and Southeast Asia and Australia in the east. Much less familiar to Americans than Europeans, the region's islands challenge the Caribbean for the attention of upscale Europeans, and can lay claim to some of the world's dreamiest properties. Some of its countries, like...

Overseas France: Or Where You Can Find France Outside Of France

Overseas France: Or Where You Can Find France Outside Of France Oct 5th, 2012 at 11:00AM: The days of colonial empires may be long over, though the United States, United Kingdom, France, Netherlands and Denmark continue each to administer a smattering of overseas territories. Among these, France has arguably the most interesting and wide-ranging set of territories. Overseas France includes tiny St. Pierre and Miquelon off the coast of Newfoundland (population around 6,000), the...

Round-the-world: Mauritius & a trip status report

Round-the-world: Mauritius & a trip status report Oct 8th, 2010 at 10:00AM: Originally, we'd scheduled five nights in Mauritius and four nights in Réunion. Mauritius would be devoted to the beach and the ramshackle capital of Port Louis, while our time on Réunion would prioritize hiking and the quaint villages of the interior. This, at any rate, was the plan. Réunion was the one pesky piece of the itinerary that stubbornly resisted advance...

How to take a round-the-world trip

How to take a round-the-world trip Sep 10th, 2010 at 10:00AM: An open-ended round-the-world trip can be led by whimsy and happenstance and benefit accordingly from extremely loose planning. A more structured, time-limited round-the-world trip necessitates figuring out transportation in advance. With five weeks to play with, we fell into the latter camp. I emailed AirTreks in the spring and dutifully submitted an itinerary through their global map...

A round-the-world trip: Where?

A round-the-world trip: Where? Sep 8th, 2010 at 10:30AM: Once I'd dispensed with my unrestricted fantasies of scurrying from seldom-visited corner to seldom-visited corner (see Monday's post) we got down to the essentials of figuring out where we wanted to go. The Micronesian islands of Palau and Yap were our first priorities. Both destinations had been on our radar for years. Palau with its faintly stinging marine lake jellyfish and the...

French Airline signs deal for 840 passenger A380 superjumbo

French Airline signs deal for 840 passenger A380 superjumbo Jan 16th, 2009 at 3:00PM: Airlines placing an order for new planes is normally not really newsworthy, but a memorandum of understanding signed yesterday between French airline Air Austral and Airbus for 2 A380's is something special. Air Austral will be the first airline to order the A380 with seating designed to its fullest capacity. That means a whopping 840 passengers spread out between the double decks of this...
