Road trippers

With our friends visiting we decided to forgo our normal schedule and do a day trip to show them a bit of the island.
First lesson was how to ride a motorbike.

 Second stop: The local petrol station.
 And off we went. The road is pretty dodgy in places but we all made it in one piece to one of our favourite beaches.
 Where we did what we do best: lounging around in the sun.
Not too crowded eh?

A day at the Lontar Spa. ( I love my job)

After all that cleaning up getting our house ready for guests we headed to the SPA for some well deserved back rubbing. Jerome visited us earlier this year and left us with the luxurious goodbye present of 6 treatments at the Lontar Spa. Which believe me have been heaven sent for us both.
 I also have the extremely important job of being the Quality Controller of the Spa. ( I love this job and I love Sascha for letting me do this). So every once in a while I will come in and try a treatment that the girls don't do regularly, like say the "Divine Renewal". 
 "Take your clothes off and lay face down please"
Unfortunately I am really not good at this job as the last treatments I have had in the SPA have been so wonderful and the music so smoothing and the oils smells really good and the girls are really, really good at what they do so I have done the unthinkable: Fallen asleep. 
Which is in a way the best compliment I could give the girls.

 The shop in the SPA is still going great and there is some good buys to be made.
(Sorry I just had to :-)

Who wouldn't like to have a head, neck and shoulder massage in these surroundings?

We're having visitors this week you get to truly experience the "inside out living".
It is three of them so I made a bed on the outside of our little shed and on the inside. 

 This is normally where we work out as with the new roof we have a great shady area but we figured we'd loose our rope systems and yoga maths for the time being.
