French term or phrase: bapteme en tandem au dessus des falaises au sud de bali
friend vacationing in bali
angele
English translation:duo maiden flight over the cliffs in the south of Bali
Explanation:
As your friend is on holiday, I am assuming that he is having fun doing things he hasn't done before.

Tandem = double, duo, (two people taking part)
Bapteme = maiden flight, (for example)

In the case of sports such as flying, bungy jumping or whatever, the first time you do it is referred to as a "bapteme" (bapteme de l'air in the case of a maiden flight). Some sports, parachute jumping, free falling etc, you can do with your instructor the first time, (en tandem). Given the context, this may well be what your friend is getting up to on holiday!
