Interview Patrick Baud

The beauty of La Reunion

Amazin Landscapes and people

1.      Which places or experiences stuck out most during the shoot on Reunion Island?

What not to mention? Hiking through the Cap la Houssaye savannah at sunrise, doing a balancing act over rock heaps, betwixt mountain and ocean, was a magic moment. The blow-hole spattering sea spray at sunset was another.
2.      What's your favourite memory from the shoot on Reunion Island?

The landscapes and friendly team atmosphere, obviously. Driving the vintage Peugeot 403 along the coast was a rare privilege!
3.      What was the most surprising thing you discovered about Reunion Island?

It was my first visit, so I had no idea what to expect. I discovered total multi-culti magic: a melting-pot of people, cultures, beliefs, which was a pleasant surprise.
4.      Why would you recommend Reunion Island to your friends?

Utter beauty. Gentle lifestyle. That little mysterious something. And how people from all horizons rub along happily together.
