Disneyland Adventure – Part 2

Disney really is one of the most magical places on earth. I say this and I’ve only ever been to the European one! It touched that place of whimsy and magic that really makes me want to believe that there are fairies and Lost Boys.

There is so much to see, and so much attention to detail in almost every corner. In all honesty though, I can see where the European Disneyland gets the reputation for looking a bit tired and run down. Would you like to know more?

NEWSFLASH – I’m a big kid at heart!

Himself is just one of the best things that has ever happened to me. This year for my birthday he asked me what I’d like, and then he made one of my dreams come true!

As someone from the arse end of the world, an entire amusement park consisting of princesses and some of my favourite films seem like nothing more than a dream land. Would you like to know more?

Luxembourg – Part 2

We walked the streets of Luxembourg looking for interesting things to see and do. There were some wonderful statues which had been … well, I don’t think yarn-bombed is the correct terminology, but certainly “rope-bombed”.

I think it was M that had heard of a carnival that was in town this weekend, and whilst Himself and I had been ambling around getting lost while we looked for our hotel, we were sure we’d driven past it too. Of course this was the direction we headed in next. Would you like to know more?

Luxembourg – Part 1

As we looked over our maps and tried to decide where to go one weekend, I mentioned that I wanted to go to Geneva and catch up with a friend. But we didn’t really have the time in one weekend to drive that far and make it a worthwhile trip.

With a stroke of inspiration I messaged her, and asked if her and her husband were busy on the weekend, and if they’d be willing to meet us half way! To make a long story short (too late), they did! So we’ve been to Luxembourg! Would you like to know more?

Brussels, Belgium – Part 3

Inside half of that massive building I showed you at the end of my previous post is the Royal Museum of the Armed Forces and of Military History, Brussels – Belgium.

Like so much of Western Europe, Belgium has a long and colourful history of battles it has fought. The Museum is set up with a timeline in the opening hall. Would you like to know more?
