France 2007 Day 6: Abriès to Aiguilles

Posted on 29 August 2007 in Travel and Holidays (No comments yet - be the first!)

After a days rest, it was back to the hills again, enjoying the slightly spooky empty hamlet, a big climb, a lovely lake and a long descent.

France 2007 Day 5: L’Echalp to Abriès

Posted on 25 August 2007 in Travel and Holidays (No comments yet - be the first!)

With dodgy knees to relax, it was time for a nice, simple, but very beautiful walk along the river. Plus, of course, a quick look at the fantastic Mount Viso.

France 2007 Day 4: St-Véran to Molines

With the rain left behind, it was up a hill, then down again to our next stop. Fantastic views, beautiful scenery and… err… painful legs…

What are you looking at?

I hadn’t actually loaded up Google Analytics for a while, so I thought I’d pop in and have a look at how everything on Planet Bods is fairing. Not that I’m hugely fussed generally about hits - it’s just nice to watch them over time stay, well, pretty much the same.

GE Money: Ditching me before I ditch them

Posted on 15 August 2007 in Money (1 comment)

After all the hassle recently with GE Money, my gut reaction was to close my credit card with them straight away. In the end I decided to give their complaints department the benefit of the doubt and see what happened before taking a final decision. As it happens, they’ve decided to ditch me before I ditch them.

France 2007 Day 3: Ceillac to St-Véran

Posted on 12 August 2007 in Travel and Holidays (No comments yet - be the first!)

It’s day three, and time to leave the Hôtel La Cascade. The Col Fromage beckons, followed by the Col des Estronques. Oh and the pretty village of St-Véran.

New TV

Posted on 10 August 2007 in Shopping (No comments yet - be the first!)

The new TV has arrived which is good - watching episodes on Futurama on your laptop PC just isn’t the same if you ask me. It’s an IDTV - integrated with digital. I did contemplate going for a cheaper model without the digital element (actually in the clearence range) but due to delivery issues (i.e. they couldn’t tell me when it would be delivered), decided to get the digital one. Analogue TVs are getting harder and harder to find now - and it has to be said, rightly so.

No Beer and no TV make Bods something something…

What happened to the days when things lasted? I’m sure they existed. I remember owning a TV for about 12 years - and it got transported around the country a few times to boot… Sadly it doesn’t seem to happen very often any more. Just two months short of being five years old, and my TV has decided to give up the ghost.

Portrayl and Accuracy

Posted on 6 August 2007 in Internet (No comments yet - be the first!)

One of the things I try to do on this website when reviewing or commenting on anything, is to give an accurate reflection of an experience at the time I saw it. I don’t believe in being nasty, or badly reviewing anything unnecessarily. And yes, I’ve said a few bad things about certain places before now. Anyone who ever had the chore of reading my comments on Freeserve or GE Money will know that.

France 2007 Day 2: Walking Around Ceillac

It’s 22 July 2007 and time for the first walk of our walking holiday in the Queyras region of France. This days walk - a circular walk of the hills and lakes around Ceillac.

France 2007 Day 1: Travelling… Oh So Much Travelling…

Posted on 3 August 2007 in Travel and Holidays (No comments yet - be the first!)

On 21 July 2007, we headed on a multitude of trains towards the Queyras Alps in France. This is part one of that holiday.
