Paris – day two

So , I’ve been busy and only realised this morning that I hadn’t written or posted day 2 yet so here goes

So on the second day we were extremely rushed as we were going to Disney and after Disney straight to the train station to go home so it was a bit manic. Because we were so rushed that I didn’t have time for breakfast till later so we headed to the station and let me tell you I’ve never loved French underground more than I did then three words DOUBLE DEKER TRAIN (seriously have no clue why this excited me so much but it really did) I personally think England need to look into this I don’t even care if they were pointless, they are cool end of .

So on the train we were sat next to a German/English family who were here on holiday and they had a baby and a seven year old with an incredible voice now normally if I was on a train and a kid started singing  the whole time I’d want to strangle them but not this girl she was really talented and she was my entertainment for the majority of the train ride. Once we were in Disney we went to get a sandwich from a cafe and they were selling this ham and cheese roll that I really wanted so we brought it up to them man who asked me to give it to him so it could be toasted, I refused I really didn’t want it toasted and the man looked at me as if I’d just insulted him and he told me that it would be terrible so I still refused because at this point even if I wanted to toasted I wouldn’t give in to this irritating man who was constantly telling me I was wrong so I got out my money and said “sorry, I think I know what I want” and walked out with my sandwich .

I’m not personally a rides person so Disney for me is more the atmosphere but there is one ride I have to go on if I’m in Disney which is it’s a small world which is the creepiest ride ever it’s basically a water ride where dolls in cultural clothing singing the most creepy and repetitive song ever “it’s a small world after!” Repeated in about ten languages and I really apologise if you’ve been on the ride and your reading this and that song is now etched in your brain .P1010319

The rest of the day we went to the other park which was the studios and I loved the stuff they had there especially the tram ride which showed you how special effects are made and you got to feel an earth quake will explosions happened and gallons of water were thrown on top of you it was really awesome P1010329

After that we went to the train station and went home I personally love Paris and hope to go back there at some point . I hope you enjoyed this post my next post might be a bit geeky not sure if I’m going to do it though x

Like and comment see you next time x

Paris – Day one

P1010332So I wanted to start this blog by apologising for not posing as frequently as iI would like as I’m slowly noticing this blog has become a bit of a travel blog and I really wanted to do my next post on my trip to Paris so I will  be splitting this post up into two so you will get day two later this week xP1010255

So last weekend i got the chance to go to Paris with my dad which was really nice as the last time i got to go was when I was five and it’s kind of hard to appreciate things when all you care about is Dora the explorer so  went by train to get to Paris which was cool as the seats where extremely comfy and i practically slept through the whole journey. once we were in paris we went straight to our hotel well I say straight . It wasn’t. me and my dad have no sense of direction so we were basically roaming the streets of paris which would have been nice if it wasn’t for the fact we had a large and noisy suitcase  (what ever noise your imagining currently times it by ten then double it  then you will have close to the noise the stupid suitcase was making ) the hotel itself was really nice and I did enjoy listening to the french receptionist laughing at my dads name which is Nigel but they kept pronouncing it N-ee-gellP1010289

after we left the hotel we went to look for our group as we were getting a tour of the Eiffel tower which I was looking forward to as the last time I was there I was so exited to see the Eiffel tower but as soon as we got there I was sleep in my buggy and when my family tried to wake me up I got angry and went back to sleep and missed the whole thing and still to this day my family won’t let it go. once we were in queue we were looking at a large sign on the wall saying you weren’t allowed to wear roller skates up thee and this confused me so much as seriously what idiot would think roller blading on the eiffel tower was a good idea ,but obviously it happens as they needed a sign for it.P1010262

here are the pictures I took –

P1010266

after we had finished we went over to go on a boat trip of paris which was really pretty but as usual there had to be so,one to spoil it and in this case it was a group of pensioners from Germany who I’m pretty sure thought they’re better than everyone else so the first Lady I met decided there was a seat that she wanted so she physically removed the child who was sitting in it and the parents said nothing as i think the were as scared of her as the little girls was the second one shoved me into the man next to me and sat down then looked smugly at me and said thank you.P1010287

we finished the day but eating at a burger restaurant ( Lets pretend it was traditional french cuisine) and the restaurant was called mammies which sounds like a Mrs browns boys themed resteraunt  (I wish) it was a really nice day

hope you enjoyed this post will post Day two soon x1141

On The Town

Recently I got the chance to go see a new theatre thing in London which is so cool it’s basically theatre but outside and because it was summer it was lovely and hot the place where it was held had a barbecue so you could sit on the grass before the show and eat burgers now when i heard about this I was a bit worried that the burgers where going to be those cheap burgers you get in tesco but no these burgers were incredible! I would even say they were the best burgers I have had in a long time and they were served on these fancy wood slabs.


after a while we went inside and I was taken back by how cool the set was because the show is about three sailors so the set looks like shipping containers stacked on each other.

