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 Paris and got to see a few things but it was storming really bad so I wasn't able to go to the top of the Eiffel Tower but I did get to the top of The Arch of Triumph, which was pretty cool too.  The city itself is very dirty and I have to say, I was not impressed by it.  Within 5 minutes of getting there, I had a guy trying to scam me on the street with a "gold ring" scam.  I didn't take it.  Within an hour, I had a woman try the same thing and again, I did not take it.

Got some cool pics and saw a few interesting things but the rain kept me from doing a few things I wanted, mainly to visit Jim Morrison's grave.  That would have been cool.  I finally left after a while and drove through the back country where I saw quite a few cool little towns with some interesting points to them.  One was built on the Rhine canal with a lock as a display.  A few miles down the road I came across some kind of bridge memorial to possibly the Olympics but I'm not sure.  I didn't even know what country I was in as there really wasn't any kind of line or sign stating the country.

It was a well spent weekend and I'm looking forward to some more adventures.

Until then, Bill out...
