    Bus Stop

    November 9, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    Rather than taking the metro, it was more convenient for us to take a bus to our next stop, the Eiffel Tower. I didn't mind this at all. We've already been on the metro so this will give us an opportunity to experience another facet of every day life in Paris. I'm looking forward to riding on one of their buses.Read more

    Mail Call!

    November 9, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    These are some great looking postcards. I've been collecting postcards for years and have built up quite a collection. They are, possibly, the greatest souvenirs to get while traveling. They are inexpensive, come in so many varieties, and take up almost no room in a suitcase.Read more

    One Stop Shopping

    November 9, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    We've been passing quite a few of these street kiosks. I'm still surprised to see them on Champs-Élysées but, seeing the sort of things that they are selling, I'm guessing that they are popular with all the tourists that come around here.Read more

    Walking

    November 9, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    As we were strolling along Champs-Élysées, I noticed that some areas of the street were made from cobblestone set in these beautiful patterns. It looked great and made the area seem very special. Sadly, I don't think that many people even notice little details like this. If you pay attention to your surroundings, you can find so much beauty everywhere you look.Read more

    Keeping Watch

    November 9, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    We left the Disney Store without getting anything. I was hoping for some unique French things but everything was almost exactly the same as what we can get from the Disney Stores back home. We know the store will be fine with this stormtrooper in front guarding the store.Read more

    Stormy and Me

    November 9, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    Before we left the Disney Store, I wanted to get a shot of myself with one of the stormtroopers. It wasn't perfect, since we had the glass between us but it was better than no pictures at all.

    Spiderman

    November 9, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    We even saw Spiderman hanging on one of the walls here. Since Disney took ownership of Marvel, they've been doing a lot with all of the characters. It's great seeing all my favorite comic book heroes becoming more popular in mainstream entertainment and having lots of toys and other stuff about them being available. I wish all these things were around when I was a kid.Read more

    Vaiana

    November 9, 2017 in France ⋅ ⛅ 52 °F

    To us, this is Moana but in some countries in Europe she's known as Vaiana. The name Vaiana actually translates to "water cave".  Disney Spain confirmed that the name change was the result of Moana being a registered brand in Spain and other European countries. So, this character has the name "Vaiana" instead of "Moana" throughout Europe.Read more
