Ballin in Disney
So to follow up on the previous blog... We had our diner cruise on the Seine last night for Kathryn's birthday and it was an amazing night. We had a superb three course meal and the view of some of Paris' sites was truly breath-taking. At the end of the cruise we docked by the Eiffel Tower and this time it actually was sparkling!!!!
After trying to hail a taxi for 20 minutes, because someone stole our first one, we made it back to the Hotel room and started packing since we were checking out this morning to start the second leg of our vacation in EuroDisney. When packing we realized that we have a lot of shizzanay, Kathryn's shoe collection has increased by 4 pairs and we aren't even half done!!!!!
Since there was more we wanted to do in downtown Paris, John set his alarm clock for 10:00am.... that didn't work. Kathryn woke up at 11:30, smacked John in the face with her ELBOW, and said "next time if you set the alarm correctly maybe I won't give you a black eye!!!!", no really she said "we have to check out in 15 minutes", believe it or not we finished packing, and made it down in time to catch the taxi to our Villa by Disney.
speaking of the taxi ride, man was that costly, but damn it was a nice car. So we got to the resort around 1:00 in the afternoon, good thing check in isn't until 4:00!!!! So we were forced to lie by the pool and suntan for 2 hours, then we were notified that our room was ready. It is a tough life we are living. When we got to our VILLA (I type in caps because it is HUGE), we walked into the front door and saw the first of three bathrooms. Our villa has, a full kitchen with a breakfast bar, a dining room and living room, washer and dryer, a walkout patio with some patio furniture and a beautfiul view of the secret garden. Upstars, we have 2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, 1 jacuzzi tub. The master bedroom has a king bed and the second bedroom has 2 singles that can be pushed together if John snores too loud.
The lobby in the reception area has free internet so you can expect frequent blog updates for the rest of the trip. We are going to have an early night, as tomorrow we are going to see Mickey and Minnie and all of their friends for our first of three days at EuroDisney.
We are going to be posting some pics on facebook for those of you that are priviliged enough to be our friends. For those that aren't, we will show you the pics when we get back next weekend.
Lots of love,
John and Kathryn
