Pratiwi seeing what it's like to be pampered. Strange as it might seem, in readiness for a trip to the beach!
Gusde busy taking official 'pre-wedding' shots this afternoon. Nice work if you can get it
Back at the Sheraton Senggigi & time for dinner with a well deserved beer... after a very much appreciated shower.
Lunch @ Long Reef Golf Club. Not bad grub, but avoid if in a hurry. As you can see though, no reason to rush today
Ooops... and we only came in for a quick beer My schnitzel was very nice. Pratiwi not so impressed with steak
Chilli harvest! Once in a while we throw kitchen scraps into a planter on the balcony... here's one of the results
All I want for Christmas....
Lunch at Sun Sun... nom, nom, nom
Last Indo meal for a while. Well in a restaurant anyhow. You're looking at my source of home cooked Indo goodness
B-b-b-b-back in B-b-b-b-Blighty. B-b-b-b-bloody c-c-c-c-cold!
Pratiwi posing in the snow in Dad's garden. Does this mean we're acclimatised now?
Typical tourist shots: Pratiwi at Windsor castle. Didn't have time to go in... or was I too tight to pay?
Lunch at Carluccio's, St Christopher's Place. Nom, nom, nom
Tourist snaps from Piccadilly Circus.
Tourist shots: London Eye, Palace of Westminster & Abbey, Admiralty Arch, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace. Phew!
Asian tourists let loose inside Le Shuttle On our way to France after couple weeks in the UK.
Arrived in a sunny Alpe d'Huez to see the sun falling on the slopes. Should provide some excellent spring skiing
Huge choice of all you can eat desert for 6€. Dangerous if the main wasn't so enormous neither of us had room for it!
Pratiwi enjoying a little treat from the patisserie that seems to have become a breakfast staple already!
Dinner of duck & lamb in a very nice cost restaurant. Yuuuuum
Spot the difference today? Someone's on a rest day and someone else deserves a beer after his energetic morning
Almost didn't go to Vaujany, but beautiful run & what a view coming back! Plus snaps from earlier inc. our picnic
Hmmmmmmmmm... Cookies Pratiwi is so happy with her home made baking. Yeah, I won't complain either
Today's cycling shot: Pratiwi overlooking the river just outside Mialet. She quite liked it here
Rainy day in the Gite.
Pratiwi is the pink dot on the left here. Not being extra brave - just that's where the path was. Absolutely amazing!
Integrating at the local 'Flower Festival'. Not many flowers, but they had crêpes & other goodies so who cares?
The girls at dinner in Vaison-la-Romaine. A little celebration as it's been a while
Lunch in Malaucène. Entrée and main... don't think desert was on the table long enough for a picture
Literally 2 minutes after walking into the promo area Pratiwi is weighed down with freebies. Time to find a free bag!
Walking around some more... on the finishing straight and having a look at one of the merchandise stalls.
Barriers a bit high? I say, "We need a pile of bricks" Look around to find half a kerb stone in the bushes. Job done!
Time to go home. Oh go on then... just one more free snack. This time prosciutto wrapped bread sticks. Yuuuum!
Just hanging in the sun (while it lasts) & having a good time watching the goings on. Now... where are those riders!?
Rolling green hills around Lac de Serre-Ponçon & Pratiwi pointing out the location of her dream home
Almost home and still enjoying the trip & views. I think this is by the Serre la Vignasse but don't hold me to that!
Light lunch on the gîte terrace. Bit cloudy on the mountains behind but the sun is shining on us at the moment!
Pratiwi & Vanilla the (short eared) rabbit. Cute... when she's not feeling frisky (the rabbit that is!)
More duck as dinner for me. Foie gras (as we are so close to Thiviers) & veal for Pratiwi. Plus huge deserts. Yum!
Very nice lunch at Auberge du Parc, Hautefort. Perch wrapped in some crispy pastry stuff and other goodies. Yum!
Evening picnic by le Plan d'Eau de Mialet (Mialet dam). Took a random road in search of a quiet spot and voilà!
When in France... in summer... it just had to be done. Messing about in a field of sunflowers of course!
Wait a second... this isn't France! Passing through Geneva on the way to the Alps.
Lunch in Jardin des Tuileries. Best part (as seems to be the case with most places in Paris) was the large desert!
Another Paris café moment. More duck, more Leffe but this time mixed with a burger. Yum!
Pratiwi & the sunflowers... take two!
Messing about at Mont St-Michel. Hmmm... we like these goodies. Handy since they were dishing a lot out at the TdF
Pratiwi was so happy to find an Indonesian restaurant here in Vaals. Great food! The Dutch colonial connection helps.
Dinner in Schotten. What else but beer & schnitzel? Nice place but so quite. Think we have whole hotel to ourselves!
Pratiwi looking out from our room. Rather quaint place in Schotten which was very quite & perhaps a bit eccentric?
