I am back. The trip was great. It was pretty cold there. It rained or snowed the whole time we were there. We saw most of the sites. The Eifell tower was closed, the towers of Notre Dame were closed, you get the picture. We did go to DLParis and guess what many rides were closed.
They don't clear the sidewalks in Paris. And shovelling was not existant at Disney.
Great pictures! I am surprised Disney was open. I thought it would be closed with those kinds of temps and with snow.
Your trip sounds like mine, short. We has tomstaynat the airport and take the train into Paris. Which would have been fine except once in Paris the stations are not handicap accessible! Try exiting a train station with no elevators and a wheelchair!
So we walked from Notre Dame to the Eiffel Tower. It was getting dark by the time we got to the Eiffel Tower that we just took some pictures and found the nearest train and went back.
We didn't get to go into the 'Louvre or anything. If we didn't have tomstaynat the airport and I didn't have a wheelchair to push around, we probably could have done more.
Thom and I were commenting on the lack of HP accessiblity. There is a huge step just to get on and off the train, forget about getting to the train! Next time you go, there is a bus from the airport to Disney, so could maybe get that. The Louvre does have an elevator so if you can get there, you could push around. It is so crowded though. I am not sure how all the people do it with wheelchairs and carriages, esp. in the snow because they don't really shovel the sidewalks! We trudged through slush. Disney probably should have closed, but they have lots of people staying there so have a few rides open to keep them busy. It was only open 10-6. Also they don't usually get that much snow! It was supposed to open 10-8 but they decided to close early, I was relieved. I wanted to see the Dreams show but wasn't sure how I would make it til 8!
I guess because we have all those ADA laws, they probably don't. The airport station had an elevator and I think one station in Paris did. The next day we got off at the next stop right in from of Notre Dame. No elevator. It was horrible trying to get out of there!
We flew Air France/Delta. It was fine. We had no choice in the matter, the tour company booked everything. You know I never changed my name, well the whole trip was in my name, except the hotel was in Thom's name! Very old fashioned! I agree about the metro. It was tough watching people with their carriages. I am not sure how you get around with a wheelchair. Then add the snow and you are really stuck!
I agree about the swaps, I am done. I can't commit to host SBPS. I really need to get my head above water.
That's like Disneyland. You can walk through it and it has stairs going up with the little windows with scenes from Sleeping Beauty in them.
I put a bug in DH's ear. I said so,etching like gee it would probably be expensive to go to Disney Paris. Then he said, you'd be able to say you've been. Maybe he'll want to take the kids there! LOLOLOLOLOL
Last month he suggested the DD1 and I go to Germany next summer. I was surprised he suggested just the two of us take a trip and he stays home with the other two.
Hey you only had to pay shipping for three carts with points you already had. How's that enabling?
I haven't bought carts in a while. Have you grid the Cricut Craft Room software? It's free. You can but digital versions of the carts for less and I think they sell individual images. Not sure if that is for every image or just certain images can be bought as singles.
I haven't used it in a while. I just updated the gypsy after not updating it for over a year and it automatically updated my Expression. If it doesn't work then I won't hook the gypsy up to the original Cricut so I will at least have that one to use MTC with.
