I use a sink to wash my underpants! This Travelblog is by "a" and "j" Mom and Dad thought it would be a good idea if we wrote this particular travelblog entry. Mom seems to think you want to hear our side of the story. ::rolls eyes:: We’re so happy to be writing this one and sparing you the cheesy “Tour de France” blog you were going to get. ::Just Joking, Mom and Dad!::
It all began when we left Switzerland to journey to France. Our drive was fascinating beyond all comprehension (If you didn’t know, we were kidding). Honestly it was a rainy, depressing and long ride to France. ::sighs:: Thankfully, a had her 26 Queen C.D.s to keep her entertained for six hours. We sat and watched the rain patter on the windows for hours. At one point we could barely see the road ahead of us. ::Scary:: Before we knew it, things had cleared up and the scene around us turned to beautiful fields of wheat and grapevines. During the ride we had a weird conversation where "a", with her humorous nature, secretly decided to type the conversation. Of course ,
"a" is brilliant, so she
made them think she was doing school work but in reality she was typing every word.
The following is word for word what a typed of the conversation in the car…beginning with us chatting about the actor Russell Crowe getting arrested.
j -You think he was drunk or high…or?
Mom - I just don’t think he would do something that stupid without being under the influence…
j- I just can’t imagine Russell Crowe pulling some stupid karate move and beating up on some guy.
::As we pull up to a toll booth::
j- You have to say bonjour mademoiselle.
j- Say “shut your mouth” this time.
::Talking about Dad’s 2 years of French in school::
Mom- Out of his very few phrases the best remembered one is “shut your mouth.”
j- Ok, So what’s the stupidest song of the year?
a- I’ll be honest with you…um…Did “yeah” come out this year?
j- I like that song…It’s funny.
j-“Shut up” is the stupidest song…and then that “Why don’t you DO something.” that’s equally hated. -::SINGS SHUT UP::
j- I hate that song.
j- So “Yeah” is the most hated song?
Allana took this cool picture
is something happening with my stomach
Dad- What’s happening with you stomach?
::Mom sees a field of sunflowers::
Mom- SUNFLOWERS!! Look at how beautiful…
Mom- Do you think that means they have good sunflower seeds?
::mom sees a military truck::
Mom- Look at those guys in the back of that truck!
Mom- Did they have guns?
Dad- Oh…No they are just sitting there.
::j spots road sign but not speed limit::
j- 72? Is that the speed limit!
Dad- THIS IS THE AUTOBANH!
Mom- Well there are places where there are speed limits.
Allana- “Yeah right.”
Mom- PMS INDUSTRY!
a- Did it really say that?
Mom- Yeah! There was a big sign that said that. It was in French though….so…it was like…Indosteeetry.
j- Hey Allana. How do you say Hotdog in Japanese?-
j- Yeah that’s right.
Mom - Because you know…Hot dog is an English word…
Mom- What did you say about your stomach?
For all those Moms out there…it turned out j’s stomach was okay but it took all of us a while to get back to normal after our Middle East travel.
After our ride, we came to
Euro Disney. We stayed at a hotel called the Movenpick dream castle. Mom and Dad insisted that we saw all of Paris before going to Disney. So we spent the first day on a whirlwind tour of the city of lights. The city was large and we had to walk all over it. j had a blister on her foot, and was in horrible pain. ::cringes:: First we headed to the Eiffel tower. It was huge and had an advertisement for the Paris bid for the Olympics on it. (London won... Sorry, France) ::Le Boo Le Hoo:: We went to the beautiful Notre Dame. It was amazing. Then we walked for what seemed 1000 miles to the Louvre. We ate at a café on the street. It was one of those fancy French things with the toasty breads and the interesting cheeses.
Disney was a lot more fun. We were surprised at how few people were there, for the summer. It was nice that we didn’t have to wait very long in lines for the rides. “It’s a small world” was twice as disturbing, in French though. Mom seems to love that horrible brain washing heap of naivety.
From another view
j and a really dislike it more than having teeth pulled. We rode Space Mountain and it was better than the one in Orlando because it has loops in it. Also, It launches you up the tracks from 0 to 60 in about 2 seconds! WHOA. Harsh yo. We have to keep up this cool lingo so it’s apparent that we wrote this one. We rode Indian Jones this roller coaster made to be like a mine car. j and a both lost their brains in the process. It was shaky and most uncomfortable. a’s favorite ride was the Phantom Manor, which was way cooler than the boring one back home. It was much more scary. When we went to Disney village we saw Charlie and the Chocolate factory. It was an amazing movie that a really enjoyed. She loves Tim Burton and Johnny Depp movies (Such as Edward Scissorhands). j thought it was really good as well. There was a mechanical bull in the middle of the village where kids rode and made total fools of themselves. It’s perfect, you pay to be publicly humiliated. Yeah, that’s a good business for dad to get into. Mechanical bull riding.
While we were in Paris we stumbled upon some guys on rollerblades performing awesome stunts over street cones and barriers. Also they did some tricks with police tape stretched over two barriers as you will see from the pictures. It was just like a free stunt show. Over all France was a exciting place to visit. We were pleasantly surprised at how fun it was there. Ooh la la. Fin.
