Two shots of some towery thing in Paris taken just 13 minutes apart. Amazing!?! #TheMagicOfFilters wink

18:50

Teenage visitor suggests we go see some big towery thing. Oh come on then... if we must! grin wink

17:13

The view from a budget parisian hotel. At least it's... erm... characterful? wink

15:33

No idea what she's drinking, but I'll certainly be needing a bit more than this thimble of beer that just arrived! wink

14:11

Even without festive decorations this place looks quite pretty I guess. Just don't but what you don't need, OK?

13:55

Galeries Lafayette Gourmet: beautiful food at silly prices. Couldn't choose between the meats so left empty handed wink

13:41

Messing about at the Opera... I have no idea why! wink

11:54

Random Parisian shop windows. Sorry... too many to explain!... Although, erm, mostly self explanatory TBH tongue

11:43

Parisian street scenes. Aka. a load of random pictures from our long weekend that don't fit with anything else wink

Paw-sing for a quick paw-trait. Love the bear-et but need a shave - in summer this bear-d is un-bear-able! grin grin grin

19:50

When in Paris? Hipster bars... pffft! Oh well, if we have to wink Cheers! grin

17:16

Tourist stuff in Paris? Visit... erm... a plant shop? Seems there's stuff here we can't get at home? #AllGreenToMe wink

16:43

Down by the Seine. Plenty of trendy looking bars. Must be where cool kids hang after dark. Let's move swiftly on! wink

14:50

Arrive in Paris. Go directly to chinatown. Find restaurant in rather dodgy concourse below high-rise block. Enjoy! smile

11:40

Local airport: front door to gate in 30 mins. Not that we fly much, but it's a bit handy. Not a bad view either smile

12:43

Perfect day for a ride up Hautacam. Slow pace both up & down so plenty of time to enjoy the sunshine & views grin

21:31

Evening snack (erm... supper?). Can't beat leftover pizza, especially leftover homemade pizza! grin

11:26

Typical day at the Aspin? Kindof wink Beautiful roll with les Roses des Pyrenees. Bien joue tout le monde! smile

14:33

Huge kettle of vultures passing by yesterday. Amazing spectacle but photos don't do them justice. #NeedABiggerLens

21:09

Just finished mowing the lawn. Enjoying another great sunset & wondering when neighbours are going to do the same? wink

20:23

Oh look, the sun has come out after that storm. Do you think we should go outside? wink Another amazing evening here!

Pyrenees MTB: [email protected]% average. Outstanding view & brutal when out of shape! Time to smell flowers on the descent wink

22:21

Cruising hills just North of home. Mostly firetrail. Bit of sniggle. But hey, it's dirt & the views are magnificent!

00:09

Great to be back on the MTB! Almost 4 years since I last touched those bikes & they ride like new! wink Incredible! grin

10:30

16:14

Beautiful day! Should be skiing, but leg not great & all sad Lucky views on our short local walk never disappoint smile

23:13

Oh dear @Google: Web-based 'find my phone' just asked me to confirm a login, using my phone, which I was trying to find. See the problem? tongue

22:44

Finally ordered an Arduino to experiment with. So pleasing to see you code these things in a language from the 80s! #ChildhoodMemories grin

23:16

Why pay thousands for 1st class cabin on a plane? Park a camping car top of a hill in 100km/h winds. Authentic bad turbulence experience! wink

12:44

10:59

Walkiiiiiiies! Lovely little stroll with friends. As usual, passing plenty of curious cattle. Mooooo!

Not a bad sunset this evening smile Apologies for the dodgy smartphone pic - doesn't do it justice.

14:54

French country roads wink Wasn't the worst of it & although the Swift managed, could do with a tad more clearance wink

12:15

Normal programming will resume shortly smile But after 3 months off even trundle to next village with Pratiwi not easy!
