It was my birthday on the 18th and as usual gaining another year to my life wasn’t something I wanted to admit was actually happening, so we went to Paris instead!
We did all the usual touristy things which included The Louvre. This has been in so many films I’ve watched included National treasure, so it was really weird to see it in real life, like it’s actually a real thing..
Sticking with the whole tourist vibe, we went to see the Eiffel tower too. We didn’t go up it cause Dans a wuss and doesn’t do heights, plus there was a massive fence around it which made the queues longer, and they took longer to go down too.. And I don’t really do queues unless i’m in a shop and i’m really wanting whatever I’m buying.. We then walked from here to the Point de l’archeveche, which is the love lock bridge without the locks because they took them all down. It was supposed to take us 45 minutes to walk here, it actually took us over an hour to find it because we got lost a lot and google maps on my phone just didn’t feel like working well, but I didn’t want to admit it as i was main map person.. Plus we kept stopping for crisps on route too! I like crisps and eating gluten free in Paris itself was an absolute nightmare. We ended up with McDonalds this day..
We went to Disney Land! It was so amazing, we didn’t really do many of the bigger rides cause as stated above, Dan’s a wuss, but to be fair we were both pretty ill this day too, so rides were possibly not the best idea anyway!
The Alice in Wonderland part of Disney land was obviously my favourite. I absolutely LOVE Alice and the whole story. The whole of my right arm is an Alice in wonderland sleeve and so are my ankle tattoos. The whole story itself amazes me. You can fall down a hole and then suddenly everything is different…
“Alice is engaged in a romance quest for her own identity and growth, for some understanding of logic, rules, the games people play, authority, time, and death.. When you approach the book with this idea in mind, it offers interesting and meaningful interpretations of the events and characters in the story.”
“I wonder if I’ve been changed in the night. Let me think. Was I the same when I got up this morning? I almost think I can remember feeling a little different. But if I’m not the same, the next question is ‘Who in the world am I?’ Ah, that’s the great puzzle!”
We went to Planet Hollywood for lunch and being coeliac I wasn’t expecting much. I was so wrong! There was 4 full pages of gluten free meals, sides and desserts! From pizzas to burgers, to pastas and steaks. It was amazing and I was completely spoilt for choice. I ended up having a chicken burger because it was one of the things I hadn’t had when eating out for just over 10 years. I was really excited but when it came out the bread nearly broke my teeth, so i ended up just eating the bits inside anyway… Totally should have gone for the pasta after all!
Although we were only there for 2 full days, it was amazing and I can’t wait to go back.
