Hmmmm, I am not sure if I should tell you the price... you might get mad :rolleyes:

9,50€
Reunion is a department of Paris so technically it is within the EU When I posted there the ordering dept had a hernia trying to sort out the postcode (France).

Postage can be a pain here... We are a French Department regarding the law, but not regarding the customs..
When I order online, the price depends on whether I put France or Reunion (obviously more expensive for Reunion) but if I put France it arrives anyway (and sometimes faster), go figure!

Last time I sent myself a package from mainland France to here, it was more than a month ago, and I still didn't get it. Postal customs want me to pay fees to deliver my own stuff...

BUT I'm sure the slingshots will be fine :D

Only € 24.50 cheaper then, maybe Norwegian prices aren't that high after all ...
Way cheaper than taking it yourself. Cycling would take a lot of expensive calories. A car a lot of fuel. As for walking that's a long time off work
The maps alone would cost more.

Yes, but taking it personally to Reunion was something I thought about... but my wife wouldn't let me without her ;)

"Adam You need a companion. If you let me have your leg I will give you a special person. '
'Leg? I don't want to hop about!'
'Well let me have a rib. '
After Adam woke up from a deep sleep he felt some tenderness in his chest but Who is this delightful creature before me?
"It is woman"

Three months later Adam ponders.
"Hopping wouldn't have been so bad,"

No status update from DHL tracking for more than two weeks... I am a little bit worried. @Gniaffron... What are typical delivery times to Reunion? Is this still normal?

Anywhere between 7 to 45 days.... For the moment I wouldn't worry too much!

For all I know it could be arriving tomorrow! Fingers crossed...

The package came back today... any idea what could be wrong?
It's just to add to the suspense.






Google:

FD means "Fausse Direction", looking quickly means that the sorting office made a mistake and it went in the wrong direction. So it will have gone wrong somewhere and got put back into the normal post system and re delivered.

A wild guess, but maybe don´t write France ( Reunion Island)... that way it will go to France first ... just write Reunion Island...:) I guess that was the reason why the postage was so cheap ... they thought "France?... thats not that far... 10 Euros standard France postage":D

Probably that was the problem... Next try will be on Monday... this time I'll just write Reunion, nothing else... and if that doesn't work, I'll have to take it personally to Reunion ;-)
