    Disneyland Paris

    July 6, 2017 in France

    A surprise for the kids today. Off to Disneyland Paris. Alanah very excited again and Liam trying not to show how impressed he is that we have been able to keep this secret from him. What did I think of Disneyland? Well as far as theme/fun parks go, no body does it better than Disney. I'm not into big rides but have to say the rides here were pretty good. Star Wars space tour was really good and entertaining. The queue was done as a spaceport, keeping you engaged before the ride. Captain Nemo's submarine was fun and the Indiana Jones ride and wild west mine ride were a blast. Best ever haunted house I have been in. Done very well. Only annoying thing was the merchandising. Every shop in and outside the park you went into had pretty much the same products regardless of the theme of the shop. It became quite tiresome. We met Mike and he was very engaging and given it was the peak season, queues weren't that long. All in all a fun day.Read more

    Disneyland

    March 30 in France

    Tag 2 und 3 waren wir im Disneyland und im Movie Park . Trotz ein wenig Regen und viel Anstehen machen die liebevollen Details und die Abschluss Shows alles wett. Der Movie Park war süß aber reicht 1 mal. Danach ging es ins Paxton Resort, wo sie uns leider ohne Essen ins Bett schickten :D

    25 Jahre Disneyland Paris

    April 12, 2017 in France

    Juhuuu, wir feiern Geburtstag! Zusammen mit Mickey Mouse & Co.

    Der Shuttlebus vom Hotel ins Disneyland ist mega überfüllt, dass die so noch fahren dürfen? Naja, es sind ja nur wenige Minuten 😅
    Dort angekommen macht Elly schon mal grosse Augen.... Der Eingang alleine ist schon wunderschön. Am heutigen Tag wird eine Grosse Geburtstagsparty gefeiert mit mehreren Paraden und Shows. Also es hat sehr sehr sehr viele Leute angezogen. Der Park war rappelvoll. Bei jeder Attraktion musste man anstehen, ja sogar zum Mittagsnack, ich stand eine gefühlte Stunde an für einen stink normalen Hot Dog. Egal, meine Mädels besetzen draussen einen Platz für die Parade.

    Die Preise sind echt krass, okay Disney braucht viel Geld für die tollen Filme. Also wir haben uns nur von Snacks beim Mittag und Abendessen ernährt und dafür zu dritt einfach mal 47Eur liegen lassen 🤔 naja es hat geschmeckt.

    Man brauchte heute viel Geduld, die längste Wartezeit hatten wir bei der Achterbahn Big Thunder Mountain. Angegeben waren 100min. Am Schluss waren es 2 Stunden. Aber Elly hat sich gut durchgearbeitet und hatte dann auf der Fahrt auch Spass. Aber ein zweites Mal sind wir dann doch ned gefahren 😂

    Ja, nach einem gefühlten Marathon fallen wir nun ins Bett bevor es morgen wieder nach Hause geht.

    Shoppen und Magischer Circus

    April 11, 2017 in France

    Der heutige Tag war eigentlich nicht ganz so aufregend. Wir verließen morgens nach dem Frühstück die Pariser Innenstadt. Erstaunlich wenig Verkehr im Gegensatz zum Sonntag war in der Stadt.

    Da wir in unserem nächsten Hotel erst um 15 Uhr ins Zimmer können, fuhren wir noch ein riesiges Shoppingcenter an. Für Elly gab es neue Schuhe.

    Die Fressmeile war super, allerdings waren die leicht überfordert, aber wir haben ja Urlaub 😎

    Noch bisschen Proviant eingekauft und dann auf zum Hotel. Magic Circus ist der Name, Elly konnte noch nichts anfangen damit. Auch wenn das Hotel aussieht wie ein riesiger Zirkus, sie kam noch nicht drauf was da jetzt eigentlich geschieht. Erst als der nette Herrn an der Rezeption uns die Eintrittskarten für das Disneyland und die grosse Geburtstagsparty übergab machte es bei ihr langsam klick 😂 Ich glaub über die Freude können wir morgen besser schreiben. Heute war der Swimmingpool noch die grosse Freude.

