Week 3 of ‘Le Tour’ and we are nearing the end of this yearly armchair adventure! This week has been an uphill battle, both on the real tour and behind the scenes [i.e. the dull, yet demanding worklife of Julie].
So before we get ahead of ourselves and prepare for the final assault on Paris, I think we should all take some time to relax and enjoy this week’s tour highlight ... ‘The French Alps’
LESSON 1: Learning to breath
Take a slow deep breath!
And inhale the .. crisp .. clean .. pollution free air!
Now if your week has had you feeling …
a little on edge
And you want to just take off ..
and fly away
Then take a little trip with me…
OVER the peaks
and glaciers of Mont Blanc
the weaving valleys of the Rhone Alps
until we reach
and … the ‘Venice’ of the French Alps
with tree lined canals
AND colourful boats
Are you starting to unwind?
Maybe we should find somewhere
and enjoy the scenery?
LESSON 2: Learning to relax
The Lake House
Somewhere to relax
forget the world
Sleep in Late!
Laze Around pondering..
It’s all too relaxing!
I guess we should see how those
crazy boys and their spoked jalopies
Standings at Stage 18
So what do you think?
Looks like a win for Contador, yes?
No matter the outcome
I think Lance’s performance has been ‘not too shabby’
See you next time…
in … PARIS !
