At the bottom of this volcano were heaps and heaps of geysers. The water was bubbling hot. So much so that you can even cook eggs in it. Consequently here's a photo of our egg baskets and our eggs cooking in the volcanic water. Lots of people were putting their feet into the hot pools but it really was so hot. Apparently the mineral content of the water is quite good/therapeutic.
We recently travelled 4 hours to a place called Lembang with another Indonesian family and wonderful friends of ours. We arranged to do these fantastic outdoor fun activities whilst in the area. We visited a volcano at the top and then walked down the mountainside, through the jungle, to the bottom of the volcano. As you can see, Felix was a bit upset - lack of sleep mainly.
Here's a couple of picks of the different types of phone users in this house. Felix is such a gadget boy, as soon as he can get his hands on a gadget/phone, he runs as fast as he can and tries to hide away with it. Gus on the other hand, was talking to family in Australia whilst riding on his Ripstick through the house. It was so funny to watch.
We were invited to lunch with a Jordanian family, they are such a wonderful family and we all get all along so well. Declan teaches their son. However Amal put on this huge feast of traditional food and it was absolutely delicious. She said that her mother-in-law taught her for 1 year how to make this food to perfection and perfect it was. So scrummy.
Whilst we were living in Thailand, we met Stine and we soon became strong friends. We have kept in touch all this time and remained good friends. Out of the blue one day Stine emails me to say she is coming over, well we were thrilled to bits. We had a fantastic time and it was so wonderful to see over time our friendship is just the same. Pictured here is Trine (a friend of Stine's from Denmark), Stine and myself.
Over last Christmas we were in Bali for 3 weeks, pretty much lounging around. However, we did go out to the Elephant Park for a meet, greet and ride. We had lots of fun. However, we did find it extremely expensive compared to the same kind of thing we did in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Yes it has, between my blogs. I'm sorry everyone. Life just takes it turns and all of a sudden you realise it's been too long. So I'm going to try to do this more regularly. I'll just be updating you on a couple of recent things we've been doing.
Now living in Deloraine after 7 years being overseas in: Jakarta, Indonesia; Chiang Mai, Thailand. Also lived in Griffith NSW and Launceston TAS. I have 3 gorgeous children: Gus (12); Tilly (11); Felix (3).