    Das Abendessen war recht lecker und nun versuchen wir die Nachtruhe zu finden.

    Bis morgen!

    Never a dull day in Paris?

    September 18, 2017 in France

    With the loss of Brian's drivers licence, we would no longer be able to hire a car to explore Carcassonne and the surrounding district, which caused some disruption to our plans. Plan B is for us to travel by train from Toulouse, where we were to have collected our rental car, to Carcassonne. We also needed to organise train travel later from Carcassonne to St Exupéry airport in Lyon so we could catch our flight home. Brian spent over two frustrating hours on the iPad trying to make online bookings, but nothing was working. In the end, he gave up.

    We then went for a bit of a wander round our immediate area then strolled across the beautiful Pont Alexandre III and on towards the Place de la République. Unfortunately, it was still filled with a lot of temporary structures from the previous day's concert, so it wasn't looking its best. We knew that we'd be seeing again (and again) in the next four days before we leave Paris, and by then the place will be looking attractive again.

    We were very much looking forward to catching up with our old friends Ian and Eileen who were coming over to Paris from Harrogate to join us, so we decided to head to Gare du Nord and meet them there. It was a dual-purpose visit, as Brian decided that the only way that he could complete his purchase of rail tickets was to get them in person at a station. That part of the mission was more or less easily achieved, though it turned out that our friends' arrival time was a couple of hours than what we'd understood it to be, so we decided to wait for them back at our hotel instead.

    Not much excitement so far, but that was about to change. Just one Metro stop before our own, we suddenly heard a lot of shouting and saw people sprinting along the platform. Just outside the window of our stationary train, one man leapt onto another one, who was running as fast as he could, and tackled him to the ground in true rugby style. Several others then helped to sit on the fugitive. Our train was stopped at the platform for a good 20-25 minutes while we got a grandstand view of it all. It took a few minutes for the gendarmes to arrive, but when they did, they were swarming all over the place. We assumed that the fugitive was probably a bag-snatcher, and a couple of good Samaritans had made sure that he didn't get away with it. The police were less than gentle with him, which Brian was pleased to see with his stolen wallet fresh in his mind. Unfortunately one of the pursuers appeared to have broken his arm in the scuffle, but at least justice was done and we saw some excitement.

    Late afternoon, Ian and Eileen arrived at our hotel, where they'll be staying for three nights. We first met them at Fibremakers in Melbourne, where we and they were on secondment from New Zealand and the UK respectively. We had young families at the time, and found that we had a lot in common. Since then, we've visited one another on a few occasions, the last time being about nine years ago. It was really great to meet up again like this. We had a thoroughly enjoyable meal at a nearby restaurant while we excitedly caught up with one another's news. A day which started slowly finished really well.

    Disneyland Paris

    November 2, 2017 in France

    We did it! We boarded the plane with two children, 5 and 1, to fly across the Atlantic Ocean to....yup...you got it!...Disneyland Paris!! Having been to Disneyland and Disneyworld, we are trying a new one...Disney Paris for their 25th Anniversary year. The flight went well, with a free and unexpected seat upgrade, amazing staff, and our new favourite airline...KLM! The flight attendant made Aston a special bed on the floor, gave the girls activity packages, and provided awesome snacks!!...even ice cream! Our girls are super travellers....Morgan entertains herself with books, cartoons. and colouring....Aston was happy flirting and peeking at the other passengers. About 20 hours of travelling later, we finally arrived to our hotel...The Explorers Hotel~~~ and the adventures begin!! This is the BEST hotel we have ever stayed at with the kids...a pirate ship play area inside, a pirate ship playground outside, an indoor climbing play structure, and an amazing swimming pool (also pirate theme)....it's built for kids! We love it. Oh, I almost forgot the fire breathing dragon near the lobby and the cinema too! There is also an arcade and a kids fitness centre! The rooms are themed....ours was a ship theme with bunkbeds and even treasure map carpet! We are very excited for our stay!Read more
