July 22nd - 3 years ago today...

Posted by Bill Bickford on Tuesday, July 22, 2014,
3 years ago today, Grandma left.  It's been 3 years where I still miss her and wish I had one more chance to see her and talk to her.  She was the calm to the storm.  The person you could always count on to listen to you and give an honest opinion.  She was always so loving, so gentle and so good to everyone she met. 

3 years ago today, Grandma left.  I was across the world when I heard.  I wish I would have been closer so I could hold her hand and hug and kiss her one more time.  I wish for ...

July 19th - 21st - Berlin

Posted by Bill Bickford on Monday, July 21, 2014,
What an incredible weekend!  It was simply, amazing.  Berlin is definitely one of the most fascinating and interesting places I have been.  There is so much history, so many stories, so many horrors and so many more other things.  To actually see and do all I wanted would have required a week and more Euro's but I did manage to make it to the Brandenburg Gate, The Berlin Wall, Checkpoint Charlie, a guard tower from the old wall, the Holocaust Memorial, The Berlin victory Column, The Soviet So...

July 13th - Europa park

Posted by Bill Bickford on Sunday, July 13, 2014,
Wow!  I have been busy on my weekends, that's for sure.  This weekend I went to Europa Park.  It's the second most popular theme park behind Disneyland Paris.  However, this theme park is owned by Mack.  They design and build rides and almost all the rides in this park are built by them.  It's also a roller coaster enthusiast's place to come and try a wide variety of coasters.

The first ride I went on is a hyper-coaster called Silver Star.  It was a very fast, smooth ride and a lot of fun.  It...

Disneyland Paris - Part 2

Posted by Bill Bickford on Saturday, July 12, 2014,
Alright.  We are back and ready to complete our journey and personal guide of Disneyland Paris in this, Part 2.  In Part 1, I covered The Disney Village, Main Street USA, Frontierland and Adventureland as well as Sleeping Beauty's Castle. 

Let me also add an observation I made as well.  I do not remember seeing any motorized scooters.  If there were any, they were minimal as European people prefer to walk and get exercise rather than get fat and lazy and drive an electric cart everywhere, eve...

July 4th & 5th - Disneyland Paris - Part 1

Posted by Bill Bickford on Monday, July 7, 2014,
OK everyone reading.  Here is the report of "My Trip to Disneyland Paris." 

Let me start by saying that this has been a dream of mine for 20 plus years.  That dream was to visit Disneyland Paris.  Or as it was named before, Euro Disneyland.  I had seen a lot of pictures, read a lot of articles and seen videos but I wanted to experience it all for myself.

On the drive from Stuttgart, which took about 5 1/2 hours, I was excited and anxious the entire time.  I couldn't wait to get to the resort a...

July 4th - 6th Disneyland and Paris

Posted by Bill Bickford on Monday, July 7, 2014,
Greeting everybody.  Was an incredible 4th of July weekend for me.  I got to go somewhere I've been wanting to go for over 20 years.  I finally made it to Disneyland Paris!!!  I felt like a kid again as I saw the signs and advertisements for Disneyland and got very excited when I saw the Tower of Terror from a distance.  It was an awesome trip.  I'm going to write up kind of a separate post on here describing my likes and dislikes about the park and the resort in general.

I also got to go to P...

July 1st - Welcome to July

Posted by Bill Bickford on Tuesday, July 1, 2014,
Greetings and welcome to July.  Amazing how fast this year is going but I guess when you're busy and things are going on at a quick pace, time is bound to move fast too.  Now if I could only figure out how to slow it down. 

So this weekend coming up is a 3 day weekend and I have made plans to get out of the country.  I was thinking about going to Berlin but decided there was more I wanted to see and do somewhere else.  The somewhere else is Euro-Disneyland!!!  Yes, I am finally getting to go ...