P1010177

On the town is a musical about three sailors named Gabey,Ozzie and Chip who are in New York for 24 hours as they search for a girl named Ivy for gabey. the whole show was amazing. the show had singing and dancing and both were so good all the dancers where extremely talented (I can do the Macarena but that’s about it) they had one of the ex-strictly come dancing winners Danny Mac he played Gabey

In the second part of the show the set changes a bit to make it look like a club with neon blue lights.it made me really happy how at the beginning of the play it was bright and light out then when the show was set in the evening it was going dark it really added an atmosphere to the show

P1010182

I really recommend this show to anyone even if you’re not that big on musical because the whole atmosphere of it is incredible and its such a different experience that I couldn’t recommend it any higher

I hope you enjoyed this post see you soon x1141

Madrid

So as the half term comes to an end I wanted to write about what I got up to over the holiday. So I got the chance to go to Madrid for 3 days and it was so pretty I took loads of photos and I will put them in today’s blog. So for me the worst thing about going on holiday is the fact that we always have to get up at stupid o’clock and for a person like me who likes their sleep this is the WORST and I did warn my family not to irritate me for their sake as well as my own.

Once we got on the plane I realised that for some reason Madrid must have been a hen/stag party hot spot because they were everywhere. Behind us we’re a rowdy stag party that my Nan decided needed to be put in their places (which was both hilarious and extremely awkward)

One thing I loved on this trip was the endless amounts of tapas. Now on the first day we went to a small traditional tapas restaurant and the food was amazing (don’t ask me what I ate I physically don’t know I get people to order for me and just hope for the best) the waiter was really nice and his English was quite good (my Spanish is quite bad) the only problem was I nearly broke his foot . He was moving our table and I moved my chair thinking I was being helpful and ended up with my chair on his foot with all my weight pushing down on it he pretended it didn’t hurt (it did) I felt terrible I’d been in the country for a few hours and I’d already injured someone

P1010029

The apartment we were staying at was really nice all the furniture was modern looking (IKEA!!!!!) and the view was very pretty the one fault I had for the place was the fact everything kept breaking the shutters broke the telly broke my nan blew the light bulb in the middle of the night which meant the fuse box went weird so the air conditioner wouldn’t turn off (I was FREEZING) it was actually quite funny in the end

P1010017

on the second day we went to go see the palace that’s in Madrid which was so gorgeous and it reminded me of Buckingham palace except in 30 degree weather

P1010033

on our last day we went shopping and I found a mug that i had to share with you!

Coachella for your parents

So recently I got to go to a festival with some friends that was basically Coachella for your parents it was called Rock The Moor 80s Festival, now the was the third year we have attended and I wanted to write about it because it was a strange experience. so premise of this festival is 11 hours of famous people from the 80s playing their top hits and I was honestly surprised at how many I knew such as a group called Sister sledge now initially I assumed this was just woman but i later found out it was a group (shows how much I know) now I had no clue who they were but somehow I knew their music they were the people who wrote “we are family”  the music was causing me de ja vu of EVERY party my mum has forced me to go to.IMG_3032

the hardest part about being outside for 11 hours was he fact it rained a lot I honestly think we went through most weathers it was sunny and hot one minute next it was torrential rain and huge winds it got so bad that at one point I had to buy a poncho (which i ripped within an hour) it must have been quite the image us all cowering behind umbrellas IMG_3028

I think the best part about this festival was the old-fashioned carnival rides that were there to be honest we only went on two or three rides (we are slight wimps) but they were amazing and the best part was because they were so old-looking you were pretty sure you could die at any minute (always fun!). the games and ties they had were really cool like they had waltzers and the game were you attempt (and fail in our case) to knock of a coconut and loads of other stuff like a ghost train ect.

I think the funniest part of the day was the toilets now if you have ever been to a festival you know the toilets are ALWAYS terrible and they obviously didn’t want to break that tradition. when we got their they were nice enough but we weren’t that stupid we knew it wouldn’t be long but we came prepared and decided the best way to survive was to nick a roll of toilet paper right at the start that way we would defiantly be safe.IMG_3019

The stalls there were really odd like a stall that you could buy voodoo key rings (every Child’s dream) and you could buy dresses, over sized sun glasses wigs and other strange thing but we thought it would be nice to get matching bracelets. I was actually shocked at one of the stalls because it was selling shisha and there were just random people all sitting on pillows smoking shisha ,I was so confused!IMG_3031

over all it was a really good day and we enjoyed it a lot and I’m hoping t go again next year,
