Out the front of Disneyland
Well the last couple of days have been very busy and magical, except the part we were fined because we did not realise we needed different train ticket. We spent the 2 days in the magical world of Disneyland Paris. The 1st day we spent in the main part, looking at everything and trying out all the rides. The first ride we went on we had to wait an hour. I felt like sheep. All we needed was a border collie nipping at our feet and jumping on our heads rounding us up. Luckily that was the most we had to wait for a ride the average time was about 12 hour. We went on all the rides we could fit in one day including; the temple of Doom, Pirates of the Caribbean, space mission 2 (which we went on several times) plus more. We stayed at a hotel near Disneyland which was very nice compared to what we have been staying in. IT HAD A BATH!! And the bed was very comfortable. The second day we had our skates on after a huge buffet breakfast and seen the second part of Disneyland - Disney Studio. Here we saw how
Sleeping beauty's Castle
Disney movies were made and learnt a little about the history of Disney cartoons but the best bit was the rides. The Aerosmith ride was great; we spent most of the ride upside down and loosing our guts. A close second was the crush ride, surfing the EAC dude. After eating until we were sick and buying lots of little goodies we decided to head home this time getting the appropriate train ticket.
Today we walked around and uncovered all the beautiful treasures of the Musee du Lourve. The first piece we saw was the good old Mona Lisa she was beautiful but I thought she would be much smaller than she was, of course there were a million people so I had to get physical and push my way into the crowd! Troy wanted to see Venus de Milo’s Aphrodite (chick with no arms as Troy so loving puts it). From there we just wandered and gazed at things that were so old it was hard to imagine. The Egyptian exhibition was excellent though Rhiannon was a little disappointed that she didn’t get to see a juicy mummy just the tombs. The actual Lourve was an amazing
building, the detail in the structure and the detail on the ceilings was awesome. The building was huge, it made you feel like an ant, especially in the Egyptian area the columns and the statues were enormous. From the Lourve we walked down to the Champs Elysees to check it out again. On our way we could see the Effiel Tower, we’ll check that out tomorrow on the bus tour.
Off to do a spot of washing (everything we packed!) And find something to eat for tea (I fear it may be pizza again!) I just want fruit but they have weird fruit here and the normal fruit looks awful.
Love you all bye for now
