A perfect holiday, in my opinion, would incorporate mixtures of weathers, lovely mountains to catch the nice breeze, a verity of cultured food and flavours to choose from. To add to this perfect trip I would like to do lots of outdoor activities. There are a few countries that tick all these boxes, for example, the Himalayas, Reunion Island, South Africa, Jamacia, Lebanon and I chose Reunion Island.
Three activities I will choose while I’m there
Located in the heart of the Indian Ocean, Reunion Island is a country full of exquisite landscapes and fun activities to fill up a perfect holiday.
I plan to do a lot of outdoor activities, Adventure Sports and learn about the history of Reunion Island I will do some paragliding in Saint-leu Region above the turquoise lagoons and unique vegetation.
After that, I will visit Musée Stella Matutina which translate to Stella Matutina Museum this is a historical site located in Piton Saint-Leu, StellaMatutina Museum, for 20 years, it was a place where the public could come to learn about the industrial techniques used in sugar can production, as well as glean information about the history of Reunion Island and its people. In 2011, the Reunion region embarked on a project to completely renovate the museum and its site, as part of a new scientific and cultural programme.
The last activity I plan to do is a hike, Due to the mixed terrain of this fascinating island, hiking is incredibly popular and the number one activity. The calderas and volcanoes are the main attraction which holds magnificent waterfalls, lush forests, hills and valleys ripe for a journey. The walks range from easy to difficult which allows somethings for every type of hiker.
Staying connected - Applications
I have downloaded the following apps to help me stay connected to Reunion Island and its people. The first app I used was Google translate, Google translate is a free multilingual and neural machine translation service developed by Google. This app is useful in this situation to help us translate what we need to say because In reunion the common language is french and Reunionese Creole(the native language of 90% of the population.
The second app I used was Facebook, and Facebook is a social networking website where users can post comments, share photographs and post links to news or other interesting content on the web. You can even order food on Facebook if that’s what you want to do I used this app to stay connected to the people and my people so I can see how they use social media.
The third app I used was Google Maps is a web-based service that provides detail information about geographical regions and sites around the world. In addition to traditional road maps, Google maps offer satellite views of many places. I used This app to help find the destination of the activity I will be doing and to find the nearest food accommodations to try some amazing Reunion Island food.
Much of Reunion Island population lives near or below the poverty line. By some estimates, nearly 50 per cent of the country’s population lives below the poverty line. Minority face particular disadvantages. Young people are also more likely to face poverty due to the increasing number of 15-25 years old competing for scarce employment.
In Reunion Island, The outdoor air pollution is a mix of chemicals, particulate matter, biological materials that react with each other to form tiny hazardous particles. This pollution is a risk to cities and rural areas worldwide affected by air pollution.
I will attempt to decrease air pollution when travelling by choosing an eco-friendly way of transportation. For example, riding a bicycle or carpooling with others to minimise the amount of exhaust when separated. This would benefit the location as I promote for clean fresh air rather than toxicity from gas and other exhausts. This would also benefit me as I wouldn’t be at risk of major health conditions such as lung cancer or a chronic respiratory illness.
